It's really handy to  have a gift box suitable for the male members of our friends and family!!

When I came across this youtube video I had to give it a go. I just knew it would make a fabulous little gift box to give to my hubby for his birthday this January.

I will use the base as the opening and pop a little gift inside (the mints in the photo are just to give you an idea, but I will probably put something else into it).  See 2nd photo by "swiping" the 1st photo. 

My box is quite sturdy because I used card. The measurement I used was 10 inch x 7 inch (255mm x 178 mm), but it wouldn't be difficult to resize if you wanted to. 

Here is the tutorial that I used, there are 2 other gift box ideas in the tutorial as well:

Press forward to 5.27 in the video to see the shirt box instuctions.

Edited in: After making this box I designed a "Shirt Sleeve" card to match with it.

You can link to the matching card here Shirt Sleeve Card

This is such a great idea. I love the checked shirt and the whole thing works perfectly.xx

Thanks May. Any checked paper works quite well for a shirt, I think, and it's a handy way to utilise the plainer buttons too.

The card looks like black and white gingham. It's great. I am guessing your hubby is a capricorn?...like me and other half! Good luck in the challenge!

Thanks Angela. Yes, he's Capricorn and also completely Yorkshire... So there's quite a bit of common ground there. 😜
