These boxes stand around 10 cm tall and would look lovely as a place setting on a party table,   filled with little gifts, jokes and of course a paper hat, but they also make extremely elegant gift boxes. The Toadstool Trinket box is larger at 14cm square and  has taken up residence on my bedside table and I use it to keep all manner of important things in it.


This project came about when I was thinking of alternatives to Christmas Crackers. I could have made some felt crackers, but I wanted to do something a little different and something that would be useful all year round. The first box I made was the pink cracker box, I like how it looks a bit like the frilly ends of a cracker and that the lid unfolds rather than gets removed. Halfway through making the blue tassel box, I realised how much it resembled a mushroom with its domed lid, so of course, I then had to make the larger, toadstool version.
