Small Square Box

New Year's Gift

Difficulty – Medium

Materials

  • Reflective silver wrapping paper
  • 1 inch silver mesh wired ribbon with silver edges
  • Thin silver wired ribbon

Instructions

    1. Wrap a box in silver paper.
    2. Wrap the thin silver ribbon 3 times continuously around the box and tie ends together on the middle string, leaving a few inches for tails. Don’t worry if the ribbon crosses on the bottom of the box.
    3. Cut a piece of the silver sheer ribbon long enough to wrap around the box three and a half times.
      Note: Ribbon measurements for bows are approximate. The lengths may have to be adjusted slightly based on the size of the box used.
    4. Centering the ribbon on the bottom of the box, bring the both sides of the ribbon to the center top of the box and tie in a knot.
    5. Using the ends, tie a bow the same way shoelaces are tied. Adjust the loops so they are even with each other.
    6. Trim the ends to matching lengths, cutting them into a V shape.
    7. To make the bow, hold the ribbon about 3 inches from the end with your thumb and form about a 2 inch loop in length. Securing the loop with your thumb, form another loop below the first loop. Continue this motion, holding each new loop with your thumb, until you have 8 loops on each side.
    8. Tie the bow to the package using the ribbon tails. Separate the loops from each other, fluff the bow and trim the tails to matching lengths.

Difficulty – Medium
This design is best suited for a square box

Materials

  • Reflective silver wrapping paper
  • 1 inch silver mesh wired ribbon with silver edges
  • Thin silver wired ribbon
  • 1 small silver mirrored ball

Instructions

  1. Wrap a box in silver paper.
  2. Wrap the thin silver ribbon 3 times continuously around the box and tie ends together on the middle string, leaving a few inches for tails. Don’t worry if the ribbon crosses on the bottom of the box.
  3. Cut a piece of the silver sheer ribbon long enough to wrap around the box four times plus 20 inches.
    Note: Ribbon measurements for bows are approximate. The lengths may have to be adjusted slightly based on the size of the box used.
  4. Centering the ribbon on the bottom of the box, bring the both sides of the ribbon to the center top of the box and tie in a knot.
  5. Using the ends, tie a bow on one side of the box the same way shoelaces are tied. Adjust the loops so they are even with each other.
  6. With the remaining length of the ends, tie another bow on the opposite side of the box to create a 4 loop bow, adjusting all loops so they are even with each other and have a open form.
  7. Trim the ends to matching lengths, cutting them into a V and bending them to form a nice shape. Keep the tails long so they will flow over the side of the box.
  8. To make the bow, hold the ribbon about 5 inches from the end with your thumb and form about a 2 inch loop in length. Securing the loop with your thumb, form another loop below the first loop. Continue this motion, holding each new loop with your thumb, until you have 8 loops on each side.
  9. Tie the bow to the package using the ribbon tails. Separate the loops from each other, fluff the bow and trim the tails to matching lengths.
