This is Katya here and today we will be recycling an empty chocolate box into a lovely gift box.
We will need:
- empty box
- scrap paper
- embellishment of your choice
Measure all sides of the box’s lid and cut out pieces of cardstock, measuring 5 mm less than the box itself.
Cut out matching papers, again 5 mm less that the cardstock this time.
Using Antique Linen distress ink, distress all edges of the papers and the cardstock.
Next using matching threads, stitch all the papers and cardstock together.
To decorate I used part of a doily, sentiment, raffia and flowers. To finish it off I also added some rhinestones
I hope you liked this idea of decorating a box for Valentine’s Day.
