Aren't they great?
First, I ordered book boxes from Really Good Stuff. I've heard that some people get these for cheaper from Ikea, but I'm not that lucky.
Next, I used scrapbook scissors to cut decorative paper to size. I used decorative scissors because they are more forgiving with someone with me. Why? Because I can't cut a straight line to save my life!
I then stapled the two papers on to the box.
In case you couldn't guess, there HAS to be polka dots!
Then I used a stencil set to trace the gift tags and letters, cut out the tags, and attached them with a dot of hot glue. This took awhile.
I chose to use stencils because the placement of the letters was too hard to do on the computer to fit the shape of the tags. Plus, I love to scrapbook, and this was a good excuse.
Are there any DIY projects that you've tackled lately?
