How to Dress Up Your Gift Boxes

What you will need:

  • 1 sheet of white and 1 sheet of gold paper per gift
  • Ruler
  • Gold wire (30 cm)
  • Gold ribbon or string (enough to wrap around the box twice with some extra length)
  • Gold or clear tape
  • Scissors

  1. Wrap the package with gold ribbon or string.
  2. Fold origami as directed (see folding instructions). Repeat four times for one flower. Make as many flowers as desired.
  3. Attach the flowers to the ribbon with the gold wire.
  4. Place on top of your Lindt boxes or other gifts.

Folding instructions

  1. Cut a piece of paper that is 10 cm x 10 cm. 
  2. Fold the square in half to form a triangle. 
  3. Fold the outer corner of the triangle to the centre. 
  4. Repeat with the opposite end to form a diamond. 
  5. Fold the two wings flat so you can see the crease in the centre of the wings. 
  6. Fold the tips of the triangle down and tuck inside. 
  7. Fold the two wings in half. 
  8. Roll the two wing edges together and secure with tape.
