Starting with the box top, tissue paper and trusty strong glue stick I measured approxiamately the size of tissue paper I needed to cover the box top and down into the sides of the top of the box. I glued the top down first, and than carefully worked out any creases and went along the opposite sides next. I cut the edges as needed and kind of used upholstering style techniques with a mix of gift wrapping to complete the top and bottoms of the box.
This shows the box with all of the tissue attached to both the top and bottom portions of the box. Note that if you attach the tissue paper neatly down into the sides it really gives the box a clean and neat look. Shown here with the pendant Ann had chosen to purchase.
The next thing I did was to measure the ribbons. I attached the black vintage ribbon onto the tan colored ribbon with the glue stick and than attached them both with the glue stick directly to the top portion of the box while centering it. I also glued the edges down inside the box for a tidy look.
