Hello Pebbles Friends! Leanne here today, sharing a few ideas for dressing up those gift giving, baby shower boxes at the next party you attend. This décor will make your gift giving appear even more special from the effort you’ve added to personalise the wrapping! Who doesn’t love just that little bit extra, and the new release Night Night collection from Pebbles will simply shout WOW!
To get started with this project you will need to gather your supplies. Along with a few select pieces from Night Night, I have purchased simple kraft and white coloured boxes from the dollar store. Add some twine, ric rac and paper clips, and you are ready to start decorating.
In this tutorial I will share with you three different ways to dress up a plain box before gifting it to someone special.
Box 1 | step 1. Trim three lengths of patterned paper. Each strip is 0.5″ x 12″.
I have layered the papers with the darkest colour on top and the lightest on the bottom to create an ombre effect. Adhere with doubles sided tape.
step 2. Measure and score fold lines to fit the size of your box. These fold lines allow for a cleaner presentation.
step 3. Secure the patterned paper with twine.
step 4. To personalise the gift, use the mini alphabet punchboard from We R Memory Keepers and create the initial (if baby name is known), of the gift recipient. I’ve chosen a silver foil to complement the paper pieces from the printed cardstock shapes.
step 5. Secure the cardstock shape and the punched alpha to the twine already wrapped around the box. Box one is now complete.
Box 2 | step 1. There are so many options to help embellish your gift box in the printed cardstock shapes package however, I’ve selected the baby romper/playsuit to replicate a washing on a clothes line.
step 2. Draw a pencil line around the outside of your selected paper piece. A handy tip is to draw on the reverse side of the paper you want to have showing. Carefully fussy cut around the traced shape. The size of your box will determine the number of paper pieces you will need.
step 3. Wrap a piece of twine and colour coordinated ric rac around the outside of the box. Using mini paperclips, secure the cut out paper pieces.
step 4. Add a second cardstock shape as your sentiment. Punch a whole in it and secure to the box with the existing twine. Box 2 is now complete.
Box 3 | step 1. Have any leftover pieces of scrap paper? Here’s a great way to start using them up. Trim a stash of narrow paper strips and cut a notch from the bottom of each piece.
step 2. Punch a hole at the top of each paper strip.
step 3. Thread each paper strip onto a piece of string or twine.
step 4. Wrap the twine around the outside of the box.
step 5. Using the Grayson foil foam letters, add a sentiment or word phrase at the top of the box. Box 3 is now completed.
I hope these simple ideas help you with your next gift giving, baby shower décor event! Night Night promises to have everyone smiling with delight upon receiving it in this form. Thanks for visiting.
