Little golden boxes are the best start for a small present. 
And under the Christmas tree they look very decorative. 
Recycle tip: a empty cardboard roll (for example a toilet/ kitchen paper roll) can be used by folding the sides inwards. 
With one pack of gold foil you can make many many decorations!
 
How to
Use a warm red color as surface, but you can also you turquoise for a trendy surface or black if you want to go fancy/chic. 
With DO&DRY clay you can make all sorts of shapes which, when dry, can be decorated with gold foil. But you can also use ready to use objects. 
Glue everything on the boxes.
Use special gold foil glue : Tannin Sealer by Jo Sonja’s,
but an other slow drying glue can also be used. 
Apply the glue all over the surface and let dry until sticky,
place the gold foil gently on the glue and press gently. 
Brush away the excess gold foil with a hard brush.
Store this small parts, because you can always use it again!
