“Liked this very much, thank you”

This clever gift box is also a cute storage bin. Don't you just love giving gifts in a special package that is part of the gift itself? The Gift-n-Store has a build in "bow" on top and converts into a great looking fabric bin. Choose your favorite two fabrics according to the occasion or the recipient's taste. Instructions for making your own trim are included or you can use ribbon instead.

Two sizes are included. The small box is 4" x 4", not including the top flaps. The large is 6" x 6" not including the top flaps.

This pattern is written for intermediate sewers. You will need to be familiar with common sewing symbols and techniques.

You need only a basic sewing machine with straight stitch. And remember, if you have any questions or problems as you are sewing your gift box, I am here to help!

Happy Stitching!

I like the pattern and finished product but both sizes are a lot of work. The pattern is clear and very easy to follow. the most frustrating part is turning the petal parts right side out. Would recommend this pattern.
