Summery gift box decor

I had a local bakery make these amazing coconut macaroons…..


and yes they taste just as good as they look. The problem was that the box was so plain. So I decided to spruce it up Smile

I cut strips of paper 2 inches by 12 inches and folded them accordion style……

After adding a few embellishments I came up with this….


  1. So cute! I love how that turned out and those cookies look amazing!

  2. Really neat! I love the bow idea, without using a bow. Did you have to fold those by hand?

  3. Oh my goodness, that is soo so cute!!! Love how creative you are!
