I called these the “Hungry monster” gift box. I made these when my daugther went to a birthdayparty. So she could put the gift inside. She was quite happy to give the gift, cause the “wrapping” was kinda uniqe. I saw a picture of a chicken made this way. And found it quite amazing. So hats off to the person ho came with the idea first.! I think many crocheters have been inspired to make their own versions of these. And the best part. You can eat the chocolate as an excuse to get to the box. I usually ask my kid if I can have theirs. The empty boxes. And because im worth it, I hide my chocolate and eat it when the kids have gone to sleep. Or they don`t look. 😀

Found button eyes and a rose from my cookie box (I use a cookie box for all my buttons and small “nice to have” stuff).
So I attached the eyes. And sewed on the rose.
I wish you all a wonderful evening. :))
