May Arts/Scrapbook Adhesives Blog Hop - Easy Gift Boxes



It's the final day of the May Arts/Scrapbook Adhesives Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from Christina Colon's blog.  I have the full list at the end of this post in case you missed someone this week.

I love pretty packages!  Maybe that's why I love May Arts Ribbon so much!  Tying even the humblest gift in a beautiful ribbon makes it extra special.

I used Scrapbook Adhesives Permanent E-Z Runner to assemble these pretty little boxes made from a single sheet of cardstock each.  Some gorgeous May Arts sparkly ribbons were all that was necessary to make these little boxes festive.   (just click the photo to see a close up)


I used plain cardstock to assemble this box then made it sparkle with some gorgeous Holiday Glitzy Glitter paper by DCWV.   I just adore that May Arts Silver Metallic Ribbon!  It's so soft and makes awesome bows.

You can find the template for the boxes here.  No cutting machines required!  :-)  Just print and cut.  Easy,peasy and May Arts ribbon beautiful!

Oh wow what a wonderful way to make these boxes beautiful by using these gorgeous ribbons. They are gifts in themselves no matter what is inside them.
