Animal Inspired Ribbon and Gift Wrapping Ideas

For many, the best ideas and inspiration comes from their beloved pets, so I’ve decided to dedicate a blog post to Animal inspired ribbon and gift wrapping ideas. Whether you have dogs, cats, horses or chickens we have some great ideas lined up.

cat and dog ribbons

I’ve always been surrounded by animals being a farmers daughter and designed a controversial pet ribbon collection back in 2012. Sadly it was copied by our British manufacturer and is still talked about

Even at a young age I gave my dog birthday presents, and locals thought we were barking mad when we had a doggy fancy dress birthday party for owners at their muts.

My late labrador Margo couldn’t resist being a Gift Wrapping assistant and loved course days where she would be wandering around the studio

Anyone who is crafty is always looking for new and creative ways to make their gifts, from the present itself all the way to the finishing touches of the wrapping paper and ribbons. When picking out the gift-wrap and choosing the design of the packaging, it’s always good to keep the recipient’s personality in mind. For example, if your father is a car enthusiast, you can personalise the present with a ‘car design’ wrapping paper and a wide black paper band to make it look like a road. It’s all about knowing your audience.

If the recipient is a child, a fun theme to incorporate into gift-wrapping is animal shapes. Rather than using paper with dogs and cats on them, incorporate your origami skills into the gift to mimic animal silhouettes. Children love presents from the get go, but taking the time to add something special on the outside of the gifts will give them more joy than a toy that’s simply been placed in a gift bag. You can find DIY animal wrapping ideas on Pinterest and various blogs, though if you’re looking for a tutorial easy enough to get your kids involved in wrapping a friend’s birthday present, Mr. Printables makes use of white paper so that toddlers can paint the paper according to the animals they prefer.

Another great animal box design you can experiment with is a gift box that locks the paper in with ears as tabs. As shown on Line Across, this gift-wrap is reusable and just as fun to put together as the previous wrapping idea.

Despite these DIY wrapping ideas seeming like they only work for kids, they can actually be applied to anyone who loves animals, or that is generally young at heart. With so many adults fascinated with brands like Hello Kitty and playing games with cute and cuddly themes, lots of people will appreciate a person putting in the effort to make the gift’s presentation as adorable as the example shown above.

We also love these gifts for our beloved pets…

Wrapping a Wedding Gift and making it stand out on the present table

With Summer here and your close friends tying the knot, it’s your chance to be Wrapping a Wedding Gift and making it stand out, making the special couple feel rewarded. Even if you’re giving money or a voucher, we can make your gift look fabulous on the present table.

Arranging a wedding can be a joy but it also involves a lot of hard work, coordinating, planning and organising.  Each bride is the proverbial graceful swan, paddling away like crazy, to ensure that everything appears perfect.  Extensive effort is invested in colour schemes, dress designs, fabrics, flowers, table arrangements, stationery designs, favours, photography, menus, venues and honeymoon plans, to list but a few ‘things to do’….

gift wrapped wedding

As a guest, turning up beautifully turned out is a courteous duty to your, no doubt, immaculately polished hosts and, after you have been invited to share this precious and poignant moment in their lives, to observe, dine and celebrate, it is a wonderful gesture to, not merely give a considered gift but to present or, indeed, have delivered, a perfectly and elegantly embellished feast for the eyes, in the form of a thoughtfully wrapped and individually outstanding present.

The bride will appreciate such a wonderful gesture, as she has, no doubt, spent many months, at the very least, considering every last detail of every last minute of this very special occasion.

Salmon Ribbon by Jane Means

Your gift may not be the most expensive or flamboyant but it can be remembered for being the most perfectly packaged and for being the gift the happy couple least wanted to open because the wrapping was so utterly charming.

Sometimes it all comes down to the intricate detailing and sometimes simplicity stands out…

Japanese Pleating.
Just as pin-tucked, fine silk pleating adds detailed embellishment to an elegant wedding gown, once mastered, this simple paper-folding technique adds intriguing intricacy and individuality to your wrapped wedding gift.  If the bride’s colour choices are known, carefully selected papers and ribbons can also compliment her colour scheme.

Papers by Fox and Lark
Sage Ribbon by Jane Means

Joining Papers.
Just as the happy couple will be joining their hands in marriage, two contrasting papers can be used to wrap their wedding gift.  Cover the join with a good quality ribbon, tied in a bow, that may secure two small rings (curtain rings look effective, fresh or dried flowers or, if it is appropriate, a pendant in the shape of a cross.

