This gift (above) contains a print in a frame (rectangular shape).
Wrap gift in desired tissue, just like you would in wrapping a box with paper.
Then take another color of tissue and fold into pleating technique and line up on top (use approximately three sheets each, pleated separately to add fullness). Tie ribbon around on each end and make your bows.
For bird, take quilling paper (we used ivory) and curl ends around a toothpick, then glue into beak. Finally, add & glue boxwood garland in as well. (birds & quilling paper are included in our giveaway!)
This gift was a European hamper basket with goodies inside. Wrap outside with tissue (this tissue came with the package, so Kara reused it to wrap Darcy’s gift, thus inspiring the swan lake theme).
Secure tissue around basket horizontally with ribbon, pleat tissue and place in areas to make it dimensional. I then tied and made bows in two other key places to add interest and hold tissue in place.
Place card in between two tied places to secure. Card has a label on front stamped with Darcy’s name.
I added millinery flowers, pinecones from my yard that are sprayed with glitter, then placed a banner around the swan. I had fun with this gift! The color is unexpected. Be creative with colors, we have an array of tissue colors at all times to mix different combos together. And we always have shades of pink to mix in!
This gift was waiting for Darcy when she came into the store…she didn’t want to open it and end the magical state of a beautifully wrapped gift!
Enjoy wrapping gifts, take your time. Start early and spread it out over a few weeks!
