Gift Wrapping Tutorial Design #1

This is going to be my first gift wrapping tutorial, so to those who love wrapping a presents for special occasions I will share to you some of my gift wrapping skills that I've learned over the years.

Things you need:
  1. Clear tape
  2. Tape measure
  3. Scissor
  4. Ribbons ( 1 inch size)
  5. Bows
  6. Wrapping paper (and the presents that you are going to wrap

Today I will show you the most simplest design. For the bow you can buy any bows  in the store that already made, color of your choice and you can buy also the ribbons that match with your bow color. It is not necessarily that the ribbon and the bow are in the same color you can choose and try any other colors as long as they go well together.
The very first step is to put your presents in the box and wrap it with the gift wrapper of your choice. Take the ribbon and place it lengthwise and crosswise on the center of the wrapped box 

  1. Used box such as(shoe box, cardboard box, any type of box depends the size of your presents) is perfect for reusing it.
  2. The opening always face up, tape it before wrapping the box.
  3. Use tape measure to measure the box, make sure your bow is on the center and not crooked.

Cut the ribbon into half about 50 centimeter long
  to make a curls. Using the scissor just slide it through like the picture above.
stick the curls in each angle using the tape
Put the bow on the center
 This is what it looks like afterwards. Very easy doesn't it?

  See you again next time for more exciting tutorial.
Have a great day ahead!

  3. The bow is immaculate! It makes every gift more special and meaningful!

  4. I also do the same when I have time to do a decent gift wrapping but using only simple bows, kasi yun lang alam ko hehehe

  5. Did you made the bow? How did you do it?

  10. The ribbon is amazingly beautiful and you match the color perfectly as well:) Great job, Dai. keep it up:)

  11. Nice tutorial. The other day, I was at the gift wrapping section and I watched carefully the person doing the bag-type gift wrap. I've been figuring out how they do it for years and just the other day, ganun lang pala kadali.

  12. You really are so creative with those ribbons! I can't ever get that right myself. :)

  13. I love the bow! I basically look for paper bags when I give gifts (sobrang tamad lol) but your post inspired me to make a bonggang bonggang gift wrap!


Thanks for your comment. Have a nice day!
