^ It's from this origami box book. If I find it, I'll scan the directions and maybe you can try it. For now, here's a easy box that people can try for Christmas! http://sunnisan.com/crafts/giftbox.html I made a few of those for Halloween treats recyling magazine ads.

This month's issue of Aus. Vogue has all these gift wrapping ideas and all the papers and ribbons and all are so pretty... I need to get me to a paper shop! I have a tonne of ideas for cards and such for the upcoming festive season...

Another wrapping fiend here...

Recently I've been using magazines to kind of decoupage gift boxes...

But a while ago I got some small, wooden animals, and I also had a flat, square gift. So I wrapped it in a plain paper, then got two different colors of crepe paper and wove them across the package to create a checkerboard effect. I placed the animals on top...like a weird chess set.

It looked better than it sounds

HOW TO TIE THE PERFECT BOW
source | martha stewart


1. Pass ribbon over & under box & back up sides. Thread both ends under top ribbon.
2. Tie a left-over-right half-knot, then shape two even loops.
3. Cross right loop over left. Thread right loop behind left, under, and up through hole.
4. Pull loops into a smooth knot. Adjust loops; trims tails to be slightly longer than loops.

sometimes all you need is a very pretty box
or pretty paper/fabric to wrap the present in

i've been noticing a lot of the high-end shops give really really pretty paper bags with tissue paper inside for whatever you've bought (sometimes i won't even care for whatever my brother has bought, and take the paper bag and tissue instead!)... i would just use them the way they are

here are two from Louis Vuitton

(if you want the really large versions of these pictures, just let me know
they are much nicer up close.. you can see the texture and shine of the papers!)

This thread is wicked! I love wrapping gifts, although I'm not as creative as the posters of this thread!

I also have a weird obsession with packaging and gift wrap/bags. Sometimes, I'll buy something in a store just to get the bag and reuse it and make it my own as a gift bag. LOL.
