Holiday idea #2... Grid Box


These boxes are so super easy to make, I love them!! You cut a piece of card stock to 6"x6" then score every 2" vertically and then again horizontally making a grid of nine 2" boxes. Fold the corner pieces in half, making them into two triangles that point in towards the center of the box when folded up. Punch holes in those corners and tie ribbon through to hold your box together. The pattern paper pieces are just 1 3/4" squares.
I usually fill these boxes with candy, but a small ornament this time of year would be super cute. You could also change the dimensions to make the box bigger and put little lotions and other fun items inside. 
Keep your ideas coming in, lets all share the great ideas we all have. Don't forget you have a chance at winning a fabulous Daily Window Product!!
Thanks for stopping by
