When I give a gift to someone, I like to have the wrapping do double duty. If it’s a larger gift, I always try to use a fabric shopping bag instead of a paper one that people will eventually throw out. (Walmart has some really pretty ones for only 88 cents in their accessories section) When I give a smaller gift, I try to make sure that the packaging is as useful as the gift. That’s why I decorate so many small wooden boxes. Call it an Altered Box or a Shabby Chic Box, it’s just something that I like to decorate.
Here’s my latest Shabby Chic Gift Box that will be perfect for a piece of jewelry.
