THE PERFECT PRESENT
My Mom instilled in me that presentation is everything. Every gift she has ever given has been beautifully wrapped. People ooo and aaahh for at least a minute over the bow and wonder how on earth she could create it. The wrapping in itself is half of the gift. Now, I am passing her tricks of the trade on to you!
In this video, I show you how to properly wrap a gift and make a beautiful bow.
The key to a pretty package is having quality paper and ribbon. Paper is easier to find, but the only ribbon I use for the above bow is C&G (Pattern 800 Satin). At
Crate and Barrel The Container Store or Michael’s it will run you $10-15 a spool, online I found it for $6.
You can stop at the bow, but I like adding fresh or silk flowers to complete the look.
(Apologies for the production value. We shot this on the floor of TMI and used poor Megan as a tripod.)
