I love to make decorative boxes for either display or to give as gifts and they are even better when you use recycled or repurposed items. I made this little gift box out of a paper mache box that I had laying around for awhile which I covered in some papers, crocheted ribbon and pink trim. On the top of the box I glued an ornament, which I removed the string from it, and then for my "snow" I used some cotton balls which I spread out and then added some glitter and ice crystals to it.
