Choose A Key Piece
Start by picking a piece that will inspire the overall look of your masterpiece, it doesn’t matter if it’s the wrapping paper, ribbon, card, or topper. What’s important is that you really like it, appropriate for the occasion and somehow relates to the recipient of the present.
Build Your Other Wrapping Materials Around Your Key Piece
Now that you have your main piece, time to choose the supporting materials in order to wrap your gift. What you should not forget here is that these other materials should complement or work with the main piece. This means you have to have an idea, theme or motif that you wanna go for. If it’s a Christmas gift, then you probably should be working around with colors red and green, and toppers like snowflakes or tiny Christmas balls.
Mind The Colors Of The Materials That You’re Getting
A gift looks more well though and put together if the colors of the materials that you used for wrapping goes along well with each other. While not all of us may have an eye for color coordination and time to study all of it, there are websites that may help you figure out which hues to go for. They have palettes laid out for you, and you just have to pick.
Keep Proportions In Mind
You don’t want to make your gift overwhelming by using toppers that are almost as big as the box. But you don’t want the topper to look out of place if you use too small. So the idea is to make sure that you balance every material. Not just the size, but the color and contrast as well.
On The Other Hand…
If you don’t have the time and patience for all of these, you may opt for luxury gift wrapping services online. Or you may ask a friend or family if they know any in your town; at least this will ensure you that you’ll get everything right. And more importantly, the person you’ll be giving your gift to, will love it.
