In life, there are many times when we give great big gifts for major events. For example, the birth of a child, a niece’s/nephew’s college graduation, or someone’s wedding day.
However, sometimes there are smaller occasions that aren’t as grand as the ones mentioned before but still call for a gift to be given.
For example, giving someone a small “Get Well Soon” gift while they’re in the hospital, giving someone a token of your gratitude, or simply letting someone know that you’re thinking of them.

Time Needed to Create : 1.5-2 hours (Depending on your skill level)
Difficulty Level : Average
One sheet of A4 sized colored paper is usually enough to cover a standard sized tissue box.
For starters, place the tissue box in the centre of the colored paper (as shown below) and mark where the corners of the box touch the paper.
Then cut out the paper’s corners in the shape of squares.
As you can see in the pictures, my tissue box had a glossy texture, so glue wouldn’t really work on it. Some tissue boxes have a rough
You’ll be left with a square and a small rectangle, DON’T throw away the rectangle. Instead, set it aside because we’ll use it later.
Once you’re happy with the shape of the petals, then cut them out. You’ll notice that you have two different petals. Follow the pictures to minimize confusion.
As shown below, fold each rectangle in half and draw the shape you want for the flower’s centre. You can draw a heart, square, triangle, anything goes. Draw and cut out centres from at least one of each of the rectangle colors.
Fold along the dotted lines for the edges to meet the centre, and then fold in half vertically again. Just follow the pictures to avoid confusion
Again, it’s completely up to you to decide whether you’re going to use tape or glue to stick the cover, as I explained earlier, it all depends on the kind of tissue box you’re using.
When you’re satisfied with the shape of your leaves, cut them out and stick them to your flowers. Put all the flowers in the box as shown below and ta da! Doesn’t that look adorable?
And there you have it! One bouquet in a box ready to be gifted to anyone you choose. This is a simple, cheap, thoughtful, and customizable gift that anyone would appreciate.
You’re free to choose the shapes of the petals, the shapes of the leaves, the shapes of the flower centres, and even the colour of the box.
Experiment and get creative! Real flowers wither relatively quickly, but by presenting someone with this colourful paper arrangement, you’re giving them something that will last much longer.
The best part is that you don’t have to buy a box or gift wrap, you can present it as it is. You might choose to add a card or decorate the sides of the box, but rest assured that no matter what, this is the perfect modest gift for modest occasions.