 

Giftwrapped - Champagne bottle, step 8

Champagne.
A very special bottle of wine or good quality champagne makes a lovely wedding gift but many people tie a tag to the neck of the bottle and stop there.  We can do much better than that!  With contrasting tissue papers, shiny cellophane, ribbon and the accessories of sparkly confetti or flower stems, a bottle can become an ornamental vase of a gift.  A generous helping of confetti between the tissue paper and cellophane adds real sparkle to your champagne!

 

map gift wrapping

 

Fern Stripe Ribbon by Jane Means

Theming.
Perhaps the happy couple are adventurous travellers and a more personalised gift wrapping style would really appeal to them… Do you know where they are going on their honeymoon?  If so, use a map of that destination to wrap your gift, ribbons of that country’s flag and a card-backed photograph or postcard of the location as a gift tag.

 

wedding gift wrapping

Boxed simplicity.
Simple boxes are perfect to be dressed for a wedding celebration.  With wedding veil net wrapped around and secured with a bunch of faux roses, an ornate broach or adapted hairclip or piece of jewelry, they look dramatic and yet are very quick to wrap.  A generous, soft lining of contrasting tissue paper also adds a little richness to whatever delights lie inside the box.

Glitter Paper by Marshalls

For the bride who loves bling!  Wrapping your gift in sumptuous velvet will immediately make it stand out from the crowd.  Jewel colours of emerald green, amethyst purple or ruby red will add to the drama and, tied with a matching metallic edged, wide wire ribbon bow and dressed with lots of wired cut glass and metallic beads, your gift will have glamour and beg for the spotlight. I also love to wrap wedding gifts in bling paper and this glitter one was a remnant from Christmas. With a rich embellishment added your gift will look a million dollars.

wedding wrapped gifts

Romantic silk, pink and pearls.  A parcel presented, wrapped in light pink silk in combination with a pretty floral, pleated paper, tied with darker pink ribbon and entwined and draped with strings of pretty bridal pearls will look innocent and sweet.  Remnants of fabric can be purchased cheaply and make great wrapping for many occasions.  Add a sprig of pink and cream flowers to this gift box for extra femininity and romance. You can even use a paper tablecloth and netting as I have done here.

marbled paper

 

 

Rossi Marbled Paper by Jane Means

This luxurious Rossi marbled paper is perfectly suited to a wedding gift’s presentation.  The rich texture and variegated colours of this Italian, handmade and unique paper can be complimented with green or pink ribbon. This is a great look for a Winter wedding too.

muted ribbons floral s

 

Ribbons by Jane Means

Plain brown paper dressed up for the occasion with grosgrain ribbon, and a bouquet of (artificial) flowers, proves that it is the ‘little black dress’ of the gift-wrapping world.  It may be simple, but, with the appropriate accessorizing, it works for any occasion.

Floral gift wrapping

One step beyond, you could even tie in fresh flowers such as hydrangeas on the day for that dramatic rich look

Whatever you give to the Bride and Groom, with a little thought and effort it will make them feel really special on their Wedding Day.

We’d love to hear from you if you’ve been creative with your gift wrapping too!

10 inspirational gift wrapping ideas for Dads Birthday or Fathers Day

No matter how humble the gift, dads know it is the thought that counts and so I have put together a selection of gift wrapping ideas for Dads Birthday and Fathers Day , suitable for the wide range of dads out there.

ribbon key

 

Vintage Grey Ribbon by Jane Means

Why not inject a little humour and mystery into your dad’s day by neatly wrapping his very own garden shed key in a small box.  His real gift will be wrapped and hidden inside the shed but he will have to engage in a little treasure hunt to find it!  An ideal method for the gift of gardening gloves, DIY items or, perhaps, in the shed, you have hidden a batch of dad’s favourite homemade cookies, placed in a jar, perfectly tied with beautiful ribbon in dad’s favourite colour…

Fathers Day gift wrapping

 

Brown and Orange Ribbon by Jane Means

For the dad who loves being surrounded by nature, a natural look, with hints of the countryside can be easily achieved by using traditional, rustic-looking brown paper, always a favourite of mine, and accessorizing with budding twigs, feathers, herbs or wheat.  Using herbs will also give a wonderful country garden scent to your gift

wax seal gift wrapping

 

Wax Seal by Manuscript Company          Narrow Slate Grey Stitched Ribbon by Jane Means

Dads really appreciate presents that have a personalized or signature element to them and so, for the ‘city gent’ dad, what about using the Financial Times as wrapping paper, add a formal looking ribbon and complete your smart wrapping by adding a wax seal for a very sophisticated look.

