"Happy Holidays" Christmas Tree
Announcing our New Guest Design Team!

Christmas gift box

Gift box

During the days leading up to Christmas, there's nothing better than seeing brightly colored boxes sitting underneath a Christmas tree.  Instead of investing in something that's going to be torn to shreds on Christmas day, why not make this paper mache box that can be used for storing afterwards?

Here's how to make it: 

1.  Cover a paper mache’ box useing a xyron glue stick and creative imaginations, Christine Adolph silver foil printed papers. 

2.  Use Design Memory Craft gelato colors to tint the white background with the foam blending tool and water.

3.  Add clear rhinestones, a lace trim and lace bow for holiday sparkle.

Love the box top with the gems and ribbon. This would make a nice birthday present as well to store jewelry maybe, you gave me lots of ideas. Thanks for sharing.
