Simple and sweet! In this DIY article we’ll show you how, with even minimum materials, you can still get that creative look if you use just a little bit of imagination! So–here we demonstrate how with only one box and a bit of ribbon you can make some stunning ribbon boxes that are perfect for wedding favours or table decoration. The possibilities are endless!
Step 1: wrap your box vertically, down the middle, with your lightest shade of pink ribbon. Finish wrap up on the bottom of the box for a seamless finish on top.
Step 2: loop your darkest ribbon twice. Keep the size in proportion to your box.
Step 3: form your ‘in between’ shade of ribbon into a simple bow. Keep size in proportion to your looped ribbon and your box.
Step 4: layer your two ribbon formations, dark loop on bottom, lighter bow on top, and tie together with your lightest shade of pink ribbon.
Step 5: glue the bow to your box, about a quarter of the way down from the top.

What you’ll need:
Step 1: overlay your white ribbon onto your wider yellow ribbon and wrap both vertically around your box, about a quarter in from the left side. Finish wrap up on the bottom of the box for a seamless finish on top.
Step 2: cut approximately 4 strips of your wide yellow ribbon, about 8 inches in length, and then use your crinkle cut scissors to cut each strip into two.
Step 3: finish off the strips you just cut with crinkle cut ends.
Step 4: bend your crinkle cut ribbons over and arrange them into a bouquet like shape. Make sure to alternate the direction the crinkle cuts face.
Step 5: tie off your bouquet with the white ribbon, just slightly above the middle point.
Step 6: glue your bouquet to your box at an angle, pointing slightly downward to the bottom left corner of your box.
