- three packages of sheet moss (available at craft and hobby stores)
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- 1 1/2" non-wired ribbon
- brown Kraft paper, or any other type of gift wrap
- one holiday floral pick (such as faux greenery with pinecones, available at craft or floral supply shops)
- two half-sized floral foam bricks
- seven regular-sized floral foam bricks
- marker or pen
- measuring tape
Bond Floral Foam Bricks
Adhere four regular-sized floral foam bricks together with hot glue so that they form one large, flat gift box. Next, adhere two regular-sized floral foam bricks with two half-sized floral foam bricks so that they form another slightly smaller, flat gift box. Set aside the remaining full-sized foam brick for the top of the "gift" pile.
Wrap Floral Foam
Wrap the smaller floral foam gift box with brown Kraft paper, or any other type of wrapping paper that coordinates with the green moss.
Mark and Measure
Place the wrapped box on top of (and in the center of) the larger floral foam gift box and use a pen or marker to trace a line onto the floral foam at each end of the box.
Using a measuring tape, determine the size of each of the four vertical sides and the top portion outside the lines.
Use chalk shavings and leaf prints to create a distinctive container for photos.
