Upcycling: DIY Gift Boxes | Jessica Fabiano

Hey everybody. It’s Jessica Fabiano with you today. I hope you’re doing well. Christmas is going to be here faster than we expect – and the days can get very busy. If you’re like me, having thought of all the presents and little goodies, but then realize last minute that you forgot to buy little boxes too…well, for those I have an idea: Upcycle some of your packages that you have at home! So much fun.



I used some old little boxes that I just wrapped up with the gorgeous paper from the Hip Kit Club November Kits.

Crate Paper has released their beautiful Snow&Cocoa line that’s full of mint green and pink and whimsical designs;  I love it!


First I painted my little boxes white; they came with an ugly print so I recommend doing that. Wait until it’s completely dry. Another advice: be careful using double sided tape! For some reason, my tape came off and I tore down all my white layers 🙁 that was annoying.

I added two gorgeous PL cards from the December Documented Kit ; Kim Watson designed them and I can’t believe how perfect they are. The puffy stickers from the  November Embellishment Kit  were added to the cards to bring in some more interest. Look at the sequins I used to make them the Christmas tree ornaments!



I hope you’ve had some fun joining me today!


xoxo, Jessy
