Pretty Mug/Cup Gift Box with Ribbon Tie Detail

Hi everyone, here is my new Mug/Cup gift box.

This is a really handy size and something that I think a lot of us give to friends and family for many occasions throughout the year.

I’m always looking for different ways to change the way a box opens or closes, and I love this simple but effective way of using the ribbon and weaving it through the lid.

This box will hold the most common, standard mug, however, there is a little extra space, so if you have something a little more rounded or with a decorative handle, it still may fit.


Almost Christmas paper pad available here.

Simply Creative Gift Tag stamp here.
