How To Make A Decorative Box

Monday, March 11, 2013

If there's one thing I love, it's stuff that stores stuff. I've always been a sucker for pretty packaging and beautiful boxes. So being a crafty sort of person, I thought why not make my own! So today I'm sharing a decorative box tutorial... A powder box to be precise, since I plan on keeping my homemade shimmering body dust in it, along with my vintage style powder puff (from my previous post).

Before we get started remember there are tons of different ways to make decorative boxes. I'll be sharing some ideas but the best part is designing and decorating your box, your way! Choose the colors and prints you like, have fun with it and make it your own! If you're giving it as a gift, find out their favorite colors and make them a personalized one-of-a-kind gift box they'll love!
