I really love the Chocolate Brown Magnetic Gift Boxes in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog.  (pg 33, item 116796, 2 for $4.95) They are wonderful quality and very reasonable!! 

This is how we decorated them in class recently…

Thanks to my friend Kimberly for the tag idea.. I love using her great ideas!  I cut the tags with the BIG SHOT and the Two Tags die and Kraft Cardstock.  DID YOU SEE the great SALE!? …. the TWO TAGS DIE IS ON SALE!!  CLICK HEREfor info!

We sponged Chocolate Chip ink onto Kraft Corduroy buttons… the Chocolate Chip buttons were just a tad too dark.

If you wrap the Striped Chocolate Chip ribbon just around the lid, the recipient doesn't have to undo the bow to open the box! 🙂  (I call that a "TV Box".. that's how they give a wrapped gift on TV shows)  : )
