Each month we will have an "Anyting But A Card Challenge".
The name explains itself and each month will just be a simple challenge to get us to venture away from cardmaking.
Lauren Meader has some great gift box templates that she sells on her website. She has a trial template that is free. There are instructions and everything to help you cut out and put together the gift box.

A couple of tips: 1. Use good quality thick cardstock. Otherwise the box will be flimsey. 2. Keep it simple - it won't be so intimidating.

Add the item to your cart and hit "check out" - it's free. Then you will be able to download the files. If you are cutting by hand download the .PDF format. She also has the .SVG format for you CRICUT lovers out there. :o) Let me know if you have any questions.
