An exploration in creative gift-wrapping

We love having wrap-tastical days here at Hallmark. Gina B., lead designer for the new everyday giftwrap collection, gathered a bunch of Hallmarkers together from different areas in the company to wrap, trim, and tag gifts of all sizes.

At the start of the workshop we spent a couple of hours combining bows and bits, trims, tags, and tissues in all kinds of ways. This is how it turned out…

Bet D. made a fun fringe with the polka-dot tissue and used it as trim for this package.

As if a pompom isn’t perfect all by itself, Laura L. made it three times as special by placing it on top of the black and white paper band. The band is the reverse of the white paper with black dots.

She used double stick tape to add the pink ribbon to the backside of the paper band and wrapped it around the package to create several different polka-dot layers.

Why go with just one tissue? Two different colors or patterns make a great finish to Alyissa J.’s bag.

Sometimes, it’s the simplest combinations that make the best presentations.

Patty R. used polka-dotted paper and then added a touch of gold. Classy! She topped it off with a pop of color, which is a great thing about using black and white because everything goes with it – even Patty’s striped shirt!

Margaret S. made a bow out of the same reversible wrap she used to wrap the gift. We love how the pink peeks through the open spaces of the bow!

Check out this balloon bouquet made with honeycomb trims and baker’s twine. More reversible wrap was used for the bow.

And as you can see, adding baker’s twine to a package is a nice finishing touch!
