Happy Saturday friends! I was a busy elf last night wrapping presents! I know what you’re thinking….this girl is crazy! Wrapping presents? I know most of us haven’t even bought any gifts yet but this year is super busy for us so I had to get an early start! My magazine shoot is coming up for American Farmhouse Style and I need presents for the shoot. The idea of wrapping fake presents and wasting all of that cute paper didn’t sit well with me!
SO I WANT TO TEACH YOU A FEW TRICKS TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR PAPER AND RIBBON!
So here it is!
Start out by getting an assortment of different box sizes! You can find some great boxes here! WHITE CHRISTMAS BOXES
Also you can find some cute ones here! CHRISTMAS THEMED BOXES
Once you have all your boxes with the gifts inside you can start picking out wrapping paper ! I like to pick out AT LEAST 4 rolls. Here’s some super cute ones I grabbed for myself! VINTAGE STYLE WRAPPING PAPER and some other cute paper CHRISTMAS WRAPPING PAPER
The key is to wrap one present at a time and add bows and ribbon to each one at a time! I listed some super cute ribbon and bows to use! THE CUTEST GOLD RIBBON BUNDLE IS LINKED HERE GOLD RIBBON PACK.
Bows are everything and these ones are so cute! HEMP STYLE BOW
These velvet bows are everything too! WHITE VELVET BOW
THE LAST THING YOU CANT FORGET IS SUPER CUTE CHRISTMAS TAGS
THESE ONES HERE ARE SO CUTE AND MATCH THE RIBBON AND BOWS AND PAPER I LINKED HERE CHRISTMAS TAGS
OKAY ENOUGH LINKS AND PRODUCTS LETS GET TO THE FUN PART WRAPPING!
I like to layer my ribbon to give it a full effect! I do one thick ribbon and one skinny ribbon! Two bows from each ribbon to make it stand out! Silvers and golds were the theme of my tree so I stuck with that!
When I switch paper I make sure to use one of the same items from the previous present so it looks cohesive! You can do different tags to mix and match but the trick is blending it all.
Two different wrapping but each one of the same plaid ribbon but with different bows!
I really like to use the wire ribbon because it’s easy to work with and you can wrap it around your finger to make curl!!! No more pulling your scissors down to curl ribbon.
So if you’re into making your presents look fun and festive then I hope this was helpful and inspirational!
