My favorite part of giving a gift is wrapping it up. Tiny kraft boxes are perfect for decorating and tucking itsy bitty gifts inside, like sweet treats or even just a loving sentiment.
What you need for your Valentine box.
1 round kraft type box, ruffled crepe paper garland, vintage netting, millinery leaf and flowers, ribbons, small tea stained dove (Michaels), German glass glitter, paint, sand paper, glue, needle and thread.
Paint your box your desired color. I used off white milk paint. I love the flat chalkiness finish it has. If you dry it with heat it will crackle. It is wonderful for giving your project a vintage look. After the paint has dried lightly sand it. I added a Bri-wax to give it a antiqued finish.
With a needle and thread gather the ruffled crepe paper garland (you can find it here) making somewhat of a collar that will fit the lid of your box. Glue in place.
Glue down your vintage netting ( I got mine from an old hat. Add pretty ribbons. I purchase my ribbons here.
Glue your glittered dove in the center of your box. Add your millinery leaf and flowers and any other pretties you would like.
Happy Artful Thursday!
