Hidden Hexagon Surprise

Hi everyone

I promised i would show you a cool gift box i had come up with. Well this is it and love it. I am sure that whoever you gift this to will be pretty amazed that you have made it yourself. Its a pretty large box and lots of room for treats or gifts.

I did use a 6″ and 3″ hexagon die to make this box but if you have a scan and cut or circuit etc you could make your own templates. You can also find some free templates online to print out and then draw round them.

I really hope you like this unusual gift box and will give it a try. Its really pretty simple to make. Below you can find all the written measurements and also the link for the you tube tutorial.
