DIY: Last Minute Gift Wrapped Mini Candy Box

Hello Everyone!

The Xyron Hashtag Challenge is in full swing on Instagram!

However, if you are late to the Xyron hashtag party, that is ok! To get you caught up on all things Instagram, Xyron is having its first ever Hashtag Challenge. If you are unfamiliar with a Hashtag Challenge, its basically where a ‘’challenge’’ is announced each week, and you guys use the #HOLLYJOLLYXYRON to share your projects that go with that challenge Then, once the challenge week is up, the Xyron Design Team will pick a winner of the challenge and that person will be featured on all of our Instagram pages AND will win a Xyron Creative Station!

So, to get you inspired to make your own projects for the challenges, the Xyron Design Team members are sharing their own project for each challenge.

This week’s hashtag challenge is all about quick gifts!

When making my own quick gift for this challenge, I wanted to create something that involved only a few supplies and that could be given to those individuals like your co-workers or mailman. In this case, I came up with a candy box that is wrapped like a normal gift, but of course is miniature!

So, if you want to learn how to make your own Last Minute Gift Wrapped Mini Candy Box, keep reading below!

Small Paper Mache Box
Wrapping Paper
Washi Tape
Tissue Paper (optional / not pictured)
Hot Glue Gun + Glue Sticks (not pictured)

Step 1: Paint the inside of your box and lid. Then set them aside to dry. 

Step 2: Grab your wrapping paper and Xyron Tape Runner. Then wrap the lid and body of the box like you normally would, but use the Xyron Tape Runner to attach the wrapping paper to the paper mache box. 

Step 3: Finally, grab your washi tape and apply strips to create the look of a wrapped gift. Then create a small bow out of the washi tape and hot glue it to the top of your box.

Once you are happy with how your box looks, you are ready to fill it up with some tissue paper and candy!

I love how this project turned out! I think anyone would be happy to receive a mini gift with there favorite candy inside.

For my gift box, I chose to put 3 Lindt Lindor Chocolates inside (which fit perfectly). If you go this route, you can easily get a few gifts out of one bag of Lindt Lindor Chocolate.

As always, to follow along with all the Xyron fun, don't forget to like them on Facebook and to follow their Pinterest page for more project inspiration.
