Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

This is actually the first time I did a card in a loooooooooooooooong time, and I don't do cards often.  But I am organizing a Secret Santa on another forum I belong to, and the owner of the forum added a little rule to it that any present we send to each other has to be accompanied by a homemade card.  I was making my card this morning and thought that the items I am sending my partner are small enough to be incorporated in the card.  Since the card had a pop up Christmas tree, I was decorating it with little cut outs that were to be presents.  I thought it would be cute to make some of them actually function as present boxes for the items I was sending her (snowflake ornaments and a tile necklace).

So I did a largish one for the front of the card to hold the ornaments, and a smallish one inside (not shown), under the tree, to hold the necklace.  I also did a tutorial on my blog in case anyone wants to do it too, because I thought it would be a cute way to present small gifts, or gift cards.  I kept mine plain, but obviously patterned paper could be used, stickers, stencils, scalloped edged scissors, etc.

Let's stick to regular Monopoly. The game is crazy enough as it is; how can an iron be a landlord?
