How To Decoupage Gift Boxes
I have been hoarding gift boxes every time someone gives me a gift. I thought it be fun to decoupage them with chinoiserie paper.
Step 1: Gather all the boxes and chinoiserie paper.If you have any gift boxes such as jewelry, or any old boxes that would be perfect to decoupage.
Measure each box and cut the Chinoiserie paper according to the measurement. Add a thin layer of découpage glue.
After you apply the glue let the boxes dry for 24 hours before using them. If you use them before they dry you could tear the paper and you would have to start from scratch. You can fill the boxes with shredded color paper or cotton filler.
When the boxes are all dry you can put them together. Now you have a great box all wrapped up and they can be used for rings, necklaces or soap. You can even tie a pretty ribbon around them.
