5. Embellish a Gift Box with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive
Ready to get some presents under the tree, but want to make sure they look picture-perfect? With a little bit of ribbon and our Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, you can transform a plain box into a piece of décor! Select a gift box and coordinating ribbon, then cut two pieces of the ribbon that measure over the lit both vertically and horizontally, leaving enough room to wrap over the sides of the lid. Apply the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive to the backside of your ribbon and adhere to your box. You can finish it off with a hand-tied bow adhered with the MONO Adhesive Dots.
