Decorated Gift Box

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends!   Today I would like to show you a project I created for Paper Crafter’s Library members a few weeks ago.  As I walked through the isles of my local dollar store I saw these kraft colored paper mache boxes.  While the box itself was nothing special, my mind starting thinking about all the ways I could embellish this it and turn it into a beautiful box to house a special gift.  I embellished this particular box with felt flowers that I created, along with some tulle ribbon and various greenery stems that were purchased from my local craft store.

  1. That turned out amazingly. The pearls look so lustrous against the ivory, tan and gold; one of my favourite colour combos. Funny that they still call sprigs that aren’t green, ‘greenery’!

  2. A beautiful box for a special gift. The monochromatic colors add an elegant feelingnalong wth the pearls and Foch of shimmer. Great combination of casual and formal materials.
