Step 1: Supplies
2 Sided tape.
2 Old Calendar pages with pictures or a magazine.
String or use a tea bag for the string.
White out or paint
Toilet paper optional
Magnetic business card for closure; button or thumb tack (pictured)
Small metal lid , floppy disc metal ring, washer, or something that a magnet will stick to; if using a magnet closure.
Step 2: Tools
Needle nose pliers
Hole punch optional
Step 3: Coloring Edges
Open the box.
Lay out the pages and coordinate.
See where you need to color the page so letters and unwanted areas are not going to show.
Color in those areas using the markers or White out.
Step 4: Taping Pages
Starting with the bottom is best so if you make a mistake it won't be so noticeable.
Place two sided tape around the edges of the calender pages.
Glue the areas of the box so the pages will stick good.
Lay the pages over the area to paste and stick when you think it is about right.
Flip the box over and repeat this step for the front page of the box.
Step 5: Adding Front Embellishment/Closure
You can use 2 magnets or one magnet and a metal object.
Make 2 circles larger than the metal lid.
Tape the metal to one circle.
Place the metal lid inbetween the two circles.
Fold it in half.
Glue the center of the front flap.
Slip the front flap between the folds of the metal lid.
Glue the magnet to the front of the box.
You can glue a round magnet on the front top flap for a button and write a letter on it.
Remove the point of the tack with the needle nose pliers.
Glue the tack to the top front flap to make it look like a button or closure.
Paint it or color with the marker if the color does not match
Step 6: Coloring Bubble Wrap
Color the bubble wrap with the marker.
Wrap the gift with the bubble wrap.
Place it in the box.
Close and tape the lid.
Step 7: Cutting and Folding Plastic Bag
Fold it in half. Fold it in half again. And one more time.
Wrap it around the box starting on the top side of the box first.
Turn the box over and crisscross the strip and turn the box right side up and tie the ends together.
You may make a bow or just tape it and add a separate bow to it. I will show you how.
Step 8: Gift Tag
Punch a hole in the end carefully.
Add a piece of the string so it can be attached to the plastic strip or you could just tape it.
Write a name and message on the leaves.
Take a paper clip and bend it in a heart shape using the pliers.
Tape or glue it to the leaf.
Step 9: Toilet Paper Bow
Stack them in one stack.
Color all the edges with a marker.
Make a loop from the string.
Stick a tack in the center of the squares.
Snip off the sharp point using the pliers.
Pinch the center of the stack to form a flower.
Slip the loop over the end.
Tie in a knot.
Tie the bow to the green strip.
