Hello friends! Today I have an simple gift wrapping idea. A little outside of the box. haha :0) I love a good presentation when it comes to gift wrapping! I admit that most of the time I end up using the gift bag and tissue paper combo:0) BUT when I have time, I like to dress things up a bit! You can find ALL of these things a MICHEALS stores (remember I’m a #michaelsmaker this year ) so it’s a one stop shop for you. Plus everything’s in gold and black because I just love this combo so much! But feel free to switch things up if you like.
Ready to Paint Shadow Box ( Michaels)
Krylon Glitter Blast Gold
Patterned Wrapping Paper
3-4 Mini Gifts ( Mine are from Michaels Dollar Section)
Glue dots or any other adhesive
1.5 inch ribbon
First tape of the glass part of the shadow box so that you can spray paint the wooden side of the box.
Next, use about two coats of glitter blast in gold ( or any other fun color) to cover the entire box. Allow about 1 hour in between coats.After 3-4 hours add a clear coat on top for extra protection.
Once your shadow box is dry, line the back of the box with a fun patterned paper! I got this wrapping paper from Michaels! Secure it with adhesive.
Then arrange the gifts in the box and use glue dots to adhere items so they stay in place! You can find glue dots in the craft adhesive section!
The last thing I did was tie the box with a simple satin ribbon and added these mini Merry Christmas tags I made for my tree this year! Super cute right? Again all you need to to is add some adhesive to the back of the tag so it stays in place.
So there you have! Easy right?0
