How to embellish a plain box in under 5 minutes

To decorate a plain box, all you need is a few pieces of decorative paper, adhesive and scissors (pencil optional).

  1. First, start off with some decorative paper that you like, or think would match your box nicely.
  2. Next, Draw out (or print off) a silhouette of an image. It can be anything you like, flowers, animals, machines…
  3. Then, cut out the silhouettes from your decorative paper.
  4. Finally, arrange the cut outs however you like on the box and secure with adhesive. *hint* I personally like to add depth to projects, so I tend to secure a small spot on the cut out and curl or lightly fold some of the pieces up to give it a more 3D effect.
