I really get into giftwrapping, so I thought I’d share my secrets to a wildly successful packaging-of-a-product-to-be-given-to-another.
- I like to attach the greeting card itself (no envelope) onto the wrapped gift.
- Fabric and paper are different and interesting substitutes for ribbon. (I used a strip of fabric on the package above.)
- Monograms are always cute. I go about this by hunting down some decorative font on dafont.com, download it, print out the initial onto colored paper, cut (use a craft knife), and affix.
- Kraft wrapping paper is cheap and versatile. You can go all sorts of crazy by layering different textures and colors on plain kraft.
If you don’t want to wrap your gifts this Christmas, I will do it for you in exchange for chocolate.
