I spotted this idea in Martha Stewart’s endlessly inspiring archive of craft projects, and though the actual project on the site is for the tub teas (mmm … I bet that they smell good), I gravitated toward the packaging. It’s incredible how a simple chipwood craft box can create such a sophisticated, modern packaging look. Dress the boxes up with lovely labels, wrap a silk ribbon around the side of the lid, and you’re good to go!
These boxes would also look gorgeous tied with a colorful silk ribbon bow, and they’d be the perfect containers for small cookies, caramels, or other foodie gifts, too. I’ve spotted similar boxes at my local craft stores, and you can purchase them in sets, as well.
