Before I got a car this year, getting actual presents was pretty hard for me to do so we always made homemade presents along with homemade cards. (: 

The easiest thing to make is a box, but what can people do with a box? Well, I was looking around Pinterest and I found this idea for a "Love Jar" where you could put nice things about the person in it so whenever they felt kind of out of it they could just reach in the jar to make themselves feel better. I thought that was an awesome idea, but why not expand on it? Instead of having compliments in one jar, I decided to make multiple little boxes with little inspirational quotes for a wide array of emotions. I'm not sure what to call it, I guess it's a quote box, but this is what the finished product ended up like!

 Now I'll try my best to explain how I ended up creating this. First you'll have to get all your materials. (:

**Correction: It should say 1 3/4 in. instead of 13/4 in.
This is how the handles turned out. (:
I know it's not the coolest or most exciting thing, but I love making/receiving homemade gifts. There's just something about someone putting in so much time and effort into a gift that just amazes me. (: What I like about this gift is that you can do whatever you want with it. You don't have to put quotes in it, instead you could put compliments like the Love Jar, or you could even store your jewelry in it. It's all up to you! If you guys have any questions let me know, and if you decide to try it out I'd love to see how yours turn out! :D
