GLOURIOUS GIFT BOXES
For Tonia's present I had found an extra chunky pink pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings that was the easy part but I just couldn't find the right box to put them in. When I was at Robert's craft store I found this brown scalloped chipboard box, with a few changes I knew it would work perfect for her fabulous new pearls. I started out by painting the inside pink, then I painted the top and bottom dark brown. (I left the sides of the box the original cardboard brown) After the paint dried it was time for MP&G and a little scrapbook paper. I needed a little more then just solid glitter for this project so I covered the lid top and sides with scrapbook paper. I did add a solid ring of glitter along the edge of the lid. Now as you can see, tissue paper would have worked just fine to sit those great pearls on, but I had to think of something a little Over The Tipsy Top instead, and pink cotton candy was the first thing to come to mind! I topped it all off with tulle, ribbon and a glittered chipboard "T" outline. I hope this sounds easy and fun to do because it truly was, so the next time you have a gift to give make the outside just as fabulous as what's inside. These chipboard boxes are at all craft stores, they come in a variety of sizes and shapes!
Happy Gift Giving!!!!
Love, The Tipsy Girls
