Gift Presentation I: Draw-It-Yourself Gift Box


all images: chewing the cud

At ctc, we do declare that the art of presentation is in the details! With the holidays rapidly approaching, we thought it would be fun to do a series of posts about gift presentations. Sometimes, the packaging is just as important as the gift!

First up is the DIY gift box... Draw-it-yourself, that is.

Materials:
White box
Sharpie marker, crayon or pen of your choice
Ribbon if desired

Flatten white box.

Break out the sharpie and doodle on all sides.

Finish up with a ribbon of contrasting color, if you so desire.

This is so adorable! I am the Sharpie PR manager and I'm going to post this on our blog, http://blog.sharpie.com. This is EXACTLY what I've been looking for! Any idea where you could get templates? Love it!

It's up! See blog.sharpie.com. By templates, I meant anything we can "trace" onto the box - you're such a good artist, not sure if I could do as well: )
