Wrap It Up: 100s of Fast, Fun, and Festive Gift Wrapping Ideas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wrap It Up offers hundreds of clever and inviting ideas to give your presents an extra flourish that loved ones are sure to appreciate. Using both traditional wrapping paper and ribbons, combined with some simple trims found in craft or stationery stores or unusual materials like maps, posters, cellophane, or newspaper, there is a wide range of inviting schemes for all occasions. With inspired color combinations and clever use of materials now you can bring a decorative touch to even the simplest package.

Instead of using ribbons for bows, try reusing materials found around the home like twine, buttons, decorative buckles, scarves, or even dog collars. Anything can be used as an unexpected decoration. There are also traditional ribbon-wrapped and flower-bedecked packages, but done in a unique manner with ideas that you dont see elsewhere, like threading buttons through the ribbons before tying them around the packages, or wrapping a strip of torn newspaper around the middle of the package, under an elegantly tied bow, for an interesting and striking effect. With Wrap it Up you can turn even the most ordinary gifts into something special: a unique present for someone you care about.
