Chinese takeout gift...

I made this for my daughter as a gift and hung it on the tree Christmas eve. A little Chinese takeout box and inside was the fortune cookie I made from a circle of felt. The fortune inside says Chinese for two. I might've gotten more elaborate if I hadn't waited til the 11th hour. Literally. I think it was like 11 pm on Christmas eve, or close to it. LOL
I found the file for the box online. The original assembly instructions have the side flaps glued on the inside, but that's not how a takeout box is. Unfortunately, it turns out the side flaps weren't made to overlap either like they should. But it more or less worked out anyway.

This is such a great idea. One could use it to propose to a girl.
