It's a fact: tiny, mini things are completely irresistible. From mini polaroids to mini terrariums to mini balloon vases, it seems no one can suppress their squeals at the sight of pint-sized objects. Mix that elation in with a good dose of vintage charm and you've got yourself the ultimate Mini-Induced Mind Melt. So, if you think you can handle that kind of raw, so-cute-your-brain-just-exploded power, I've got the tutorial for you!
This retro-inspired mini gift box garland is super easy to make if not a little labor intensive. I love it used on mini silver trees (as pictured) but think it would be right at home on a full-sized tree or strung across a mantle! However you use it is up to you, but to get started here's what you'll need:
- crepe paper sheets
- empty cereal box (or mini raisin boxes if you don't want to worry about cutting the cereal box down into tiny boxes--the labor intensive part)
- glue dots
- embroidery thread or thin metallic ribbon
