We're all guilty of it - cutting the Christmas wrapping paper too short for the present and having to start all over again.
So this Christmas, let's get the present wrapping right and give them a boutique finish with these hints and tips from The Wrapping Paper Company - Australia's leading designer and printer of wholesale wrapping paper rolls and Belli-Bands.
"Everytime Wrapco participates in a trade fair we often hear "I wish I could wrap as well as that", said The Wrapping Paper Company general manager Jarrod Dam.
The key to wrapping the perfect present is:
- Always try to use good quality Australian designed and manufactured gift wrap
- Cut the paper to the correct size (too much paper creates a badly wrapped present)
- Wrap your present firmly creasing edges and corners sharply for a professional finish.
Jarrod said giving your presents the wow factor can be as simple as adding a belli-band, ribbon or other little add-ons like bells.
"Having mastered wrapping a perfect gift you are now ready to move on to the next step," said Jarrod.
"Wrapco developed in Australia the Belli-Band™ concept over 10 years ago.
"A simple and fantastic product, the Belli-Band adds an inexpensive contrasting highlight to a wrapped gift that immediately lifts it to a new level.
"Just loop the Belli-Bands around the gift and secure it with a gift seal or good sticky tape.
"Add organza ribbon and even a 5mm curling ribbon to give that final finishing touch. Your gift wrapping will look perfect."
