Give a gift from the art – Make a gift box
Hand decorated gift boxes
These great little craft boxes are brilliant for small gifts. Decorate with (almost) any kind of paint and cover with pom poms, sequins, beads ribbons and googly eyes! Or simply get busy with a set of magic markers. Makes a small gift really special – and the box itself is something to keep.
You will need:
- Plain gift box (We have loads on offer in our Queen Street Store)
- Paint (Click here)
- Paint brush (Click here)
- Glitter pen (Click here)
- Glue (Click here)
- Other creative decorations (We have a wide selection of ribbon and other fancy stuff in our Queen Street Store)
Take your plain gift box or boxes.
Paint your box with a coloured paint of your choosing, we recommend acrylic paint as it dries nice and fast and provides a nice satin finish
Once your paint has dried, add some sparkle to your gift box with the glitter pen.
Once the glitter is dry, why not personalise the box with your own decoration? Try adding ribbons, stickers and anything else you can think of.
Enjoy your box, place your gift inside and give it to your recipient, we used googly eyes, ribbon and wee bobbles on ours!
