How to Make Personalized Gift Box

Everyone loves to receive gifts -- kids, teens, adults. and yes, even the aged.

Wrapping a gift is an art. The easiest and most convenient way to do it, however, is to simply buy ready-made, same designed bags and boxes that are available almost anywhere.

But how about setting aside some minutes in making a personalized box or bags to place your gifts in? Not only will the receiver appreciate it because of the time and effort you put in making it; it will also enhance your creativeness.

For a starter, try this simple yet love-filled creation.

Materials:

  • Flip-top-box (big enough to hold your surprises)

  • Color papers

  • Pictures of receiver's favorite items from old newspapers

  • 1/2 x 4 in. color ribbon

  • Fancy ribbon for bow

  • Scissors

  • Construction paper for the card

  • Glue, tape, color pens or pencils

  • Chocolates, candies, cute novelty items, or anything that serves as your gift.


Procedure:

  1. Wrap your box with color paper.

  2. Decorate box with pictures.

  3. Cut out hearts. Glue one to top end of 1/2 x 4 in. ribbon. Write "pull string, please" on the heart.

  4. Tape your surprises -- chocolates, candies, etc - on ribbon with hearts as background.

  5. Write your Valentine message on a personally made card from a construction paper. Glue card to bottom end of ribbon. Wait for glue to dry.

  6. Put your string of surprises inside the box, card first.

  7. Tape glued heart-on-string to flip-top of box. Close the box.

  8. Tie box with fancy bow.
