Tips and Tricks

  • You can also place a sticking foam in the bags. This provides more support for the branches and the candles and gives the whole thing more stability.

How it is done:

  • Cover the work area well with foil or paper and prepare the working materials. Wash out the inside of the empty milk or juice container well.
  • Cut off the top third of the box completely with scissors. If the inside of the box is still a little wet, dry it well with a cloth.
  • Then crumple the cut cardboard as much as possible.
  • Next, peel the outer plastic layer from the packaging. It is best to start at the edge and peel off the outer printed layer from the entire packaging. Once the entire layer is peeled off, fold the top of the rim over twice.
  • Now design the packaging as you like with the Marabu Colorado Gold colours. Then let everything dry well.
  • Finally, fill the bags with small gifts and decorate with any accessories. Or fill them with fir branches, natural materials and candles and use them as table decorations. Merry Christmas!
