I haven't seen anyone post these little boxes anywhere. They can be addicting to make. I liked the holographic quality of the ornament on this card. It's fun to give someone a gift in a box made from the card they gave you last year. The size of the finished box depends on the size of the card. I'm sure there's some mathmatical formula that will tell you all that but since I really stink at math.....

I have to agree about the holographic quality of the ornament card. I think that it looks really awesome! My Family and cousins used to make these when we were a lot younger, and I was thinking of them last year;p Unfortunately, I couldn't remember how to fold them Cry It always feels so wrong to throw away cards that someone has sent you, and I think this is an excellent way to reuse them. Also, I really like the idea of giving them back to the original card giver;p
