I know, cuff links are passe. But my son is a clothes pony and we found a pair of cufflinks to give him for Xmas and I thought we should present them in a box. Walnut and piece of bamboo for the pull top.

That is what I was going to say when I saw the title; CUFF LINKS??!! Can you find shirts for them any more?
:-))

Very nice work.

cuff links: yep, you can still find shirts for them, very classy. Optical illusion? Nope just set the lid wrong, it’s not square, dimensions are about 4 by 4.5 inches. Should be an ear ring case. Thinking of making a large box with the X shaped dividers for ear rings. I’m told by a picky person that being able to separate the pair of ear rings would keep them from scratching each other. Who am I to argue with the fairer and all that…

That’s a great little gift I know he’ll treasure the box as much as the links, I like the diagonal dividers. I wear cufflinks all the time when I’m not in my work clothes perhaps I could find some chequered links to go with the check workshirts?? Mmm now there’s a thought
