Why do presents often seem to come with a hefty price tag for the buyer? Also, the cost seems to go up every year as children age. Gift buying can be very expensive if you have several children and a spouse who is so difficult to shop for that you can only buy him really expensive things like power tools or computers. Did that sound bitter?
A few years ago, my family decided to humour me by agreeing to my homemade Christmas gift challenge. In short, each family member was to make a gift for one another. It could be as simple or as complex as they wanted. Of course, my husband and I did help any of the girls who asked but the results were amazing. I loved the look of amazement on the girls’ faces when they opened their presents. I can still remember exactly what they gave each other. Believe me, that cannot be said about any other Christmas time.
I had a lot of fun making the Origami boxes and getting very creative with the instructions. Each girl received a different set of instructions. How can you go wrong in a craft as simple as this one?! Check it out!
