Christmas Gift Wrap | Creative Ideas & Tips

Hi friends.  The last few days have been a struggle.  I’ve been working on this gift wrap post up for days but my photos weren’t loading so I haven’t been able to publish this post.  I think I’ve got the bugs fixed now so here’s the long-awaited post, just in time for a weekend gift wrapping marathon. 

**disclaimer:  Reliant Ribbon sent me some amazing ribbons to use for my holiday gift wrap post, but all words, opinions and gift wrap inspiration is mine.

I’ve had a passion for wrapping gifts for years and love to go the extra mile when creating beautiful packages.  If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I have somewhat of an obsession with pretty wrapping paper and ribbon. And a fun embellishment is usually part of my gift wrap formula too.

Today I’m going to share a few Christmas gifts that I wrapped along with some tips to help you give your holiday wrap a little extra pizzazz!

Creative Christmas Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

May no gift be too small to give, nor too simple to receive,
which is wrapped in thoughtfulness and tied with love.  ~ L.O. Baird

When I started planning my Christmas theme earlier this year, I knew I wanted to keep my holiday gift wrap simple.  This year it was going to be all about the ribbon, paper and fun accents.

FYI–I use my DIY Gift Wrap Crate to keep all of my holiday wrapping supplies organized and in one place. And after the holidays I’ll switch out the paper and ribbon for spring and summer gift giving.  ***Need a last minute Christmas gift?  The gift wrap crate is a simple project that would be great for someone who loves to wraps.


Ok, let’s get into the details of my wrap…

All of the wrapping paper that I used this year is from HomeGoods.  They have an awesome selection of holiday wrapping paper and you can’t beat the price.  When I’m shopping for gift wrap, especially at Christmas, I like to buy patterns and colors that can be used year-round.  Polka Dots, stripes, plaids and subtle patterns are what I shop for.   With non-seasonal wrapping paper, I use inexpensive embellishments to reflect the season or gift-giving occasion.

My ribbon this year is from one of my favorite ribbon sources, Reliant Ribbon.  Reliant Ribbon is a family owned wholesale ribbon company that sells a wide range of craft and floral ribbon.  They have over 15,000 different ribbon styles so there is literally something for every gift wrap and decorating need.

♦  CREATIVE HOLIDAY GIFT WRAP INSPIRATION ♦

One of my favorite gift wrapping tricks is to combine two or more ribbons to create a layered look. Here I layered a narrow red and white striped ribbon on top of a wide solid red ribbon.  The embellishments are mini red and green mercury glass ornaments I bought at Steve McKenzie’s.  These ornaments are great as a package topper but can also be used to decorate a small tree or wreath.  p.s.  all holiday product at Steve McKenzie’s is 50% off through 12/31 with code: MERRY50 so it’s a great time to stock up for next year!

Another fun way I like to jazz up my holiday gift wrap is by tying a double bow with pretty satin ribbon.  To do this you will want to cut the ribbon extra long.  Wrap the ribbon around your box, tie the first bow then know the ribbon on top of that bow to secure it.  Now you can tie a second bow and add an embellishment.

I love using unexpected materials to wrap gifts.  This year I had the idea of using faux fur as a ribbon substitute.  I headed to JoAnn Fabric and found this gorgeous white faux fur trim which was sold by the yard.  I cut a piece long enough to wrap around my box and secured it with a satin ribbon bow.  tip:  a brown or black faux fur is a great ribbon alternative for a men’s gift.

Did you know that a lot of woven ribbons can be curled using the blade of your scissors.  #oldschooltrick Curls are a great way to make your gift wrap more festive.  And don’t be afraid to combine and curl multiple ribbons together which can create a really fun topper.

When it comes to holiday gift tags, I use traditional Christmas tags as well as items I find in the craft aisle at Michaels.  The JOY tag below is part of a 60 piece Holiday Chipboard Quote Set used for scrapbooking.  The tiny tags are perfect for adding a little whimsy to your gift wrap.

Using ornaments as an embellishment is not a new idea but how you use them can be.  Instead of tying this wreath ornament to the ribbon, I tied a knot in the ribbon and bunched the ends in the center of the wreath. I love the way this looks on a round gift box.

One of the tips I share when I teach my gift wrap workshops is to to never throw away scrap pieces of wrapping paper or ribbon.  Scrap ribbon can be used to wrap a small box or combined with another ribbon for layering.  On the box below, I used a piece of scrap ribbon along with a left over Christmas card to decorate the box.

Creative gift wrapping is equal parts the items you wrap with and how you use those items.  All it takes to create beautifully wrapped gifts is thinking outside the box (pun intended).

  I hope you found these wrapping tips and my Christmas gift wrap inspirational.  Be sure to stop by my Instagram feed tomorrow because I’ll be sharing a few last-minute wrapping ideas.

Gift Wrap Inspiration: Blue, Yellow & Silver Wedding Wrap

Hi friends.  I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend.  I sure did!

