Gift Wrapping Tips: Post 3

silver bows

I love purchasing these cheap little bow sets. They are so tacky and yet can be incorporated into an overall look that is very elegant. This particular package is a bit different from the bow in my example, but it came from a cheap set like this that I bought at the dollar store. I really like the “mesh netting” I used in the example below and am always on the look out for this particular style. The ones above work in much the same way, just a bit different look.

Pulling it all together:

  • These little boxes were purchased as a set (of 2 or 4?) from the dollar store.
  • I made the matching gift cards with a snowflake stamp and white ink on matching blue paper that I cut into circles. I added a button brad to the center and a few dots of glitter glue to add a bit of sparkle.
  • The embellishment on top consists of one of the dollar store mesh bows, opalescent shreds, basic white curly ribbon and a 6 -8 inch strand of wire holly garland twisted to give the look added dimension.

The above shots are all of the same gift, just different angles. I love the little flap on the dollar store box that also has a snowflake on it. So cute, for so little!
