A4 wash bag style gift box

imageThis is based on the brilliant man sized wash bag by Elaine Jackson of paperbuttoncrafts. I needed a box somewhat smaller and loved the keep closed aspect, so here is a version that uses just one piece of A4. A couple of manic weeks have meant little crafting time, however here is my A4 version of Elaine’s man sized wash bag box.  Instructions for hers can be found on her blog http://www.papercraftbutton.blogspot.co.uk

As you can see, having made the boxes on video I decided they looked a bit bare, so out with the Petite Pairs sentiments and a couple of punches and now they feel a bit more finished.
