On Thursday I am helping give a fanTAStic gift to a marvelous woman. I hope she loves it. [But we haven’t given it to her yet, so–on the off chance she stumbles onto my blog before then–you’ll just have to wait to see!]
Meanwhile, I wanted to wrap this little gift in a manner worthy of its cuteness, and I decided on this little box.
…The only problem was that this little old gold jewelry gift box I dug out of my jewelry drawer was neither cute nor worthy.
But never fear! Scrapbook paper and glue stick to the rescue!
I just cut two coordinating rectangles of scrapbook paper, each wide and long enough to wrap the bottom (or top) and sides plus a bit extra to tuck in. Then I cut four slits in each piece, two at either end running the same line as the bottom (or top) edge.
Then go to town with your glue stick. Fold the scrapbook rectangle up and around one side of the bottom, then the opposite, then fold the ends up-and-over. And you’ll have a pretty [half of a] box… Then repeat for the top, and you’re ready to roll!
Total cuteness. I have another little touch or two in mind to complete this gift wrap, but I’ll share those in the big gift reveal post on Friday. [You’re gonna gush right along with me. So.Much.Cuteness!]
