    Confused Decorating the care packages

    Advertisements
    Okay my first care package and I got Christmas wrapping paper to decorate the inside of the box. Do I use glue and how do you get the paper to look so nice, everyone's looks so nice and I am having a hell of a time decorating mine. TIA

    I would use a glue stick then it won't pucker but it'll hold up. DH is on submarines so no care packages but that's how I've always done something like that.

    Like the above PP suggested, I use glue sticks . Also I measured the inside drew it on the plain side of the paper, then cut and pasted because I am odd about getting things like that juuuuust right .

    I used liquid glue when I did mine. I cut the paper first and glued it down piece by piece. It was a bit of a pain to keep the box from collapsing in while I did it, but it came out fine.

    ETA: a glue stick probably would be easier

    I've always used the glue sticks also It seems to hold up pretty well & it doesn't look messy!

    Using that double-sided photo tape works too! Especially on the corners where glue tends to goop.
