It is always pleasant not only to receive, but also to give gifts, and a gift made by your own hands, and even packaged independently, is much more pleasant in all respects. But we talked about gifts themselves in other articles, today we will try to decide on the packaging. How and what to make of it.
Almost any gift will fit in the original box. To make a box on your own does not require much effort, mainly use craft paper or cardboard. There are plenty of templates for box patterns in the vast, you can find non-standard shapes. It’s better not to download the template, but draw it yourself, since the size of the package according to the finished template may not match the size of your gift. The design of the packaging is at your discretion, you can come up with something of your own or use any style. For example, at this time, the eco-style is popular, as well as minimalism and futurism.
Another type of paper packaging is not corrugated paper, but corrugated, which is easy to shape. It is very convenient to use corrugated paper to pack gifts such as bottles, flower vases or figurines. Quite often, one sheet of paper is not enough to wrap the whole gift at once, so you have to use several papers, and camouflage the joints with ribbons, bows and other decorations. Beads and rhinestones are perfectly glued to the paper, so the packaging is very easy to make beautiful and original.
Organza and film
Organza packaging also looks very beautiful, the fabric is durable and holds its shape well, so using ribbons or colored yarn you can easily create the desired shape. You can buy fabric in specialized stores or in the market, it is inexpensive. An analogue of the fabric is packaging film, which can be bought in office supplies or in stores for goods for creativity. Transparent packaging always looks beautiful, and to improve the effect it can be decorated, thereby hiding the contents, while maintaining the intrigue.
Suppose you have prepared a small but valuable gift, some ring or a beautiful pendant, but there were no boxes for it. An ordinary walnut will help you. The most difficult thing here is to carefully crack it up and clean out the insides so as not to damage the shell. A cotton pad is suitable as a pad, if desired, soak it with some dye to give color. The inside of the shell can be painted with nail polish. Tie the resulting box with a ribbon with a bow.
On the Internet we find a stencil of your favorite animal of the size you need, print it out and cut it out. Better on cardboard. We bend his legs and put in them a pre-prepared gift. If there are no paws, then you can stick it. You can put a gift on the coffee table, where he will wait for the gift. Or in the morning, while the gifted one is sleeping, put the little animal next to the headband of the bed on the bedside table.
