Elegant Gift Box & Card in One, with Annette



Construct an elegant card and gift box in one!  The card is the top of the box and, when you lift the flaps on the side, you have a gift box for enclosing treats of your choice (e.g. soap, candy bars).  A gift card/greeting tag/money slot is also part of the design.

The pre-cutting will all be done for you so your primary goal will be learning how to “build” the structure including where to place the magnets so that the box is totally functional.  You will go home with an extra sample (unfinished) so that you can refer to it as needed.  Of course, you will also have detailed instructions.
