How to: decorate a box in less than 10 minutes


Enjoy-the-little-things-box

This is one of the speediest boxes I've ever decorated. It took less than 10 minutes. Seriously.


I started with this Kopi Luwak box [yes..the world's most expensive coffee]...It had a beautiful diecut swirl pattern on the velvet cover.


Of course it was important to cover the brand in case the recipient of the box got way too excited and thought that I was giving them a pricey gift ...*LOL* [The coffee never stood a chance with my coffeeholic parents around...*winks*]. So I added a premade chipboard embellishment.


Then I measured and cut patterned paper for the sides of the box and ran the strips through the Xyron 3" Sticker Maker.


These pieces were then adhered to the edges of the box.


Then added more chipboard elements to the cover up the printed text.



Here it is. All done in under 10 minutes. Now to fill it up with some sweet treats...*winks*
