Sew and Tell: pin cushion gift box

I made this cute fabric covered gift box. The inspiration came from a craft on The Better Homes and Garden Handmade Christmas Gift site.

It’s a gift package pincushion. BHG used a foam square and wrapped it in fabric and ribbon. I made mine with a small sturdy gift box stuffed with fiber fill and topped with quilt batting. Then I wrapped the box in fabric and added the ribbon.

Either way, the pincushion is a perfect crafty gift for someone who sews.
