Wednesday’s Wrap-it Up Blog Hop! #4

gift-wrapping

I’ve been finding so many creative ideas for wrapping presents on Pinterest!! Like last week, in this post I’ll show you the inspiration I found on Pinterest, followed by my creative version!

Please scroll down and link up your posts on wrapping presents!

Recessed Monogram

This was pretty easy to make, yet gets the “wow” factor (at least it did from my husband)! Jeromina has a great tutorial, but as I didn’t have mounting tape (and didn’t want to buy any), I slightly modified the look (sorry for the quality of photos – taken with a phone camera)

Step 1: The starting point for this is to either have your gift in a white box (it’s going to show through) or add some white wrapping paper to the top of your box (which is what I did).

Step 2: Wrap your present to find the top and center portion of the wrapping paper. Free hand the letter on the wrapping paper.

Step 3: Cut out your letter and wrap the present!

Step 4: Tape middle pieces of the letter inside (if needed).

Step 5: Show it off to your spouse or friend!

Pictures, Ribbon, and Rosette

For the next gift I combined a couple of elements from these Pinterest pictures (if you click on the pictures, they will take you to the pin on Pinterest):

I followed the tutorial at susieharrisblog to make the rosette. She makes it look so easy!! Since I used ribbon instead of fabric, I think it took a longer strand to make the same size rosette. Plus the ribbon was a bit slippery and thus harder to manage. Next time, I’m going to try using burlap!!

      I did get that reaction from some of those I gave these gifts to, but I told them that the fun was in the process!!
