Paper Crafting Ideas Gift Box

The Bowdabra Blog will be featuring paper crafting ideas, all week long. When the snow is coming down, the temperature is falling; I also get so much comfort and joy from crafting. I often sit down with my tea and spend hours crafting in my warm and cozy craft room. Recently, I made a gift box using scrapbook paper and a recycled cylinder tea box. I hope you enjoy it, as much as, I do!

Craft Supplies Needed:
Handmade Paper
Winter Scrapbooking Paper
5/8” Light Blue Satin Ribbon (66” in length)
¼” White Satin Ribbon (39” in length)

Embroidery Thread
Hole Puncher
Tacky Glue, Glue Stick or Hot Glue
Mini Bowdabra
Hair Bow Tool & Ruler
