Need a super cute gift box on the cheap? This project is so easy. All you need is a box, scrapbook paper or wrapping paper and Mod Podge.
I have all these terrific cardboard boxes around from my monthly beauty box subscription to Birchbox. These boxes are so cool…I just hate to toss them.
I was in need of some gift boxes recently and decided to break out the Mod Podge. I have to say, I was really pleased with the result.
In no time I had some super cute gift boxes!
What You Need:
Scrapbook Paper or Wrapping Paper
First you will want to cut the paper to fit the box.
I did just the top of 3 boxes. I did both the tops and the sides of the 4th box.
You want to be pretty precise with your cuts, so make sure you check the fit before you move on to the next step.
Next, add a coat of Mod Podge to the box. If you are doing the sides, I would do those first.
Apply the paper. Press down quickly and gently. You will want to avoid air pockets and bubbles.
Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the outside of the paper.
Allow to dry. I only did one top coat.
There you have it…and adorable upcycled box perfect for gift giving.
Just a tip….I found scrapbook paper is easier to use than wrapping paper.
