Colorful Gift Box - Amigurumi Packaging

Hi there!
I had a friend telling me the other day I was like a character from the movie The Matrix,, because I put my mind on something crafty and 20 minutes later I've learned most of what's important to make it. This is how I learned to crochet. I found on Pinterest some really cute Amigurumi figures and a week later, I had spawned a whole basketball team of characters.(I did make an extra one later on, I'm not that sports challenged)

Amigurumi (編みぐるみ) is, of course, a Japanese word that means knitted stuffed toy.

All the patterns for the characters you'll see here, can be found at the Amigurumi Today site free to watch while online and you can also download a PDF version for a small fee in case you want to print them out.
The finished Boxes are 6.5 inches tall x 4 inches wide x 3.5 inches deep.

For the boxes I used a heavy - 80 lb, linen textured, white cardstock. The main piece is a bit over 11 inches and if placed correctly on your mat, you can be cut it from an 8.5 x 12 inches piece o paper. The bottom of the box is a separate piece and you can use scraps to cut it from. The colored insert was cut from a bright Neenah 65 lb specialty cardstock, but you can use any regular 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock.
I did not want to use cut lines to guide the folding of the box, but instead I designed score lines to give the finished box a more professional look. You will have to change the layer attributes for those scoring layers, so follow the video tutorial to get them right.
Make sure to use a strong tape to put it together. Using a scoring board and a bone folder to make the creases very sharp and have that clean look.
Finish the boxes wrapping them on a thick cellophane and putting a piece o gift wrap tape to hold it; this tape has a nice matte finish.

This is very easy to make box to display your figures or use it as a gift box.
