Crochet Box

Most of my crafting has been papercrafting lately. But I have recently started to crochet again. I'm in a Chanukah swap over at and having a blast with it! We are to make 8 items for our buddy - so what does this have to do with crochet? Well I decided I was going to present my gifts to Holly (my buddy) in non traditional ways - no store bought wrapping paper
That wasn't a swap requirement but I thought it would be fun! So I made this little crochet "box". It turns out I'm not going to be using it for Hollly as its not a size that I'll need. Isn't it cute? It was really easy to make. I just crocheted 5 squares of about the same size - actually they are rectangles. Slip stitch the 4 sides to the bottom to make like a "t" and then stitch the sides together. I may make a lettersize one to leave on the desk in our kitchen for the incoming mail I haven't dealt with yet.
Don't forget to stop by Craft It Wednesday! Participating in that blog has really helped me with consistancy and the stuff there is so fun to see!
