How to Up-cycle Old Gift Boxes with a Rustic or Shabby Chic Theme, complete with Beautiful Rhinestone Embellishments

Here's a Quick Step-by-step on how to up-cycle an old/ odd coloured gift box!

  1. Source your materials. Here we have a little polka dot gift box and a paper bag! The colour does not quite match the rustic theme we are after so we are simply going to wrap our box up and up-cycle it into a shabby chic rustic little number!
  2. Trim a piece off of your paper bag, big enough to wrap your gift box and it's lid.
  3. When wrapping up your gift box with it's new rustic looking paper, adhere your paper with double-sided tape. Sticking paper down to one side at a time, and ensuring there are no creases as you go.
  4. Don't forget to decorate your lid as well!
  5. Now that your box is completely wrapped, it's time to add a lil chic into the mix! Source some ribbon- this could be any colour to match your theme, or the recipients favourite colour! In this case we have gone with an ivory piece of lace ribbon to keep with our chic theme. We wrapped the lace around the lid of the box and tied a bow. If you want the bow to stay as a permanent feature you could adhere it to your box lid with double-sided tape.
  6. Final Touch! We used a glue gun to stick our Ivory pearl diamante embellishment to the centre of our bow, for a fabulously classy finish to our gift box!
How will you complete your new, up-cycled rustic little gift boxes?

We have a whole range of Beautiful Grade A diamante rhinestone embellishments and buckle ribbon sliders to add to your gift boxes. You can find all of these at:

Rustic inspired wedding stationary and gift Boxes

Here at we do love working with: hessian, lace, paper and diamante sparklies! Think countryside, barns and outdoor weddings! 

  • Our wedding invitation (also featured in our previous post), has the addition of a lovely piece of vintage backing paper (adhered with double-sided tape), a narrow piece of hessian roll, adhered to the card with glue, embellished further with a beautiful piece of lace trim threaded through one of our gorgeous Small Circle Pearl and Diamante Buckle Ribbon sliders.
  • We have got a little crafty with the use of a paper bag- to not only use as a favour (embellished with a piece of hessian roll, lace trim, jute string and a Pink Posy Diamante Heart Charm) , but also to redecorate old or odd coloured gift boxes to create a more rustic, simplistic design. In our next post we will show you how we up-cycled a navy polka dot gift box into a fabulously rustic gift box, using an off cut of a paper bag, a lace ribbon and a Pink Posy diamante embellishment!

Pink Posy Visits Polynesia!

- Jennie took a little piece of Pink Posy out with her to the wilds of Hawaii last month! The island of Aloha, flowers in the hair and the adornment of leis! She also learnt how to make lei's from a 3rd generation Master Lei maker and has returned from her travels with her very own lei making needle to get practising with some British flowers! 

But for something less fiddly, and non-hay fever-inducing, why not make your own Fabric Flowers- like the one's in the photos below!These look lovely on: chair sashes, worn as corsages and donned in your hair! A perfect Summer accessory! You can make your own fabric flower following our tutorial here:

A Pink Polyester/Satin and Organza Hand-made flower adorned with Pink Posy's Clear Diamante Gem Cluster Embellishment (Flat backed)- find your gem and pearl clusters here:

Why not hand-make your own chair sash decorations- using different colour fabrics to match your theme?

Want to up-cycle an old evening dress? All we did here was to tie a satin/polyester sash around the waist and affix one of our hand-made fabric flowers with a brooch pin-back (a safety pin would be sufficient). Creating a subtle contrast and added elegance!

A slightly bright photo which does not come close to demonstrate how lovely our pearl gem clusters are! You can just thread a bobby pin or two through the back of your handmade flower and wear it in your hair! Great for: weddings, evening events, festivals or even day-to-day summer wear!

Our Ivory Pearl and Clear Diamante Gem Clusters add a sense of understated beauty to any craft project and make a great finishing touch to a Fabric Flower Centre! They are flat-back and measure approx 1.5cm in diameter and can be purchased here:

What are you waiting for? Get making your own fabric flowers to match your own style/ colour theme!
