Have you ever received a gift that was so beautifully wrapped you just couldn’t bear to open it up and ruin the presentation? You meticulously took the time to carefully undo every piece of tape holding it together, while hoping that all the lovely would stay in tack. Well we’re about to show you how to be the giver of just such an eye pleasing display. And it’s a lot easier than you may think. By simply playing with textures and layers, you’ll learn how to make one of the prettiest packages around, ideal for gifting to those that meant the most throughout your wedding planning process, your bridal party and your parents. Here’s the crafty how-to.
- 9 x 9 inch gift box and all purpose glue (make sure the one you select is suitable for use on fabric)
- wrapping paper of your choice (we recommend a textured white and got ours at Indigo)
- large pink fabric ruffle flower
- 2 medium decorative rolled fabric lace flowers
- a few faux flowers – we used a peony bud and apple blossoms
- ivory ruffled fabric ribbon trim
- plain fabric ribbon in pastel pink
- lace fabric
- personalized burlap chic design thank you stamp and gold ink
- white merchandise tag
The Step by Step
Step 1: wrap your box and secure the paper using all purpose glue.
Step 2: to the top left corner of your box, glue a bundle of lace fabric. Glue it such that it bunches, rather than laying flat.
Step 3: intertwine the plain fabric ribbon into a quarter of the lace and glue to secure.
Step 4: glue on the fabric flower to the center of the lace.
Step 5: attach the peony bud (or small faux flower of your choice) to the bottom right of the fabric flower, on top of your bunched lace.
Steps 6 & 7: attach both lace fabric flowers next to the peony bud.
Step 8: cut a piece of ruffled fabric trim and a strand of lace (of the same width as the ruffled trim) to a length that will drape off the side of your box. Our strands were approximately 12 inches in length.
Step 9: glue the ruffled fabric ribbon to the bottom left corner of the box, and then attach the piece of lace ribbon to it. A single point of attachment should work for both, allowing the ribbons to hang loosely.
Step 10: glue your faux blossoms to the box, starting just underneath the lace fabric flowers, working your way down creating a cascade alongside the fabric ribbon. End your cascade approximately three quarters of the way down the side of the box.
Step 11: stamp your tag and attach with glue to your box, tucking underneath your lace flowers and cascading blossoms.
