I have always loved to decorate gifts in a special way. Do you ever notice how much more excited a person is to open a beautifully wrapped gift or how good you feel when you receive one? Whether you make it fun or fancy, it's actually very easy to do. The nice thing about gift-wrapping is that there are no rules. You can match any colors, textures or items together to create your masterpiece. With just a little creativity and a few items, you can make a gift that stands out from the rest. Not only will your recipient will love it but it will also make them feel very special. Here are a few tips:
Wrapping Paper and Ribbon
While there are many different styles and designs of wrapping paper on the market, I usually to stick to non-specific wrapping paper and decorate my gifts with my own designs. I use a solid color sometimes with sheen or abstract pattern depending on what design I am creating. Make sure that the paper is sturdy enough so it will not tear when wrapping a present and thick enough so you cannot see the gift through the paper. I try and avoid paper that is too thick because it can be difficult to use.
Scrapbooking paper or craft paper is the key to many of my designs. It can be found at craft stores and is very inexpensive. It comes in very creative styles and colors that you cannot find in ordinary wrapping paper and is great to use as your accent paper.
Wired, fabric ribbon is the easiest ribbon to work with and is available in all widths, styles and colors. When added to a present, it makes any gift look fancy. Combining different ribbon textures and widths always results in a dazzling gift display.
Small boxes are fun and easy to decorate. You can use leftover pieces from other projects to create a design. Just remember when you plan on giving a small box, make sure the contents reflect the size of the box. While they are great for holding small items, no matter how spectacular the design of the wrapping may be, this may be lost on a recipient who was expecting a piece of jewelry or a watch but instead receives a gift card
