Pretty Presentation: Roses, Burlap & Bows

Hey guys! Today I have a fun way to really dress up those plain chipboard boxes and gift boxes. I purchased this one at Michael's and used some of the items from Monday Mood Board #11. Chances are, if you need a gift, you'll need a card too. And why not have it match?

Here's what you'll need: raffia ribbon; ribbon roses/flowers; wired ribbon; burlap; Die cut tag (Wplus9 Timeless Tags 2); twine; wooden veneer hearts; glue gun' scissors

Instructions:
  1. Trim a narrow and long length from your burlap (enough to tie a bow). Fray the edges by pulling out some of the fibers from the edges and then tie in a bow.
  2. Tie a bow from the raffia and wired ribbon. Starting with the biggest/thickest bow, add a small dab of hot glue to the center and layer the next smallest bow on top. Repeat with remaining bows and finish with the flower on top.
  3. Once your bow is assembled you can add a large safety pin to the back to pin it to a gift, or hot glue a clothes pin to the back.
  4. Glue the wooden heart to the center of the tag, thread with twine and tie around the bow.
