gift wrap with mini flags via ANASTASIA MARIE

Those who have nightmare-ish experiences with wrapping paper, this is for you. To recreate this gift wrap idea, you’ll need the following supplies:

Kraft box
Glitter card stock in gold, bronze, and white
White glitter string

Scissors

Enclose your gift in the box and simply close the lid. That could be enough, but I don’t think so; glam it up! Cut out mini flags from the glitter card stock, varying them in length but keeping the width the same. String them in a random order (but pretty, of course) onto the glitter string and tie the loose ends of the string in the back. Done!

gift wrap: pink bloom via ANASTASIA MARIE

I personally never liked the color pink, but when it comes to paper flowers, pink just seems to give the right amount of pop without going overboard. In this case, I’d call it the pink of peonies. To recreate this gift wrap idea, you’ll need the following supplies:

White and kraft polka dot wrapping paper (I found this one at Target)
Pink cardstock
Green cardstock
White iridescent twine
Gray shimmer paint

Double-sided tape
Scissors
Glue
Puff tape

Start by wrapping your gift with the wrapping paper and sealing with the double-sided tape. Take your twine and wrap it around the box a few times; secure in the back with a knot. Now take your pink cardstock and cut out three flower petal shapes. I chose a six petal silhouette and cut out all three in different sizes. It creates the best layered look that way. Secure them together with a dab of glue, layering them by size — and then dab a bit of your paint on top of the assembled flower in the middle to complete the bloom. Next, cut out a leaf silhouette from the green cardstock. Use puff tape to secure the leaf and the bloom onto the wrapped gift and now you’re ready to roll! If you wanted to, you can also add a burlap gift tag for the final finish.

gift wrap: itty flag // by ANASTASIA MARIE

This gift wrap idea is for you glitter lovers. To recreate this look, you’ll need the following supplies:

White wrapping paper
Chunky glitter (shown in iridescent)
Glitter tape (shown in lavender)
Wood pick

Double-sided tape
ModPodge (for paper)
Foam brush
Scissors
X-acto knife

As usual, start by wrapping your gift in the wrapping paper and seal with the double-sided tape. Using your foam brush, spread the glue in a wave like swooshes across the paper. Cover in the glitter, let sit for a bit, and then shake off the excess.

Cut a length of the glitter tape and fold over the wood pick. Trim the edge if you’re like for an extra touch. Take your knife and carefully cut two slits into the top of the wrapped gift. Use the knife’s edge to guide the flag pick through both slits, going under first and then over. And you’re done!
