Vellum Gifts

  1. Cut strips of different-color vellum in varying widths and lengths to mimic gift boxes, lids and a ribbon. Trim some of the strips at an angle so they look less uniform.
  2. Use a glue stick to glue the vellum boxes to the card, spacing them a few centimeters apart, then glue the lids on top so they slightly overlap the boxes. Glue the “ribbon” vertically over the stack and add a few smaller strips at the top for a bow.

  2. Apply strips of washi tape in shades of green, blue and yellow diagonally onto the triangles and trim any excess.
  3. Glue the triangles to the card with a glue stick so they overlap, with the medium-size triangle in the middle.
  4. Use a small dab of craft or hot glue to attach a sequin to the tip of each triangle.
