Handmade (Upcycled) Gift Bag Box
It bugs me sometimes the way so many things get thrown away. I made this cute little gift package out of a cereal box. This could be made and used for any gift giving occasion baby, birthday, etc.

I chose to use some wall paper. You could use wrapping paper, wallpaper etc.
If using two designs choose a nice combo.
Cut off flaps from box and trim box down to desired size.
Measure box for size and cut paper to size. I used a paper trimmer as well as the scissors.
Glue paper to box. I used tacky glue.
Punch holes in box and feed ribbon ends through.
I added some extra frills by punching some fan boarders.
Line the boarders along the top and paste them in.
I stamped the tissue paper with a swirl stamp in light pink ink.

I added a punched gift tag and a punched butterfly.
The best thing is it cost me NO out of pocket money because I had everything on hand. It did take a little time but it was a fun project to do with my children and we were being frugal and recycling things we had.
