Choosing your design

Follow our easy step-by-step guide

Step 1) Cover the outside of the box and lid with brown paper, folding neatly to the inside and underside as if wrapping a present. Secure with strips of double-sided tape.

Step 2) Take a look at the wallpaper offcuts and choose favourite sections of the design, such as rose blooms and leaf sprays. Cut around them carefully (see illustration).
