Poinsettia Gift Box

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.

Canvas Corp: Noel Saggy Baggy

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a gift bag I decorated using a Lime Green Saggy Baggy and a Petaloo DIY Burlap Wild Sunflower paintable flower. This was a super quick and easy project to put together and was less than an hour to complete.

I spritzed the flower with Plain Jane Fire Baseboard Mist and let dry (you can use a blow dry to speed up the process).

I cut from the Green Burlap Sheet a Holly leaf used the Holly Branch Diecut, applied Mod Podge to the front of the leaf and once dry I spritzed with Kiwi Glimmer Mist.  I cut two inches of lace from the Lace Trimmings Assorted Pack and gathered in the center and tied off with Jute Cord. I tied off two more bows with the  Jute Cord and then adhered all the pieces to the bag with Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac.

I clipped to the jute cord a Mini Lime Green Clothespin and a tag from the Krafty Christmas Assortment of Tags. I added a button and a dew drop to the tag to finish it off. Oh so simply to decorate you can whip a bunch out in no time.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
