This year I’ve had a little extra time on my hands during the holiday season. Typically we would be running from Christmas party to Christmas party and traveling across the country to visit clients. With all this extra time on my hands, I decided to start a new “tradition” if you will or maybe it’s more of a lifestyle habit. That is to wrap each Christmas gift with coordinated wrapping paper, ribbons, and even add pinecone embellishments for that extra festive look. I also set a rule for myself of no gift bags! This is a strict rule and one that I must follow (mostly kidding).
2020 has been a year of learning new things. I’ve started to slow down a little and focus my free time on more creative outlets, such as this blog! And although coordinated wrapping paper and bows seem small, it has given me a little sense of control back for this year and a fun creative outlet to learn new wrapping paper techniques including the one that I will share with you today. I have always wanted to know how to tie a ribbon so you don’t get that weird lump on the bottom of the gift boxes. You know what I’m talking about…? After watching a few tutorials online, thanks to YouTube, I figured out how to tie the famous Tiffany Bow. I’ve always called it a retail bow, but it’s where the ribbons on the bottom of your package lay flat and look… well it looks just perfect.
