What you’ll need

  • Assorted Paper Mache gift boxes
  • Burlap
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Faux floristry and leaves
  • Twine
  • Wooden flourishes
  • Black fine liner
  • Pencil
  • Scissors


Decide on which box size you need/want for your gift.

Cut the burlap to desired thickness and glue on the inside of box lid with the hot glue gun. This way it is easy to open the box without ruining the look of it.

Choose what words you would like to put on your presents and use a pencil to lightly draw that word onto the wooden flourish. Then draw over that word with black fine liner to make it stand out.

Pull apart the faux floristry and eucalyptus plants and create small little bouquets to put on top of your presents. Use a small amount of the hot glue to glue the stems together or tie together with twine.

Now you can decorate your different gift boxes with combinations of all the different elements you have created.
