Beautiful giftwrapping: gift box with glitter and glamor

Project from Cintia -

Give with the eye! You’ve probably already experienced it yourself: the joy of gift-giving increases on both sides when the gift is beautifully, individually or with recognizable attention to detail wrapped.

You have everything you need? Then get started!

Step 1

Cover the entire shoe box – including the base – with the “Glitter anthracite” foil and smooth the foil using a squeegee.

Step 2

Now measure the width of the shoe box lid.

Step 3

Then transfer the dimensions plus 5 cm to the right, 5 cm to the left and with a height of 5 cm onto the rear side of the “Glitter silver” foil.

Step 4

Use a cutter to cut the “Glitter silver” foil along the ruler.

Step 5

Now remove the backing paper 5 cm to the right and 5 cm to the left of the “Glitter silver” foil. Then cut off the detached backing paper using scissors.

Step 6

Now place the foil strip on the lid of the shoe box and press down firmly on the right and left outer sides.

Step 7

Finally, insert a name tag or fir branches into the compartment you have created.

Step 8

Repeat everything from step 3 with the “Glitter gray” foil.

You’re done!
