Crown Jewels – Decorate Gifts with Ornaments
Anyone familiar with my designs noticed that I usually don’t decorate gifts with bows. I used to think that for a gift wrap to look like a gift, it had to have a big bow centered in the middle of the box. Although I have some designs on my with large fluffy bows, I have changed my style to use things other bows to accent my gifts. It also takes so much ribbon to make a big bow that adds to the cost of gift wrapping. I feel that there are so many more interesting and unique items that can be used to embellish a gift.
I love to decorate gifts with ornaments. I find inexpensive ornaments at the craft store to create an elegant and dramatic gift wrap. It also becomes part of the gift because it can be used as a real ornament after the present is opened. Also, if you are changing your treeÂ decor,Â Â you can use ornaments you already have to add to the gifts. The nice thing about using an ornament as the accent piece is you donâ€™t have to do much else to decorate the gift. In this design, I just layered some pieces of decorative paper and you have a beautiful gift that will definitely impress the recipient.
