HOW TO PERSONALISE A GIFT BOX

If like us, you leave the wrapping until Christmas Eve, this post might help you with some last minute wrapping ideas.

Boxes. They’re great – you shove the present in, pop a lid on and boom, you’re done. Bit sad though… isn’t it?

As such, we’ve added a few little tweaks to make the humble gift box a little more well… flamboyant!

We ADORE our new Gems wrapping range for Christmas this year, so we opted for a hexagonal box. Then we passed it over to our in-house wrapping expert Lauren to see what she would do with it. Her brief was – make this jazzy. Girl did good.

Materials

Gather up your essential wrapping tools! Shredded tissue, a Gems gift box, ribbons, sequins and a gift tag, plus invisible tape, scissors and a glue gun or some UHU glue.

Step 7

Now we want to add some ribbons around the box to hold the lid on, which also look beyootiful! Glue the first one round and add two more at regular intervals.

More sequins now – add spots of glue and layer up a few sequins in the centre. It looks so pretty!

That’s it! Easy. Question is, will you be making the effort, or just shoving it in the box?
