To make this I simply recycled some green flyers that were in the mail with a green used envelope from Christmas. I used the Arnold Grummer paper making kit and followed the traditional method as can be seen in this video.
At the last moment of mixing the pulp I added the bling to the mix.
Once the paper was dry I lay one piece over another and glued them together with a glue stick. I then cut out the gift box using a template and cutting tool from Martha Stewart Crafts.
I assembled the box and decorated it with some stickers from the Dollar store.
I also made a shamrock by punching four small hearts and glued them to a stem. To make this I used a scrap of the same green handmade paper.
Finally I filled the box with the good stuff!
