I’m so pleased with this little project! I collaborated with Jordan of Polkadot Prints to design a darling house-shaped gift box that is as easy as pie to put together. You’ll want to make one for neighbors, postal workers, teachers — pretty much everyone you know!

If you prefer, use the X-acto knife to cut out the window panes. The box will still be perfectly cute if the panes aren’t cut. : )
