Decorating Plain Gift Boxes with Christmas-themed Embroidery
For this fast and simple project we used the designs from the One-Color Vintage Santa Set.
The designs are available in 3 sizes: large (5" x 7"), mega (6" x 10") and commercial (8" x 12") hoops. You can choose any size depending on the size of the boxes.
Gift boxes decorated with Christmas-themed embroidery.

You will need:
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon, the choice of colors is yours,
  • white gift boxes,
  • light-colored cotton fabric,
  • light-weight embroidery stabilizer, preferably iron-on,
  • permanent fabric adhesive or white glue,
  • decorative scotch tape,
  • iron,
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter, or scissors and pencil,
  • additional embellishments, such as small beads or rhinestones, are great, but not necessary.
Hoop the fabric with light-weight stabilizer. Tighten the hoop securely.
Upload the file of your choice into the machine.
Embroider the file.
Stitch-outs of 2 designs.

Decorating the Gift Box
Measure the lid of the box and trim the stitch-out accordingly: the stitch-out should be at least 1" smaller than the lid.
