Hello everyone! So I didn't think I would be doing yet another blog about these box gifts, but I finally got the supplies I needed to finish them up and since you all have been along for the journey, I figured I would show you the finish line!
When I last left you, I had a few things ready for the final 8 boxes. I had some mini candles made for 4 boxes, but I had not yet decided the theme of those boxes. I decided to give those a spa night theme and purchased some bath soak and soap to finish those off. I put the soak in a small recycled jar that I fancied up with some stickers.
I boxed the candle, soak and soap up, made a little label, tied some yarn around the box and these spa night boxes were done!
So for the tea boxes, I had some coasters that I had made and some honey sticks, but that was all. Obviously I knew that there would be some tea bags in there, but wanted a little art piece to go into these as well. I found these tiny frames at the Dollar Tree which were the perfect size.
I then picked out some paper which matched the speckled effect I went for on the coasters. Using some black letter stickers, I made some cute tea related phrases on the paper to put into the frames.
The frames seemed a little plain and after I spoke with my creative consultant (my husband) we thought that some pom-pom yarn I had would be a good touch. Using hot glue, I attached the yarn to the front and wrapped it around to the back. I positioned the yarn so that the little pom-poms were on opposite sides of the frame.
I then used some of the same yarn to wrap up the honey stick and tea bags for each box. I printed out some labels as well and mounted them on the same paper I used for the frames. I used some purple yarn to wrap up the boxes once everything was inside.
And they were FINALLY done! I have loved making these box gifts, but I'm happy to be done with them for now!
If you're wondering why one of each is unwrapped, that is so I can open it up at craft fairs and show people exactly what is inside. I'm really proud of all of the box gifts I've made and am really excited to see what people think of them at craft fairs. What do you think of the final 8 boxes? Let me know in the comments below!
