Admittedly, the weather outside is a poor reflection of spring. For us DIY-ers, though, that’s not enough to keep us from enjoying spring crafts. What better way to kick-off the season of rebirth and fresh beginnings than by spring cleaning? You don’t have to drown your dumpster in all of your junk. Instead, put it to use with some simple spring crafts. In this DIY gift box, you’ll find a project that you’ll love adding to your paper craft ideas. Read on to find out how to make DIY gift boxes that take care of your mess in a fun and crafty way.
DIY Gift Boxes
In case you’ve forgotten already, it’s spring! You know what that means? It means that it’s time to go through your craft closet and get cleaning. Assuming you’re like most crafters and hoard a lot of everyday materials, you have a lot of empty matchboxes around the house. Face it: you don’t need them. You can, however, revamp and pay them forward to someone else with these enchanting DIY gift boxes.
To complete these springy DIY gift boxes, makes sure you have your matchboxes and some patterned paper. These are your key players in this spring craft. Your creativity should step in when it comes to decorating these divine containers. Use whatever collage materials you have to gussy-up your matchboxes. If you’re willing to share, get the kids involved too! There’s nothing better than spring crafts for kids that eventually clean up the house.
This project is nothing short of a Cinderella story, transforming the ragtag items lying around into bonnie spring gift boxes.
