I had a little gift for my mom for this special day (she never wants me to buy anything for her!) and I discovered directions for the perfect gift box here. It was so much fun to make! I chose to leave the paper plain, without embellishment, because I know my mom will probably want to use it in her home and knew she would want it plain. It would be fun to tie a ribbon around or put chipboard or other decorations on the sides but knew that wouldn't suit her taste.
