The Step by Step

Step 1: wrap your box and secure the paper using all purpose glue.

Step 2: to the top left corner of your box, glue a bundle of lace fabric. Glue it such that it bunches, rather than laying flat.

Step 3: intertwine the plain fabric ribbon into a quarter of the lace and glue to secure.

Step 4: glue on the fabric flower to the center of the lace.

Step 5: attach the peony bud (or small faux flower of your choice) to the bottom right of the fabric flower, on top of your bunched lace.

Steps 6 & 7: attach both lace fabric flowers next to the peony bud.

Step 8: cut a piece of ruffled fabric trim and a strand of lace (of the same width as the ruffled trim) to a length that will drape off the side of your box. Our strands were approximately 12 inches in length.

Step 9: glue the ruffled fabric ribbon to the bottom left corner of the box, and then attach the piece of lace ribbon to it. A single point of attachment should work for both, allowing the ribbons to hang loosely.

Step 10: glue your faux blossoms to the box, starting just underneath the lace fabric flowers, working your way down creating a cascade alongside the fabric ribbon. End your cascade approximately three quarters of the way down the side of the box.

Step 11: stamp your tag and attach with glue to your box, tucking underneath your lace flowers and cascading blossoms.
