My Creative Space
Today I worked with my giftboxes. I gave them a finishing touch by adding those lovely little vintage scraps on them. They are a little bit kitsch but oh, so sweet and compliment my girly jewelry pieces nicely, I think. We used to collect these scraps as kids so I have some emotional connections to them too. Next time I visit my parents I hope to find those original scrap books of mine, real treasures.
Each gift box is now unique, that's the greatest thing of all. I will just add a little ribbon and voilá! I hope my project inspires you to embellish your gift boxes in a beautiful way. There are so many possibilities, choose the one that suits your style the best. Use scraps, die cut figures, pieces from an old news paper or a magazine etc. You name it!
