Pretty 2 in 1 Gift Boxes

Hi everyone, I left my Mother’s Day makes to the last minute this year, but I did manage to squeeze in a nice packaging idea.

This 2 in 1 gift box folds up neatly and is secured with a couple magnets.


I purchased a box of 24 Ferrero Rocher chocolates for around £5, so to be able to split the amount and make 2 lovely gifts was a bonus!

I popped a sentiment in the middle, however this is a great spot to place a gift card.
