Crochet Mini Christmas Present Boxes Pattern

These little boxes are great for little presents to go in (anything to save on all the wrapping!), for hiding in a few sweets, and would also be perfect for just using as a decoration this Christmas. You can use any colours you like for these, I think they would look great in some sparkly wool – I thought I had some but wasn’t able to find it so opted for the red and green theme, I will be definitely making some sparkly ones for next year!.
