Creative How-to: Cut pattern paper the same size as the wrong of card. Measure 5 rows for the ribbon so that the largest is at the bottom and the smallest is at the top. Leave room at the top and bottom for the star and sentiment. Punch holes at the end of the measure lines and string the ribbon through the holes. Secure the ribbon edges to the back of the card with tape. Adhere the paper with the ribbon tree to the front of the card. Complete the card by adding the sentiment and a star.
Fancy Schmancy Gift Box
Pin this gift box idea to Pinterest:
Supplies: Little Yellow Bicycle Once Upon a Christmas collection: OC-106 Snowflake Medallion/Red Houndstooth, OC-102 Poinsettia Quilt/Multi Starlight, OC-132 Tags & String, May Arts ribbon.
How to: Trim inside pattern paper so that there is a 1 - 1 1/2" space of the box showing around each edge. Set aside. Trim paper strips to 2x12 and then adhere them to the box so that they cover the outer edges of the box. Adhere the pre-cut inner pattern paper over the paper edges exactly in the center. Add pom-pom trim around the edge of the inside paper to cover the seam. Add smaller velvet trip over the pom poms. Tie the green ribbon around the package, adding the tag and silver leaves immediately before tying. Your shirt box goes from drab to fab!
