Spring Flower Gift Box - Cupcake Wrappers

Who wouldn't love to receive this? I can think of a zillion things to stuff into this gift box. Earrings, bracelet, necklace, CASH, candies... The list goes on and on. All that is needed is a small circular gift box. Picked mine up for a dollar. I am sure you could recycle a container from home just as easily. I am sure Blue from Blues Clues would grab his handy dandy notebook, but me, well, I grabbed my "handy dandy" cupcake wrappers. Any color will do. The possibilities are endless. I had purple. So thats what I used. Some turned inside out because I loved the dark purple and the soft lavender together. Grabbed my other "handy dandy" item which is my glue gun and I was set.

Took some lavender scrap paper and trimmed the rim of the lid. Just in case a bit of the wrappers didn't cover. Then covered the side of the circular base. Set the base aside. Working from the outside in, I did lavender then dark purple slightly overlapping each other all the way around. Then towards the center. Easy Peasy and had beautiful results. Happy Sunday Ya'll!
