Among all my recent creative pursuits, gift wrapping is the one that I’ve been enjoying the most :). I’ve loved exploring with different kinds of paper, ribbon, embellishments and styles. It is such an inspired process that allows me to experiment, to innovate, to personalize, and ofcourse, to prettify :). And the results are almost always gratifying :).
My friends keep on telling me that I should start doing gift wrapping for a living, but I fear that doing so would put me under tremendous pressure, so much so that I may lose my love for it altogether. Hahaha! 🙂
So instead, I’ve decided to share some of my ideas here on my blog :). Hopefully you will find some inspiration from them, and may even be encouraged to do some gift wrapping of your own! 🙂
For my first Gift Wrapping Idea, I’ve decided to share what I did for my dad’s present.
It’s really very simple.
I started out by choosing a navy blue wrapping paper with white design. To add a bit of visual interest, I paired it with a thick, plaid grosgrain ribbon in yellow and black, to contrast the “daintiness” of the wrapper. I finished it off with a diy gift tag, that the little one and I collaborated on. I did the calligraphy, while she stuck the pompoms and the sequins. And boy did she have fun doing it! 🙂
The result is a cheerful and festive looking package! I love that it has so much personality, and was so easy to put together! 🙂
So I hope you liked my first gift wrapping idea entry. Expect more to come!
Happy Sunday, folks! 🙂
