Gift Wrapping

During weddings, the bride and the groom are not the only receivers of gifts. A considerate couple thinks of appropriate gifts to give to the principal sponsors and members of the wedding entourage.

Below are two ways by which you can dress up your gifts.

Here’s what you need:

  • Wrapping paper
  • A pair of scissors
  • Double-sided tape
  • Glue gun
  • Glue stick
  • Jewel stickers
  • Puncher
  • Washi tapes
  • Buttons and acrylic jewels
  • Boxes
  • Cupcake liners

Here’s how to do it.

Version 1

Step 1:   Put the gift inside a box. Cut the wrapping paper according to size.

Step 2:   Use double-sided tape on the wrapper to secure the gift.

Step 3:   Start sticking washi tapes on one side. Add washi tapes according to your preference and design. Place a “thank-you” card.

Bespoke Tip: Always place your gift inside a box. Assign your coordinator to distribute the gifts on your behalf. If you haven’t hired one, ask your bridesmaids to do this task.
