I saw on Super Scrimpers recently, someone cover a sweets box with wrapping paper. But I've found something better! These boxes started life as boxes containing washing powder liquitabs.
Remove the labels (not always the easiest of jobs)
Measure the sides (including the bottom and lid if you like) out on to your favourite wrapping paper. I added an extra cm to measurements as it's better if it overlaps slightly.
Cut out the pieces...
Glue to the outside of the box. I used Mod Podge so that it would be hard wearing, and a sponge to apply it so that it covered easily.
I then covered the boxin a layer of Mod Podge to make the paper more durable and hard wearing.
