Today, begins the DCWV & May Arts Blog Hop!! All week, DCWV and May Arts will be sharing inspiration. To start the inspirational hop, I'm sharing a little DCWV Mailer Box that I covered with beautiful papers by DCWV and ribbons by May Arts.
I love the A6 size DCWV Mailer Boxes. They are perfect for gift giving, just the right size, and super easy to customize to any theme. I covered this box with papers from the Mercury Stack and coordinating ribbons from May Arts. Take a peek at my tutorial below:

Step 1: Apply Gesso to DCWV Mailer Box using a foam brush. Set aside to dry.
Step 2: Trim (15) 1/2 inch strips of Mercury Glass papers from DCWV stack. Note: I chose the gold and silver.
Step 3: Wrap each strip over creating a band and staple the center using a mini stapler. Note: This will create a loop on each side. Set aside.
Step 4: Trim papers to size of mailer box, apply adhesive using New Creative Station and adhere to DCWV Mailer Box. Secure excess paper to inside of box cover.
Step 6: Using adhesive dots, adhere May Arts Ribbon to Mailer Box and secure inside cover.
Step 7: Begin building the bow with paper bands created in step 3, layer by layer using hot glue to secure. Rotate the colors of Mercury Glass and ribbon choices. Note: You can make the bow as full as you desire by adding additional bands and ribbon.
Step 8: Add top bow and charm. Continue embellishing as desired.
