The Look and How-To

The How-To: once you’ve filled your box, wrap it, leaving an equal amount of excess paper on either end for the tie offs. Tie ends with satin ribbon and then add in the gold twine. Run a couple strands of gold twine from one end of the box to the other, creating an imperfect layer over your wrap. Complete with tag.
