Ok, you have finished your crochet project but now you are wondering how to wrap your crochet baby shoes. Don´t worry, I will show you how to make it.

It is so simple and it is so cheap so, it is perfect!

In my shop you can find crochet patterns for babies and for adult so I will show how to make two different  gift boxes and how to decorate them using yarn.

First of all you have to make the gift box, I found two excellent video tutorials,  both of them from  Red Ted Art ,her explanations are so clear , so simply follow the instructions she shows in the video. It consists of a square paper box for baby shoes and a rectangular paper box for adult crochet shoes.

The most important thing is the size of your cardboard, I made some tests and finally these are the perfect sizes to make your gift box:

You will need 2 pieces of cardboard (same of different color) to make one box:

For baby shoes: 1 square cardboard 13″ x 13″ (top)  and 1 square cardboard 12″ x 12″ (base)  Follow these instructions for small square box.

For adult slippers: 1 square cardboard 20″ x 20″ (top) and 1 square cardboard 19″ x 19″ (base). Follow these instructions for rectangular box.

When your box is finished it is time to decorate it, use your scrap yarn to make two little pom poms, they are super easy and extremely fast to make. If you don´t know how to make them click here to visit this video tutorial.
