 Creative Gift Wrapping: Wrapped Open Box

Creative gift wrapping is my favorite thing this time of year.  I have an outpouring of boxes (thanks to online shopping)...but they don't always fit the gifts I'm giving.
This is a great way to wrap something that you want visible, is too big for the box you own, or just to show off your amazing gift giving.  Works great for bringing dinner over to a family too...just wrap the open box so it looks much prettier than just a box, but they don't have to return it.
You will need:
1 Cardboard Box (with the top flaps cut off)
Wrapping Paper
Clear Tape
Adhesive Roller Tape
If you are fortunate to find wrapping paper with grid lines on the backside, this will be a snap.  Cut a piece of wrapping paper that fits the box on the four sides.  Cut the corner of the wrapping paper to the corner of the box, like pictured:
Repeat cutting the corners on all four corners.
Fold down the top edge about an inch or so.
Apply the adhesive tape on the wrapping paper on all the edges and across the top.
Wrap it up over the box and tuck the flap inside the box.
Repeat this process for all 4 sides.
Now the box is covered all over the outside of the box and can be filled with all sorts of goodies.
 I included a Watercolor gift pack:
Adult Coloring gift pack:
Hand Lettering gift pack:
And Painting gift pack...with some stickers:
Stacked the tall way inside the open box for the cutest gift imaginable!  I love receiving craft supplies, so this is my kind of gift!
If you did a better job wrapping this than me...wrapping is NOT my strong suit...then you could use these for storage in your office or craft room!  Great way to upcycle some old boxes!
