Drop Down Gift Boxes & Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone, on Friday I shared my last Valentine’s themed project for the week. This is a really fun project and great for many occasions.

It’s a variation of the Exploding Gift Boxes I’ve seen, I always like to change things up a little and make it my own, so for this one I have 3 boxes that drop down and a section for you to put a gift card.

Everything folds up into a compact box shape with a lid.

I used a selection of hearts and simple sentiment for decoration finished with some Nuvo Drops & sequins.
