The best way to give a gift is in a glitter gift box. It’s basically a gift all its own. Make these boxes to perfectly wrap gift cards, money, or beautiful jewelry.
- Silver glitter
- Kraft paper boxes
- Foam brush
- Blue gift tags
- Gem-Tac glue
Gather your tools and materials.
Use a large box top as a container and pour in the glitter.
Cut the tip off the glue.
Take one gift box top and put about a quarter-size dot of glue in the center.
Using the foam brush, spread the glue evenly over the top surface. Work fairly quickly, as the glue dries fast.
Push the glued surface into the glitter a couple times to attach glitter all over the top.
Continue adding glue to each side one at a time, just as we did on the top. When you’ve glittered all the sides, set the box aside to dry for an hour before moving on.
Use the twine and gift tags to personalize the boxes.
