Holiday Gift Boxes with Punky Sprouts

Hey everyone!  Today I am sharing some cute ways to dress up your gift boxes for Christmas using Punky Sprouts embellishments.

You can use ready made boxes, ones that you create with cut files/dies, or use your brand new Gift Box Board like I did.

I love the Punky Sprouts embellishments, and used a bunch here.  The doilies are a great way to add some softness to your box, and if you aren't a fan of the slits/perforations that you get with some die cutting machines/dies, this is a great way to cover them up.

For the tall box, the trees were made using each of the three sizes of Lil Blossoms.  Each one is folded into quarters.  Before I adhered those I tied a bit of Punky Sprouts twine around the center of the box.  The tree trunks were a bit of scrap paper that I stamped using Neat & Tangled's On the Strip stamp - the woodgrain strip.

For the little box I wanted more color.  I used some more Punky Sprouts doilies, cutting one in half and then trimming off a little excess to decorate the sides of the box.  Then I sprayed some Lil' Petals with Lindy's Mist.  A little red and white twine was tied around the centers and the dried petals were adhered over top.

I just love how these turned out, and they really were so easy to do.