 I’m back today with another gift wrap inspiration post for you.  Over the years I’ve shared wrapping ideas for birthdays, mother’s day, Valentine’s day and other special occasions but never for a wedding.  Today I’m sharing inspiration for a wedding along with a few wedding specific gift wrapping tips. Enjoy!

Blue & White Wedding Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

The past couple of years we have not attended many weddings but this year is different.  We have several weddings between now and August and that means some fun gift wrapping for me.

When I wrap wedding gifts I like to use paper, ribbon and embellishments that coordinate with the colors for the wedding.  It’s such an easy way to make the gift even more special.

Blue & White Wedding Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

The hubs and I will be attending a family wedding this weekend where the colors are blue, yellow and silver.   The color combination is perfect for a summer wedding and it provided great inspiration for wrapping our gift.

Wedding Gift Wrap Inspiration:  Blue, Yellow & Silver

Since our gift is in a large box, I used a wrapping paper with a bold pattern.  The blue and white lattice design is perfect for a wedding and the pattern is feminine without being too girly.

tip:  buy wrapping paper that can work for more than one occasion and then use embellishments to make the wrapping formal or casual, depending on the event

Once the box was wrapped, I tried a wide white grosgrain ribbon around it and then layered a navy silk ribbon on top.  I cut the navy ribbon long enough so I could tie multiple bows on top.

To add in the yellow color, I created a flower bouquet for the top of the box using silk flowers I picked up at the Dollar Store.

The final touch was a silver glitter gift tag that I dressed up with yellow and navy fabric flowers from the craft store.

Using different styles of flowers added interest and gave the top of the box a personalized feel.

It’s wedding season so if you’ll be wrapping wedding gifts, keep these tips in mind…

GIFT WRAPPING TIPS FOR WEDDING GIFTS

  1. If you don’t want to coordinate your gift wrap with the wedding colors, it’s always classic to use white or silver wrapping paper.
  2. Always attach a gift tap or card securely to your gift.  Or better yet, place the card inside the box and attach a tag with the couples name on it to the outside of the box.
  3. If you’re planning on giving an envelope containing money or gift cards, put those items in an envelope and wrap a ribbon around it.  A ribbon will signify that the envelope it is a gift so it doesn’t get missed or tossed out.
  4. Embellishments are a fun way to accent your gift wrap and make your gift extra special.  My favorite gift embellishments include silk flowers, oversized monogram letters and crystal beads.

 

Gift Wrap Inspiration: Tassel Ribbon Tie

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

With Mother’s Day just a few weeks away, you may have gift giving on your mind.  If you’re looking for the perfect gift, be sure to check out my Mother’s Day Gift Guide.  Once you’ve purchased a gift you’ll need to wrap it so I’ve got a fun and easy gift wrap idea for you today.

DIY GIFT WRAP: Tassel Ribbon Tie

Wrapping gifts is one of my favorite things to do and because I’m a paper and ribbon collector {aka-hoarder} I’ve got a stash of pretty paper and embellishments perfect for the occasion.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

I’m always drawn to floral motifs when it comes to Mother’s Day gift wrap so I chose this pretty orange and pink floral blossom paper.  I love the bold design and the accent of apple green in the background pattern.

Similar Floral Gift Wrap // Similar Faux Leather Tassels // Orange Ribbon

Wanting to put a different spin on the bow, I decided to create a tassel tie using white faux leather tassels that I had.

You won’t believe where these tassel came from.  They originally started out as tassel garland from the Nate Berkus collection at Target.  I scored several sets of the garland in white and black on clearance for less than $3!

When I purchased the garland I had the idea of making necklaces but also knew the tassels would make a great gift wrap embellishment.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle
Making the tassel tie was super easy.  I measured a length of ribbon long enough to fit around the box and tie and simple bow. Then I tied a tassel on to each end.  Once the box was wrapped, I used the tassel tie like a regular ribbon to embellish the gifts.

One of the best parts of creative gift wrapping is using items in new ways.  These tassels were meant for home decor but make the perfect finishing touch for a gift.

The next time you shop the clearance aisle at your favorite store, be on the look-out for trinkets and charms you can use when wrapping gifts.

Gift Wrap Inspiration: DIY Paper Gift Bags Using Wrapping Paper

DIY Gift Bags Using Wrapping Paper by ConfettiStyle

If you know me, you know that I’d rather make my own gift bags versus buy them at the store.  Handcrafted gift bags are easier to make than you might think and you probably already have the supplies on hand.

For my latest gift wrap project, I made some spring inspired gift bags using wrapping paper, ribbon and craft bags from Paper Mart.  I created a variety of sizes and decorated each one differently to show you how easy it is to customize handmade gift bags.  And I created a how-to guide that you can download (link at end of the post).

You can see that I made different styles of ribbon handles for each bag.  My favorite is the braided handle on the large striped bag.

To create the braid,  I cut three equal lengths of ribbon and braided them together. Once the ends were inserted through the holes at the top of the bag, I tied them in a knot to secure the ends.

