What can I use to decorate a gift box?
Materials for decorating your cardboard box or DIY gift box
- fabric or satin ribbons – I’m always saving ribbons from gift bags and wrapping as I can’t bear to thrown them away!

How do you decorate a gift box with tissue paper?
Fold your tissue so it is slightly narrower than the box. I keep the box at the side of the tissue as a visual guide (you will then measure the correct amount). Fold under any edges to give a polished finish. Add another sheet(s) of tissue and scrunch it in to a cushion and place in the box.
How do you fill a gift box?
Tips & tricks for filling a gift box Add bunched up paper to the bottom of the box and cover it with the colorful shredded filler. This will help lift up the items so they don’t get “lost” in the box. Take edible items out of their commercial packages and wrap them up in more decorative containers.
Do you wrap presents in a gift bag?
Some people try to wrap uniquely shaped gifts to make it interesting, but if the shape of the item is odd and therefore a dead giveaway about what the gift is if wrapped, then a gift bag is the best way to go. If your gift can melt, you can keep it in the fridge up until when you are going to give it away.
How do you wrap the inside and outside of a box?
Glue and spray that first flap to the inside of your box. Then glue the bottom of the box (works better than gluing the paper), and roll the box onto the opposite long side. At this point, your entire inside and outside of the long sides will be wrapped.

Regardless of the basket you choose, you should fill the bottom with crumpled paper or another type of filler before adding the gift items. This filler provides an even, decorative base.
