Space-themed gift box

Make your own mini gift packages

A tiny gift box is brilliant for packing tiny treats and is sure to bring a smile to someone’s face. How big you make it is up to you and will depend on the size of the gift. Lisa Tihanyi from Germany, well-known for her @meinfeenstaub blog, has developed this charming idea and designed a space-themed gift box, adding stars, planets, moons and the like. For the decoration, she chose edding gloss paint markers in shimmery metallics. The gleaming colours show up beautifully on all dark and smooth materials, including paper. In addition to classic gold and silver, the range features other striking shades such as green metallic and violet metallic.
