I love the way that ribbons and bows look on jewelry boxes but Im rather a fumble fingers when it comes to tying a bow, especially after a sale when Im so excited to see one of my creations go to a new home!
I decided to come up with a way I could wrap a box with a handcrafted (of course!) decoration that would tie in my shop colors and make it easy on me.
While browsing through a local fabric warehouse, I came upon baby blue stretch lace….hmmm…. so pretty and the right color! I decided to get some to experiment with, when I went to check out and found that the lace was only 10 cents a yard…I bought it ALL…
I use the stretch lace in 2 lengths (one for large necklace boxes and bracelet boxes and one for ring and long thin boxes), I staple the ends to a small round piece of cardstock (use a paper punch), cut a strip of crepe paper and form into a medallion shape, glue to the top of the cardstock, a dot of glue in the center and glass glitter in silver finish off the medallion.
I made over 100 of these in an evening sitting in front of the tv, working like and assembly line.
I wrap the jewelry item in tissue, lay it in a box then slip one of these wraps over the box.
I use them both in my brick & mortar shop and when I ship from the sites I sell from online.
Its different and special….I hope you get some inspiration from this to make your own unique box wrap!
Your creative skills never cease to amaze me, keep up the inspirational work!
Gorgeous Way to Decorate a Jewelry Gift Box
Lovely colors, beautiful idea.
The fact that it’s handcrafted enhances what’s inside!
Thanks so much for sharing this useful and attraction solution, Brenda.
What a great idea! I will try it, and experiment with other ideas similar.
Thanks for the inspiration!
Beautiful Box and Ideas
This is really beautiful ideas. The boxes(cardboard or cotton filled boxes are cheap) and the ribbon is also cheap. But the presentation making the packaging like a high end store. Lovely ideas.
I have a question about shipping using the box. Are you shipping out like that or are you using a different box?

Such a simple design and awesome without a great deal of expense. The wrap does look quite nice.
Thanks for sharing the idea.
thank you for sharing!
This is beautiful, thank you for sharing. I usually just tie a ribbon around the box but this can be so much more personalized, and it’s re-usable, which makes it nice and green!
