Decorative gift box tower

It's day 10 of #12daysofchristmascrafts! I have another craft inspired by yet another of my favorite You tubers. Her channel is Giftbasketappeal. Check out tutorials on gift baskets, paper crafts, modpodge crafts, wreaths, and much more! She is amazing. And if you want to learn how to make a bow with ribbon, she has the simplest tutorials ever!. 

Lets' get to the project! 


  • 3 square gift boxes of varying sizes (less than $1 each on clearance)
  • coordinating ribbon (I used 3 colors)
  • floral picks/ embellishments
  • hot glue
  • double sided tape

Step 1: Apply double sided tape to the bottom of each smaller box, and place on top of the next size box creating a tower. 

- This is so the boxes won't move when attaching the ribbon around them.

Step 2: Measure ribbon to fit around the box tower vertically, leaving some slack. Then attach ribbon to the top of each box using hot glue. Do this to each side of the tower.

- This gives a cleaner look than just having the ribbon loose around the boxes.

Step 3: Using ribbon, create a bow( I made 2) and attach to the top of the box tower. 

*The steps after this are optional, but I like the effect of the fullness with more embellishments.

Step 4: Glue a faux flower on top of the bow.

Step 5: Attach berry picks(using hot glue) on each side of the bow, facing the bows center.

Step 6: Attach greenery picks on either side of the berry pick. 

And there it is! This will be sitting on one of the side tables in my living room. It's the perfect added touch!

I hope you're finding some inspiration to do some Christmas crafting of your own! If you have, tag me on Instagram @simplymindy3 and use #12daysofchristmascrafts! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
