DIY Ideas for a Box for Wooden Blocks

Good Questions

Q. I purchased some wood blocks as a gift, but they don't come with a box. Are there any cute DIY ideas to hold a total of 56 blocks?

Editor: If you're a sewer, you could make a simple drawstring bag (or simplify and close it with velcro). Cindy at Skip To My Lou has an easy tutorial for a small one that you could enlarge. I've seen inexpensive wooden crates at hobby stores that are perfectly attractive or could be painted or embellished a bit. Readers, what are your ideas?
