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.
