Another Pinterest inspired crafty make here, this time gift boxes. I don't know about you, but I love the gift boxes and bags you buy to pop gifts into, but aren't they expensive? So, I had a go at making my own, a mixture of a bag and a box, made from an old cereal box (I cut the box in half and made both these boxes)
Before anyone points it out, yes, I admit it, they are very Carole styley!!! I covered the boxes both inside and out with my lovely parcel paper and made another bottom from stronger card and again covered that with parcel paper just to make it all a bit stronger. I wasn't entirely confident in the strength of my double sided tape so I have put regular sellotape along the bottom because it wouldn't be good if the gift fell out through the bottom!!!
I also made all my own flowers/embellishments which I was very pleased with, although that did mean that this wasn't a quick project, but hopefully will be appreciated by whoever I decide to give them to (as long as the gift fits!)
