What you need:
A gift wrapped with brown wrapping paper
Pencil and markers
After wrapping up your gift with brown wrapping paper. Start by placing ribbon around the gift. Make sure it is able to wrap all the way around. Then, stick it to the back with the glue gun.
To start the bow, use a length of around 12 to 13 inches.
Fold at the back and seal it with a glue gun.
The bow should be like this when pressed this way.
Apply glue gun inside the center and hold for a few seconds until it’s glued together and dry. Clean up the excess strands of glue if there are any.
Cut off a ¾ inch strap of ribbon
Wrap the ¾ inch ribbon over the center of the bow. Glue it to the bow with the glue gun.
Finally, stick it on the top of the ribbon, wrapped on the gift box.
Brent and I celebrated our 5-year wedding anniversary this month, so I wrote “Fifth Year” on the top of the gift wrap. You may try writing your husband’s name, anniversary date, or inspiring words instead of your anniversary year. If you are not comfortable doing handwritten words like this, you may find a font that you like. Then, simply print the word/s and trace it by shading at the back of it with a pencil.
Brown wrapping paper or kraft paper is my favorite option for gift wrapping, whether it’s for holiday gifts, birthdays, or anniversaries. By adding some accents, it makes the gift wrap more interesting and exciting.
