A Passion for Giving

Good things come in creative packages!

Good things come in creative packages! Keep it simple and innovative, and you'll discover the real gift is seeing the look on their faces.

Can It!

Purchase empty paint cans and hot glue a colourful array of plastic balls embellished with ribbon. They make the perfect vessel to camouflage gifts. Place a bike lock or bell for a new bike, or keys to a new car! Fill it with baked goods, jewelry, or tickets to a show. The ideas are endless! Attach a paint can opener for easy access to the treasure.

Dress to Impress!

Here are a few easy tips to wrapping gifts. It doesn't take any more time and the results are worth it.

• Cut the paper to fit the gift. Too much paper will create bulky, messy folds.

• Before you tape, always fold the outside edge under to make a neat, professional edge.

To fold the ends, start with the top edge, then the two sides.

Fold a bit of the bottom edge to create a clean edge before taping it to the top fold

Run your fingers along all edges to create crisp lines

Think outside the gift box and embellish the top. We used a mesh ribbon that is easy to work with.
