Gift Wrapping Tutorial Part Four

Gift Wrapping Tutorial Part Four


You have arrived at the fourth and final installment of this Gift Wrapping Tutorial by featured guests Kara and Darcy of McMaster and Storm in Greenville, Ohio! If you want to start at the beginning of the tutorial, click here! Stay tuned for our next featured guest: Sandra Evertson. She has an amazing holiday idea for you, I can’t wait to show you! Now, back to our fabulous Gift Wrapping Tutorial:

In this picture we used vintage paper ribbon found at a garage sale. Find funky faux fruit to add interest and unexpectedness to tuck in ribbon. For the circle tag we used Paris map paper and adhered to card stock, punched a small hole and stuck a corsage pin in to secure. This gift was an Amy Butler bag, so the pin was stuck into the fabric of the bag.


In the next photo, we share our version of a Hanukkah gift. We added apple green ribbon to add contrast to the blue tissue. Filler was added for texture and the natural color softness. A Cavallini label was added and stamped with the recipients name. Again the “gifts” pop out of a box!

    that was soooo fun! I loved Darcy’s gift, I wouldn’t have wanted to open it either! Gifts from McMaster and Storm are my favorite! I love the goodies inside the package and the packages are beautiful too. I reuse the tissue and sometimes the bags. It is amazing the things you can do with the items McMaster and Storm has on hand. I HIGHLY recommend this shop to any and everyone! It is worth your time!

  2. Hi Melissa, You are most welcome. I really am excited about your event and appreciate how much work goes into something of this nature. I did get a little confused that you have already posted some stuff and thought maybe I had gotten the dates wrong. Sorry about the wind problems. Don’t you hate computer problems? I panic when it happens to me. Anyway….hope it was okay to copy and paste from your blog but I thought that was way better than me trying to ‘splain it. :)) See ya tomorrow.

  3. How could you open the parcel, too pretty to rip into. I have given you an award, its cos I did so enjoy your pre Thanksgiving post!!!!

  7. These gifts are FABULOUS! Too good to open. This is getting my creative thoughts going. Thanks for the wonderful post. :)

  8. Thank you for sharing these wonderful details. I recently ordered some things from their store via phone. When I recieved my order, it was wrapped every bit as wonderfully as shown in the tutorials. It was a wonderful suprise and I enjoyed the package almost as much as what I’d ordered. They have such a fabulous eye for the littlest of details! Thanks!
