iLovetoCreate® No-Wrap Holiday Gift Boxes

This holiday season, wrap it up with iLovetoCreate® No-Wrap Holiday Gift Boxes! They require no wrapping and they’re totally reusable by the recipient long after the gift is opened! Aleene’s® Fast Grab™ Tacky Glue® makes it easy to adorn the plain box with a favorite ornament. We've made some suggestions on how and what to paint in the supply list, but you can easily change colors, boxes and ornaments to make this project as unique as you and the person you are giving the gift to are!
