Little Christmas Present Ornament - Free Amigurumi Pattern - Raffamusa Designs

But actually, these little present boxes are perfect for any occasion! Just play around with the colors and you can make it for birthdays, baby showers, graduations, etc.

The concept of this amigurumi is very simple. We will just crochet a square box and put a lid on it. Then, finish everything off with a nice bow!

For the bow, I used a simple strand of yarn, but you can dig into your craft box and use some old ribbons and cords.
