simple valentine gift wrap // ANASTASIA MARIE

Not all gift wrapping should be complicated. Many times, it’s just easier to buy something readymade than make it all yourself. Today’s gift wrap is Valentine related and super duper simple. Here’s what you need:

Kraft box
White wrapping paper
Gold dot white velvet ribbon
Glittered wood tag
Gold string

Tape
Scissors

After your box is wrapped in the wrapped paper, tie the ribbon around the box and secure the gift tag with the gold string. What can be more easy than that? I just added these glittered tags into the shop. You can choose from four patterns and two glitter sizes. Hooray!

heart confetti gift wrap // valentine's day // anastasia marie blog

With Valentine’s Day coming up, let’s get you started thinking about wrapping that gift to your love. Hearts are a basic staple ingredient when it comes to valentine’s gift wrap, and this one is full of it. Here’s what you need to recreate this look:

Kraft box
White mulberry wrapping paper (the one I used had flecks of silver tinsel woven in, how pretty!)
Red, pink, and white tissue paper (my pink and white had silver confetti embedded in, which made it look more fun)
White glitter velvet ribbon

ModPodge
Foam brush
Small heart paper punch (mine)
Tape
Scissors

Start by punching out lots of heart confetti from the three colors of tissue paper. Vary the amounts of each color to your style. Once done, wrap your boxed gift in the mulberry paper and secure with tape. Dip your foam brush into the ModPodge and apply a thin layer across the top of your wrapped gift. I chose to do a diagonal sweep to showcase the pretty mulberry paper, but where you want the hearts is all up to you. Next, scatter your tissue hearts on top and pat down to secure. Shake off any loose ones and then repeat with another layer of hearts. Once the hearts dry, knot a piece of the ribbon on top. If you want, you can slide a translucent mini envelope with a card inside under the ribbon.

glittered holly leaves gift wrap // ANASTASIA MARIE

Gold glitter will always be Christmas’ good friend — and holly. To recreate this look, you’ll need:

Kraft box
Pale gold wrapping paper
Faux silk holly
Chunky gold glitter
Fine gold glitter
Gold Sharpie
Red + gold ribbon
Gold glitter string

Mounting tape
ModPodge
Scissors
Tape

Trim a two-piece leaf section from your silk holly. Apply ModPodge over the top of each leaf, glittering one leaf with the chunky glitter and the other with the fine glitter. Let dry overnight.

Meantime, wrap your gift in the wrapping paper and wind the ribbon around it three times. Secure in the back with a small knot. Once the glittered leaves are dry, take your Sharpie and doodle over the plastic stem until what was once green is now a pretty gold. Cut strips of mounting tape and place on the backside of each leaf, then adhere the leaves onto the wrapped gift. Tie a piece of glitter string on the stem and you’re done!

paper poinsettia gift wrap via ANASTASIA MARIE

Poinsettias are well known as the flower of Christmas. It’s my first time putting one in my own home and I was inspired to create a paper version for one of my gift wrap posts. To recreate this look, you’ll need the following:

Kraft box
White + gold dotted wrapping paper
Berry red cardstock
Emerald green cardstock
Golden yellow cardstock
Gold tinsel
Berry red washi tape (if desired to prettify the wrapping paper flaps)

Glue
Mounting tape
Scissors
Tape

Start by cutting out two poinsettia silhouettes from the red cardstock, one smaller and slightly varied from the other. Then cut leaves from the green and seven small circles from the yellow. Glue the two poinsettia together and slightly bend the petals up to create definition. Glue the leaves on the back and arrange the circles in the middle of the poinsettia.

After your box is wrapped in the wrapping paper, wind the tinsel around the box three times and secure on the bottom with a small knot. Cut itty strips of mounting tape and place two pieces in between the strands of tinsel. Add another layer or two of the mounting tape until your “mound” is just as tall as your tinsel. Secure the paper poinsettia on the tape.

gift wrap: mandarin leaves via ANASTASIA MARIE

This one is for all you mandarin lovers. I eat the fruit day in and day out during wintertime and it’s only fair that I dedicate a gift wrap post to one of the best things about winter. Here’s what you need to recreate this look:

Kraft box
Speckled white wrapping paper
Mandarin leaves (fresh is best because it’s not so fragile, but I’m using dried ones and they still look beautiful)
Chunky glitter in a gold/silver mix
Wide gold mesh ribbon
Gold glitter string
Green glitter string
Silver glitter string

ModPodge
Foam brush
Scissors
Tape

Wrap the kraft box in the wrapping paper. Wrap a piece of the wide gold ribbon around the box and secure the two ends on the back with a touch of glue. Let dry before flipping over. While it’s drying, apply some glue to the curled edges of the mandarin leaves. Top off with glitter and shake off the excess. Let dry.

When the wide ribbon has set, take a piece of each of the three glitter strings and wrap once around the box, layering over the wide ribbon. Secure each strand on the back with a small knot. Once the leaves have dried, glue them them onto the top of the box over the layered ribbon and voila, you are done!
