How to Customize Your Gift Wrap
Kitty O’Neil: Did you have a present like when you get them wrapped at the store.
Jennifer O’Neil: I love the way they add something extra to the outside.
Kitty O’Neil: Like little ornaments.
Jennifer O’Neil: Or a monogram.
Kitty O’Neil: Whether they’re simple or a made it’s all about the embellishment.
Jennifer O’Neil: And we’re going to show you some tips and tricks for adding tags and toppers to the outside of your packages to get them a little personal flair.
Kitty O’Neil: To make our prettiest in peacock embellishment we’re going to start with some beautiful wrap.
Jennifer O’Neil: We like this foil wrap because it creases really nicely along the edges and also has very pretty texture. We also like to mix metallic. So we’re going to add a little metallic embellishment.
Kitty O’Neil: This is called doily. It is going to go right on top of our package and you might think to center it but what we did is shift it just slightly over and went around the corner like this.
Jennifer O’Neil: It adds just a little RT touch.
Kitty O’Neil: And then we’re going to tack the sides down with a little hot glue.
Jennifer O’Neil: And you can just put a little bit of hot glue under this edge and be careful when you press it down because it’s hot and just sort of tack it all the way around.
Kitty O’Neil: And don’t forget the back.
Jennifer O’Neil: Then we’re going to add the peacock feathers
Kitty O’Neil: So we found five peacock feathers in that little floral poke and we cut them all to the same height and we’re just going to fan them out on top of the gold doily and then we’re just going to put a dab of hot glue underneath each eye to hold the peacock feather down.
Jennifer O’Neil: And again you don’t want to add a lot of hot glue because it could come through the feather. We love the way the colors of the peacock feathers really pop against that gold especially with the purple foil.
Kitty O’Neil: It’s beautiful, the last one. Then we’re going to add a multi loop bow and we’re going to put it right here and it will cover up that area we’re all of the peacock feathers come together, we’re going to get a dab of a hot glue.
Jennifer O’Neil: So you don’t always have to tie on your ribbons, you can hot glue them too.
Kitty O’Neil: This is looking beautiful/
Jennifer O’Neil: And now we’re going to add a little personal touch with this embosser.
Kitty O’Neil: This comes with custom and search we ordered one that says we wish you a Merry Christmas from the O’Neil Family. It could be used for any special occasion or even for the holidays.
Jennifer O’Neil: And you just press down like that and it comes with gold seals and silver seals and then we’re just going to peel it off like this and place it on our package.
Kitty O’Neil: And I think they’ll be great.
Jennifer O’Neil: Like that you think?
Kitty O’Neil: Yeah. That’s such a nice finishing touch.
Jennifer O’Neil: We’d love this package especially for Christmas time. People love to get presents that have a little personalization on the outside.
Kitty O’Neil: It shows you add a little extra thought and care when you wrap the present.
Jennifer O’Neil: Like on this one we spelled out the name Jacob on the tag.
Kitty O’Neil: And instead of gluing on the letters we found the paper tag or which is a great little tool tag embellishments to your guests. This paper tagger is a cool tool. It’s just like a device they use at the store for price tags on clothes. This needle pokes right through the ribbon and then these little tags are fed down into the shaft and then they squeeze the trigger and voila, your tag is instantly on your package. Another great way to precise a package is with the huge monogram like this and it has eyelids right here so they can see it’s a great place to use the paper tagger.
I’m just going to put my hands behind the ribbon and I’m going to poke the needle through the eyelid and the ribbon. I’m going to squeeze the trigger. I hear the clicks so I know at the other end is on the other side of the ribbon and that tag is on. Then we do it too this side to and there’s our letter tag right on to our package.
