Making present wrapping more interesting

30 Aug

Gift boxes and tags for handmade presents

Whilst out buying a present for a friend, I found these mini suitcases in Tiger and thought they would make a more interesting gift box than the usual plain box.  I picked out a contrasting tissue paper and used it to wrap each of the individual gifts in the boxes.

I really like the look of the dotty tissue paper vs the striped boxes with clashing colours.  I also made the gift tags to tie in with the theme, an idea from Creature Comforts but instead of fabric scraps I used origami paper from Muji.

Although slightly tricky to send in the post I will definitely be looking for more inventive wrapping than the standard box from now on.
