Paper Box Dominos

When a teacher asked her students for help with an idea to decorate a small white jewelry box, one of our students came up with this simple yet cute idea.  The teacher provided boxes and several colors of  construction paper and glue sticks.  The student glued black construction paper all around the box.  She cut circles using a hole punch and white strips out of copy paper than glued on the box top to create the look of a Domino.

How cute are these boxes?  They would make nice packages for a man's gift. Or a lady's gift, for example a  necklace made from a domino that are so popular these days.  Oh - how about a gift card?  Hummm....  I think I've got a great idea for Christmas gifts for the nieces and nephews this year.  It would be a simple and quick project and easy to transport the gifts.   What would you put in these small packages?

Oh these are SO cute! I'm not sure what I'd put in them, but I love the idea of the domino design. You could even put the number of dots to represent the age of the person's birthday. Super cute idea!
