I picked up this box for about $2. I didn't really care for the design, so I grabbed a piece of pattern paper, trimmer and my bottle of the Best Glue Ever. I cut squares to fit each side, then used the Best Glue Ever to adhere it to the box.
To cover the ends, I used some Tim Holtz tissue tape. I love the designs on this tape, but not that it isn't the stickiest and will sometimes peel off my projects. So, I just added a thin line of the Best Glue Ever to each edge before placing the tissue tape.
And here's the box. This is a quick way to dress up a display for flowers, add candy or add a present.
Now, I wanted to add an extra layer to this box. Something whimsical. So I used the Best Glue Ever to make thick lines all around the box and I let them dry until tacky.
Once they were dry, I added candy canes. Because the plastic wrapper is well, plastic, you won't get a perfect long-lasting hold. But that isn't necessary as I want to easily remove the candy canes so we can eat them!
It will hold them to box so you can add a decorative ribbon. The glue and the ribbon together will keep the candy canes in place, or allow a couple to be sneaked out of your arrangement if you need a quick snack...
