Potpourri Boxes

These gift boxes can be used for any holiday or occasion. They are very simple to make and add elegance to any gift.

The Christmas boxes can also be used as tree decorations. All you need to do is add a hanger.

Make them any color you like. Gold and silver really add an elegance to the boxes. If they are for a gift you can make them the favorite color or colors of the person that you are giving them to.

Supplies Needed To Make These Potpourri Boxes

  • Small fiber boxes available at craft stores.
  • Acrylic paints
  • Paint brushes
  • Ribbon of your choice.
  • Hot glue gun or craft glue.

Paint the box the color of your choice. Try to make it a color that compliments the ribbon. Let dry completely.

Cut the ribbon the size that you need for the bottom. The ends should extend over the ends into the box. Glue one end down and then wrap it under the box and up the other side and glue it down on the inside.

Do the same with the top and be sure that the ribbon lines up with the bottom ribbon. Make a bow for the top and glue in place. You can add a flower on top to make it really special.

Fill the box with potpourri or a small gift. These potpourri boxes look really cute on a Christmas tree. You can make them any color you want to fit any occasion and they make great gifts. You can get the paper boxes in any size. Bigger ones look great to for a very special present.

Crafts like this are so easy and inexpensive to make and really add to the gift inside. They are great for putting poutpourri inside that you have made and then giving as a gift.
