It really depends on what you’re looking for.  If you want a tiered one, get the 3 brown boxes pack thing at Michaels or AC Moore.

@Des1902:  The boxes at the craft stores have lids.  🙂  I haven’t made one yet, so I don’t know how easy it’s going to be.  :/

I used regular boxes.. a large Coach one for the bottem and 2 different sized Victoria’s Secret Boxes for the top layers. I’ll post a pic once it’s finished.

That’s very pretty!

Cut a slit in the lid of the top box. Use a ruler and exacto knife to make sharp, clean cuts.

Cut a larger area out of the lid of the bottom box so the cards can fall through, but smaller than the size of the top box.

Cover the two boxes and two lids in the fabric of your choice.

Make a cut shaped like this   >


<    in the fabric of the two lids.

Fold the edges of the fabric under and glue them in place.

Glue on the rhinestones on the top box overlapping the cut edge just a bit.

Glue the top box to the bottom box so that it covers the cut out area.

Tie the ribbon in place, make your bow and add the jewel.

You might want to put a few dabs of glue under the ribbon to hold it in place.
