A timeless elegance is created in the classic style of antique wedding gowns and floral arrangements. This vintage look was created with the beautiful Lace Cutworks gift wrap and light and airy cream Satin Sheer Ribbon. Silk flowers in matching tones are added to accent this stunning gift decoration.
Materials Used for the Vintage Wedding Gift Designs:
- Lace Borders Gift Wrap
- 1-1/2″ Cream Satin Wired Satin Edge Organza Ribbon
- Large cream fabric roses and satin wedding flowers, stems removed
- Small cream and powder pink flowers
- Craft glue (for securing ribbon)
- Glue gun (for attaching flowers)
- Double-Sided Tape
- White Embossed Swirl Jewelry Boxes
- White Gift Boxes
To create the Large Gift Box design shown above:
- Wrap a box in Lace Cutworks Gift Wrap.
- Cut a piece of Organza Ribbon long enough to wrap around the entire box 2 times.
Note: Ribbon measurements are approximate. The lengths may have to be adjusted slightly based on the size of the box used.
- Centering the ribbon on the bottom of the box, bring the both sides of the ribbon to the center top of the box and tie in a knot.
- Trim the ends to matching lengths, cutting them into a V and bending them to form a nice shape.
- Using a glue gun, apply glue to the bottom of one of the large flowers and attach to the box on top of the ribbon, at a slight angle near the knot, on the side without the tails. Repeat on the opposite side of the box with the remaining large flower.
- Apply glue to the end of a bunch of small flowers and slide under one of the large flowers between the flower and the ribbon tails. Repeat with the other bunches of small flowers on all sides of the gift.
Note: You can add small amounts of craft glue on the ribbon tails to attach them to the box so they will hold their shape.
