I would never think to make boxes and glue them together to make a card with drawers. Where did you come up with the idea? I can think of so many treats to stash in the little drawers. My daughter would love some jewelry and chocolate. My boys would prefer hardtack candy and skin products. I can think of a little great niece of mine who would love to tear this up and find all sorts of goodies too.
