‘Tis the season to wrap my friends, so below are my two How-To videos.  I would make new ones, but since they ain’t broke, and have 500k views, I’m keeping these guys alive.  I’m so glad to know you find them helpful.

I love getting pics of your pretty packages, so when you’re done send me some.  They always make me smile :)

WRAPPING THE BOX PROPERLY

MAKING THE BIG BOW

 

In order to make this bow, it’s crucial you buy the right ribbon:

 

I buy C&G ribbon from the Container Store.  The seem to sell it in TONS of colors online now, but the brand isn’t marked.  I would call customer service first just to make sure you’re getting the right one.  Either in the store or online, you’ll notice it’s pricey, but the spool goes a long way.

Another source for ribbon is Costco.  Buy the thicker ribbon with wire in it and you can make the same bows.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me: mary@morethanmary.com.  I’d also LOVE to see how it goes for you.  Send me pics of your pretty packages!

In the first video, I show you how to put the paper on the package properly.  You’ll see how to make two different bows in the second video.  Hope this is helpful!

Then this to make the big, beautiful bow:

I use C & G Satin ribbon in two sizes.  You can order it online here, but it takes up to five weeks to ship. I always buy it at The Container Store.

 

And thank @terryattootsies for passing down her master skills!

I’m a huge believer in presentation. A nice package shows you care, no matter what’s inside.
