From the blogger: "Upgrade your gift giving and recycle your old gift boxes with one simple craft. If you are anything like me, when you receive a gift in a box, the gift box is often too nice to just throw away. This means I collect loads of "useful" boxes that just collect dust. When a box has a logo or brand name on it, it can make it seem unsuitable to use again. An old magazine and a little bit of papercutting can solve that problem, and you can create pretty gift boxes that cost you nothing at all."

Materials List

  • Old gift box
  • Old magazine
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Paper glue


  1. Find and cut out a large flower image from your old magazine.

  2. Glue the image onto the gift box, covering any logo or brand name.

  3. Ta-da! You are ready to give a gift in a pretty gift box.
