1Download and print project template. Trace the pattern four times on foam board, and then cut each side out. Glue Evergreen Glitter cardstock to two of the pieces and the Red Polka Dot cardstock to the other two pieces. Trim excess cardstock.
2Align the foam edge of one foam board side against the cardstock edge of another. One corner at a time, apply glue to foam board edge and press into place, holding until set. Repeat with other foam board pieces, alternating cardstock patterns as you go.
3Set project on top of foam board and trace all around bottom edge. Cut out tracing (this is your box's base). Apply glue to the foam edges on bottom of the project and then press onto the base.
4Cut four 9-1/4" lengths of ribbon and attach to the top edge of box. Glue letter stickers to spell out recipient's name and buttons to the box. (If you want to give stickers dimension, place the stickers on foam board scraps cut the letters out, then glue them to the box.) Cut four 21" lengths of ribbon and tie into bows. Glue bells to ends of bows and glue bows to corners of box. Fill box with tissue paper and gifts.
