Elegant gingerbread gift box with swirl roses

Gingerbread box by Tunde Dugantsi

I created this box along with some ABC cookies last summer and I just realized that I never published the box.

So here is this box. I made some of these layered boxes before, in different shapes: heart, oval, hexagon, star. They had one thing in common: I used a set of graduating cutters for them.

What if you have a gorgeous shape you want to use, but only in one size? For the sides you can use two sizes of a generic shaped cutter (circle, oval, square - whatever is closest in shape to the cutter you want to use for lid). For this box I used a great plaque cutter for top and bottom and circles to cut out the sides of the box.

Here you can see how I created it:

Did you ever make a cookie box?

  1. It's not just the thought (of the person or of giving something to that person) that counts. The thought put into selecting the perfect gift also matters much.
