Hi everyone! Have you ever needed gift wrap, bag or a box for that last minute Christmas present? I have, so today I’m sharing a way to up-cycle a box that would be tossed in the trash and turn it into a beautiful way to present a gift to a family member or friend. So let’s get started!
The box I had laying around measured approximately 9 1/2″x3″. I cut and glued a total of six pieces of patterned cardstock slightly smaller than each panel of the box.
I cut out several poinsettia and leaves (I hope to create some more projects/presents…fingers crossed this month) from the Elegant Poinsettia Thinlits.
I shaped two of the largest, one of both the middle and smallest flower dies and two of the leaves with a Stylus. Once I had them shaped the way I wanted I adhered each on top of one another. The center piece of the flower…for the life of me I don’t remember the name…I rolled into itself and added a drop of glue to keep together. Once adhered in the center of the poinsettia I applied Gold Glitter Glue and let dry.
I adhered the poinsettia along with gold thread and ribbon to one end of the box to finish off the box. Easy peasy! You could change it up with a different type of flower and create a cool birthday present too.
