Gift box re-cap
Thought it might be a good idea to show ALL the gift boxes I’ve made this season, all in one post together. So, if you’re thinking you already seen all of the following pictures; you’re right! So this post is really more for future reference and for posterity!
Dollar Tree gift boxes, topped with DT nests and eggs (I glittered the eggs and added some reindeer moss to fill out the nest) The bow on the was on top of the box when I bought it. Just pulled it off (since it would have been covered by the nest anyhow!) and put it back on where it was visible!
White fabric covered boxes; tea stained; topped with a tea stained crepe paper rosette and DT feather birds with a glitter crowns.
A couple more of the same boxes, just different ‘toppings’ that the previous ones shown. These are topped with bundles of vintage frosted glass ornaments; some ribbon, a glittery snowflake and a tiny ‘joy’ tag. (tag was printed on vintage dictionary page)
This is just one of those ‘little extras’ that I like to do. I add a handful of paper shred inside all of my gift boxes. This is my own ‘recipe’ for paper shred; a combination of store bought kraft shred, hand folded and cut book pages and sheet music shred, hand folded and cut tissue paper, some bits of leftover gold ribbon cut into tiny pieces . . . you get the idea. A little bit of everything!
Another DT box topped with a pair of white bottle brush trees and little ceramic house; all also from DT. I just added glitter and glue! (and paper shred!)
These are ‘use up those leftover snowmen from the store’! Just plopped a snowman on a box and done! (priced super cheap to get rid of them PLUS an additional 40% off for my downsizing sale!)
Another one of the tea stained fabric boxes, this time topped with a gold resin bird wearing a vintage sheet music crown. I placed a crepe paper rosette rimmed with gold glitter on top of the box and glued the bird into place in the center of that. The sheer bow on top of the bird’s feet (hiding all the ugly glue!) is the bow that came on the box originally again. Just pulled it off and made better use of it!
I should have made more of these, as they sold the fastest. Now I’ll know for next year. AND I’ll be able to easily find my ‘gift box post’ to remind me when the time comes!
Happy Gift Wrapping to all!
