Gift boxes. What do you do when you don't have the appropriate size? I put each item I sell in a sturdy gift box. Because most of what I make is enameled copper and is breakable, I want it protected, and also want it to be gift-worthy for the recipient, including the buyer. I have various kraft two-piece cardboard jewelry boxes that accommodate most of my wares. But sometimes I make larger or odd-shaped products that require special boxes. I find myself searching online for boxes of the appropriate size, and give up because once I get out of the normal size jewelry gift box range, there just aren't many (affordable) choices. A couple years ago I found a youtube video of a guy hand-making a box. A really nice box, and I've made a few of these for rings. What do you do when you need a special box? Do you ever make your own boxes? Can you share a link to instructions or videos?
