I played a mobile game with a friend called DrawSomething. It was a game where you drew a picture and your opponent guessed what word you were drawing. Answering correctly would award you gold coins that could be spent on particular items in the game. We played this game every day for weeks.

I dismantled a box of crayons to use as a template for a new box. I scanned it recreated it in Adobe Illustrator. I applied graphics from the game onto the box. I found some chocolate gold coins and placed them in the box.

I’ve always loved making gifts like this. Buying something at the store and wrapping it is fine, but making something custom that captures a moment in time is more rewarding.
