If you're a card maker, you probably get asked by friends and family to make cards for them to give to other people.

Rather than just dribbling them out one by one or when asked, your handmade cards make lovely gifts. All you need to do is present them in a gift box and voila! Gift giving sorted!

I stumbled on these Kraft cardboard boxes when I was in the Reject Shop. They are designed as 'grazing boxes' and you'll find them in the Party aisle. They are perfect for packaging a set of handmade cards, but of course, you'll need to decorate the box first!

I have done a very quick and simple version. I chose DSP from the Countryside Inn pack which I absolutely love. I cut a strip to fit around the outside edge of the box. I had to piece it together because I needed more than the 12" sheet. I stamped the top edge of the box around the window. If you don't like the window, you could cut a piece of coordinating DSP and cover it up. It's finished with a tag and some beautiful ribbon.

You could step it up any way you like. It also makes a great box to store cards in, so your recipient will always know where their stash is.

Enjoy your week.
