No mess Christmas craft recycled gift boxes

There aren’t many genuinely no mess Christmas craft ideas (most seem to involve glitter)!  But this cute little gift box (made from an old Christmas card) creates absolutely NO mess – no glue, no off-cuts, no bits of tape or paint drips.

This makes it the perfect activity for busy parents and teachers who want to spend time crafting rather than clearing up at Christmas.
