A cheap and easy way to add the personal touch to decorations


  • wrapping paper ( 2 or more contrasting colours)
  • cardboard boxes ( tomato boxes from your local green grocer work well)
  • glue stick


  1. Cover boxes in wrapping paper
  2. Cut out letters you need to make the name you require ( you can download stencils if you want , or do them free hand ) from contrasting wrapping paper
  3. Stick one letter per box
    either stack vertically or lay horizontally on a table

Notes... I've done this before for a baby shower and used 3 different pastel colours, or just recently as in the picture with black background and bright letters. The only limit is your imagination!
