The bboxes I used were bought from amazon for aboit fifteen bucks. They are kraft paper boxes and came in a set of three. I used the biggest and the smallest. First I painted them white and then cut my holes. You will need to cut a slit In the lid of the little box, a large-ish hole in the bottom of the small box. You will also need to cut a hole in the lid of the large bbox. Just make sure that the holes aren’t too big or our smaller box will fall through.
I used a simple acrylic paint from the craft store. Do two coats for opacity.
I purchased wide white ribbon by the yard from Michael’s. I got three yards. You might be okay with two but iI wanted to be on the safe side. The gold ribbon was sold in a regular five yard roll. The ribbon and paint was about ten dollars.
To wrap the ribbon around the box,I hot glued one end on the back. Then i put two dots of glue right on the next corner of the box, pulled the ribbon taunt and pressed it into the glue. Then I did the same for the next two corners and glued it to the back.
I did this with both boxes and then repeated it for the gold ribbon.
The flower is a Real Touch Flower. It was more expensive than the silk but it just looked so much better. I think it was seven dollars. I cut off the stem and extra leaves and hot glued it to the front.
I think the whole project was thirty dollars.
