Well I’m trying to make a good visualization on your centerpeices.  Do you by chance have pitctures?  What if you just used thick ribbon?  You would know that your edges are straight…and you don’t have to tie a bow or anything.  Just cut it so the ends match perectly.  Do you think that would work?

mmmm…how about wrapping paper? That way it could definitely go all the way around the box and only have the one seam.  Depending on the size of the box, perhaps even like peel & stick liner/wall paper?

Are you looking for the paper to completely cover the sides of the box, or more like a ribbon?

I would use a ribbon instead of paper. It would be more sturdy. With paper, you run the risk of it getting wet or torn. Your idea is a good one though.

I agree – paper might be too delicate.

Grossgrain ribbon is textured. Also, look for specialty ribbon like they sell at Christmas. Some of it is textured too.

I think they will look very nice, and yes, I think you should go with the ribbon. If it were me, that is what I would do.

Oh, to measure for the ribbon, get a string or a peice of yarn or something similar and tie it around your vase the way you want it, then measure it and multiply by how many vases you are going to wrap to get the amount of ribbon you will need. I suggest purchasing all of your ribbon or whatevery you use all at the same time, so you don’t run the risk of it not being available if you need more.
