Squashed Orb Gift Boxes

Hi everyone today I have these unusual Squashed Orb Gift Boxes.

I absolutely love these and for those of you who follow me regularly will have seem the Orb Tree Decorations I posted last week, well these have evolved from them. All I did was remove the middle strip of squares and it gave me this shape…cool eh!?

As I always say don’t be scared off by this project because it’s very straightforward to make and just down to some clever scoring.