On the large floral bag below, I punched holes on the corners and in the center and tied ribbons through the holes. I used white hole reinforcements to protect the holes from tearing.

tip: Everyday office supplies can make great gift wrap embellishments.

The mini chevron bags I taped to  the front of my gift bags holds a kraft gift tag.  The bags would also be great to hold sweet treats with an Easter gift.

Paper Mart sells the chevron bags in three sizes and 8 colors and I love using them in gift wrap projects.

Gift Wrap Inspiration: Pleated Paper Valentines Wrap

Pleated Paper Valentine's Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

Whew!  We made it to Friday.  I have had a jammed packed week and I’m glad the weekend is upon us.  Even though I have some work to catch up on this weekend, I also plan to enjoy some down time and watch all the festivities surrounding the Super Bowl.  And yes I’ll be rooting on the Falcons!

I’ve got a fun and easy gift wrap inspiration post for your today, just in time for all your Valentine’s Day gift giving.

Because I wrap a lot of gifts during the year, I am always experimenting with different ways to manipulate the paper to give my gifts some flair.  For my Valentines wrap this year I decided to do a little pleat treatment with my paper.

Pleated Paper Valentine's Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

It’s really easy to pleat gift wrap.  To start, determine the amount of paper you’ll need to wrap your box and add about 8″.  The extra paper will allow you to create multiple pleats in your paper and still be able to wrap your box.  You’ll be creating your pleats horizontally across the width of the paper.

The first pleat I made was pretty deep (about 3 1/2″) and I’ll explain why in a minute.

Pleated Paper Valentine's Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

Once you’ve made your first pleat, continue pleating your paper with small folds.  You want to create enough pleats so they stand out on your gift.

Pleated Paper Valentine's Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

Once all your pleats are made, turn your paper over and tape the pleats down on each edge of the paper.  This will hold the pleats in place.

And now all you have to do is wrap your gift.

Pleated Paper Valentine's Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

The reason I made the first pleat extra deep was to create a pocket that could hold a Valentine’s Day card.  Pretty clever, right?!

The pocket can also hold money, a photo or a sweet treat like a chocolate heart.

You can find the free printableValentine’s Day cards I designed here.

I added bows and ribbon to complete my Valentines wrap and just love the way the packages look.

I’ll be back tomorrow with more gift wrap inspiration but this time is has noting to do with wrapping gifts.

My Christmas Gift Wrap–It’s All In The Details

Christmas Gift Wrap Inspiration

Can we talk Christmas gift wrap for a minute?  

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while you all know that I am a bit of a snob when it comes to gift wrap and ribbon.  I don’t have anything against gift bags but when it comes to wrapping gifts, I whole-heartedly believe that the presentation of a gift adds to the entire gift giving experience.

When it came time to come up with a gift wrap plan for Christmas, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Paper Mart.  Paper Mart is a proud sponsor of the 2016 Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour and they had everything I needed to make my gift wrap dreams come true.

Last year I created this mobile gift wrap cart to hold my holiday paper and ribbons.  I pulled it out again this year and stocked it with all my supplies.  You can read all about how I created the cart here.

img_52582016-christmas-giftwrap-by-confettistyle

There are lots of things I love about Paper Mart  including their vast range of wrapping paper, ribbon, embellishments, boxes and tissue paper.  They have wrapping paper for every gift occasion and a great offering of  party supplies.

img_52542016-christmas-giftwrap-by-confettistyle

img_52392016-christmas-giftwrap-by-confettistyle

The foundation of my gift wrap plan was this beautiful Pinecones & Poinsettia gift wrap.  There are lots of colors in this paper so I knew I could mix and match it with other wrapping paper and ribbons.

I’m a fan of two-sided ribbon and used the red and gold satin ribbon above to create a layered bow.  I tucked my favorite holly leaf embellishments under each corner of the bow.

img_52502016-christmas-giftwrap-by-confettistyle

For this box, I layered the poinsettia paper over a small black and white plaid paper.

img_5236

I used this gold metallic ribbon around a few solid colored boxes that I had.  The gold has a shimmer to it and is pretty when tied in a multi loop bow.

The pretty package embellishment is a vintage brooch I pulled out of my jewelry stash.

img_52482016-christmas-giftwrap-by-confettistyle

I paired the poinsettia paper with a black and white striped paper and love this look.  The embellishments on top are honeycomb tissue paper balls that I taped to the top of the belly band.  Belly band is a fancy name for a piece of paper that wraps around something. #ribbonlingo

img_52312016-christmas-giftwrap-by-confettistyle

This natural holly leaf ribbon is so pretty and you can see the beautiful bows you can make with it.  I added some small gold ornaments in the center for a little sparkle.

I shared my Christmas tree in part 1 of the Merry & Bright Home Tour and matched some of the colors on the tree with the colors in the poinsettia paper. And I used the black and white plaid ribbon on the tree and for my Christmas gift wrap.
