Études de fleurs (ca 1820) – Pyramid Gift Boxes

Today I’m sharing another batch of Pyramid Gift Boxes, this time wrapped in floral plates from Études de fleurs et de fruits (ca 1820):

I contrasted this set with rough twine, but you can of course use anything you wish to string them with: lace, pretty ribbon, yarn or embroidery floss! To get my string of choice through the holes, I make a little “needle” of a piece of wire (about 5″) by bending it in half and twisting it around my string. This makes threading easy peasy 🙂

The Pyramid Gift Box is very easy to make, my girls are making these themselves all the time to use for gifting cash when their friends have birthdays. I must have made a gazillion different designs for these, and in addition they are super easy to embellish further. The Pyramid Gift Box is perfect for litte gifts, party treats or simply cash; like a 3D-card 😀

Here are low resolution previews of each of the boxes:
