I designed a box template based off of a pizza box and am having way too much fun with it! It's just the right size to hold a small gift (like jewelry), a beautifully decorated cookie (think wreath shaped for Christmas time or heart shaped for Valentines Day). It even fits a gift card just perfectly. The finished size is right around 3 1/2" square. Here is one I did this afternoon:
The one below is one I made from a clear transparency. First I found a pattern I liked from a wrapping paper image from The Container Store online. I printed it out onto the transparency and then printed out the template on top. Then it's just a matter of cutting and gluing. It does look much better in person! (It's just hard to take a picture of something clear. There is a pearl bracelet inside in case you were wondering what that was.)
And a treat for you...Download the template here. Let me know if you use it! I'd love to see what everyone creates!
