    You will find classic cigar boxes in places such as flee markets or in granddad’s attic.

    Then you can get to work: First measure the inside dimensions of the bottom of the box and cut the foam to the corresponding size. You can do this quickly and precisely with the Cutter adapter of the IXO V. To do so, simply press the foam together lightly at the cutting point using your thumb and index finger, apply the Cutter and carefully start cutting. Then cut the cut-out foam panel lengthwise in three pieces of equal size.

    In the next step you can find a use for one of last season’s shirts: Place the piece of foam on the shirt and use the IXO Cutter to cut out the shirt fabric, leaving enough extra for it to be folded over. Repeat this for the other two pieces of foam.

    Then wrap the cut-out shirt fabric around the pieces of foam and glue it in place. The GluePen is good for this because it enables the glue to be applied with pinpoint accuracy.

    In the next step you measure the height and width of the inside of the box and cut two strips with these dimensions out of the foamboard. These will be used as partitions to organise the accessories. For the strips, again cut out the shirt fabric, leaving enough extra to fold it over. Using the GluePen, apply glue to the entire surface of the foamboard strips.

    Pull the fabric straight and wrap it around the foamboard strips coated with glue. When doing so, fold in the ends to make a smooth surface and to make sure nothing is protruding.

    To finish with, place the upholstered pieces of foam next to each other in the cigar box and insert the foamboard strips in between as partitions.

    Tip:The remaining shirt fabric can be used to make little pillows for watches and cufflinks. To do so, simply cut the fabric to the required size, fill it with cotton wool and sew it shut.

    The special gift for the special man is finished. This is, of course, a gift he can also give himself.
