Message Gift Box Create & Laugh
By Debbie Stamp Delights

Wrap any size box with Washai paper and white glue.  Stamp Delights has Washai paper in
many designs and colors, it is very forgiving and easy to work with, perfect for projects like this.

Tie a knot in the ribbon leaving a loop for the handle.  
Poke a hole in the top of the box and slide the ribbon through, then slide a bead over that to hold it in place.  You may want to place a tiny drop of glue under the bead to secure it. 

Slide beads onto the ribbon under the lid, leaving room for your stamped letters in between each bead.  Play with the spacing then glue  or "Pop-Dot" the letters onto the ribbon.

Finish with a message in the bottom of the box.  These could be made for any occasion, Christmas, Birthday and in any color.  Give them just as they are or include a gift inside.  The box sits pretty on the edge of a shelf with the lid on but the ribbon hanging out, down from the side.  This could really could put a boost in someones day.

Finish the edge of the cut ribbon with clear fingernail polish to keep it from fraying.  Give the letters a little color with pens, Prisma Pencils (Are wax based and won't  fade,) and don't forget the glitter glue!  Smile
