DIY Shop 4: Handmade Gift Boxes

GL DIY SHOP4 1

Hi there! Gina here! I was so excited to receive the new DIY Shop 4 collection.  All of those pretty kraft, gold and black papers along with shiny embellishments are just perfect for gift giving!  I started by gathering my favorite papers from the collection and the 1-2-3 Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers. I used the punch board to create 3 unique gift boxes by following the instructions that come with the board.

I then embellished each box using a combination of crepe paper, tulle, ribbon, twine and netting to make each one a little different from the last.

Next, I created a small card measuring 4"x3" that matches perfectly with the wrapped boxes.  I used Thickers to spell out the word "hello" but this could sentiment could easily be swapped out with the recipient's name.

Lastly, I used little touches of lace here and there.  Embellishments like sequins, flair badges and gold foil push pins helped me to complete the finishing touches on my pieces.
