3 AWESOME WRAP IDEAS!

’tis the season for gift giving (and gift wrapping!). today we’re going to learn how to perfectly wrap a gift like the pros. if you’ve ever watched one of those in-store gift wrappers you know that they take it to the next level with their perfection (which i always appreciate). we’re also going to throw in a couple of quick and easy ways to mix up your standard wrapping job that will be sure to make an impact.

what you’ll need: 

•Scotch® Doubled Sided Tape
• scissors
• wrapping paper of choice
• printable gems (you can download for free, here)
• metallic or colored tape
* 1″ hole punch

option #1: we started with the most beautiful hand painted wrapping papers by birch & goldberry. we couldn’t pick just one favorite so we incorporated multiple by adding 3D gems on the top in contrasting papers. once you print the gems, place your wrapping paper on top of the pattern and cut out the shape. fold along the outlined edges and secure with Scotch® Double Sided Tape.

option #2: use your 1″ hole punch to create cut outs in a piece of your wrapping paper and then place directly over an already wrapped gift.

option #3: we love the idea of adding metallic tape around the outside edges of your box. we used Scotch® Brand silver tape which also comes in a ton of other colors to match your own papers.

receiving a beautiful wrapped gift is such a treat. i’ve been given some gifts that were so stunning i don’t even want to unwrap them.
