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.)
