Pyramid Gift Box

Nearing the Christmas season always has me on the lookout for new ways to package small gifts. I was inspired to create this little box after visiting Cambridge's Gallery M.
I started with one of my samples topped with my favorite multi-coloured chunky yarn. Painted the inside and stitched three sides together to form the pyramid shape. I then added a tiny string of seed beads to hold the trap door closed and 60's style buttons were used for the feet.
