Alright craftsters... I'm turning to you because I know you always have phenomenal ideas.  I want to craft something for my boss for boss's day.  Obviously I only have a couple days to do this, and I don't need anything super fancy.  But my idea is to make her some sort of box for her desk to hold gum.  She is always asking for gum, so I was going to buy her a lot of packs of gum and make a box to hold them.  I guess I'm thinking maybe around the size of a tissue box, or a little bit smaller.  At first I was thinking I could get a plain wooden box and paint it to look like a pack of gum, but then I remembered that I am not so great at painting.  Any ideas?
Thanks.   Smiley

What about making an origmi box. Here's a pattern that is easy and you can select any type of special print that you like to fit the occasion:


Here is a delightful printable Butterfly box, but you would need to fill it with something like chicklets:
