You need:

– a sheet of brown kraft paper
– decorative ribbons – one in red and festive printed and the other in white, with lacy design.
– linen fabric

Wrap the box with brown wrapping paper. Wrap the strip of white lace once around the box and secure with double-sided tape. Next add the red ribbon, but finish it with a bow.


Now make the flower. This requires a little more work, but do not be afraid. When you see the final product and the satisfied faces of the recipients, you will quickly forget the time spent.

You will need a cotton or linen fabric in natural color, felt and a hot glue gun. Cut out from felt a circle with a diameter of about 4 cm. This circle will be used as a basis for the flower from cotton cloth. Then cut out from linen fabric five flowers. It is not necessary that they are completely symmetrical and perfect.


Take the first flower, fold it in half, apply a drop of hot glue and fold again. Glue the four triangles on the felt circle that serves as a base for the flower as shown in the picture. Glue the last folded flower in the middle. Unfold a bit the fabric pieces to give your flower a volume.
