It’s like they always say, a gift is only as good as the box it comes in… okay maybe that’s not true, but a pretty box will always help! These DIY fresh flower gift boxes knock out three Mother’s Day birds with one stone: flowers, handmade, and chocolate. This is also assuming that your Mom is as addicted to chocolate as mine is (now you know where the sugar part of Sugar & Cloth comes from).

Side note: this is the first project we shot in the new studio. It took a few minutes to get used to from having graduated from my living room coffee table, but I’m loving it!

Materials:

  • Florals of your choice
  • Floral sheers
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Spray paint (optional to create the ombre box)
  • Floral tube (optional for preserving the flowers)

This project is really as simple as gluing your favorite flowers to the top of a gift box. All you have to do is trim the stems down to just below the bulb and glue in place.

For those of you that have a hard time seeing fresh flowers go without water, you can make them last by using floral tubes to create a mini bouquet and a dab of hot glue to keep them in place instead of gluing straight to the box.

To create the ombre look, I used spray paint in Ballet Slipper to quickly spray a few coats at the bottom, lifting up to the top of the box and let it dry.

We also took it upon ourselves to use this project as a good excuse to see how many different messages we could find inside all of the chocolate wrappers. Fifteen minutes and one sugar high later we determined there were five :)