Hamper gift wrapping

 

True, plants and contents from Clifton Nurseries

Who does not love to receive a hamper full of goodies?!  Make your dad feel special with a mini-hamper packed full of tempting treats and, perhaps, his favourite tipple.  In a simple rustic basket, wrapped with raffia or ribbon and, by tying in wooden cutlery, a napkin or a bottle opener, your dad may not have to leave his chair for many happy hours on Father’s Day!  Sitting on a ruffled bed of tissue paper, olive or preserve filled jars and bags of delicious fudge or chocolates can be tied with ribbon, whilst further specifically selected surprises lurk beneath, making dad feel pampered.

 

Rossi paper

 

Paper by Rossi

For many dads, cars are a favourite topic of conversation and this beautifully coloured and elegant ‘car design’ wrapping paper by Rossi is ideal to wrap a car enthusiast’s Father’s Day gift!  A wide black paper band wrapped around the box provides a road and the addition of a small car model, preferably dad’s favourite, adds the personal touch.  When in doubt, a red sports car usually does the trick!   A nice new bottle of car shampoo could be the perfect accompaniment to such packaging and would also provide dad with something to do too!

There are lots of DIY enthusiasts out there and dads who prize their ever-increasing collection of tools would, no doubt, appreciate the time taken to create a personalized ribbon with tiny nuts and bolts attached.  Combined with brown wrapping paper and, with small wrenches, spanners or screwdrivers tied securely into the bow, the perfect gift inside would be a super-duper shiny new tool for dad’s collection

Randomly scattering and colour- copied, traditional playing cards can produce a very striking,  black, white and red design, which many poker, gin rummy and bridge playing dads alike would appreciate.   Matching with black and red ribbons and using a paper-backed playing card as a gift tag produces a personally themed and very attractive gift box.  The king of hearts might be a good card to ‘play’ as the gift tag for Father’s Day.

map gift wrapping

 

Petrol Blue Stitched Ribbon by Jane Means – Vintage Maps bought at Portobello Market, London

For the dad who travels with work or simply loves to travel, using old or photocopied maps for wrapping paper and gift tags produces a very personalized gift.  Choose a map featuring a country or city that is special to your dad and, for extra detail, select a ribbon bearing the colours of that country’s flag.  The map may bring back shared memories of a family holiday,  be of a place you know your dad longs to visit or, perhaps, the gift inside is evocative of that country’s culture…

The well-groomed dads, who love the feel of a crisp, white shirt and a good suit might like their Father’s Day present wrapped in glossy editorial pages, depicting smart, fashionable menswear.   Select a ribbon that compliments your improvised wrapping paper and replace the bow with a Windsor knot to add a ‘dad-approved’ smartness to the way his gift is ‘tied’!  If I may be so bold, ties of red, purple and shades of blue are considered to be the most positive colours to wear…

burgundy stitched ribbon by jane means

 

Burgundy Ribbon by Jane Means – Music Paper from Les Puces, Paris

If music is one of your dad’s greatest interests, then wrap the Father’s Day gift he will love in the music he loves.  Antique sheet music can be found in charity shops and at flea markets and may also be photocopied onto new paper of your own selection.  Small rolled up scrolls of music and a contrasting ribbon results in a most elegantly presented gift, which is personalized to your dad’s musical taste.

 

Alternatively, you could use plain or traditional brown paper and aesthetically position selected handwritten song lyrics onto the gift box after wrapping.  Black writing on cream paper and white writing on black paper are two of the many possible options.   Handwriting also adds another personal touch. Personally I love understated and classic Monochrome.

Black gift wrapping

 

Black and White Dotty Ribbon by Jane Means - Black paper by Paperchase

Gifts offered with thoughtful, creative and personal touches are, I believe, always the best ones, as they come straight from the heart, and Father’s Day or a special birthday is a perfect opportunity to show that it is not about the size of the gift but about the size of the heart that gives it.

Happy Wrapping!

An insight in to our Australian Gift Wrapping Courses in Melbourne & Sydney

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks for me as I headed back to run some gift wrapping courses and giftwrapped book signing events in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia

Giftwrapped book Australia

After a brief weekend enjoying the sights of Sydney, I headed to Melbourne to the upmarket district of Toorak.

Melbourne cityscape

I had a great time hosting a ladies lunch, book signing and gift wrapping course for 30 at the Manhattan restaurant. Dee and Isabelle, the two lovely organisers did a fantastic job putting it all together and I met some wonderful people.

Tables were beautifully decorated with Vibrant Green Pom Poms, Fresh Flowers, Party Boxes and Polka dot napkins complimenting rich white linens.

Melbourne Gift Wrapping Class

Several days later I hosted my very own giftwrapping courses at the Windsor workshops in Melbourne. As soon as I walked into the venue I fell in love with the beautiful space.

We were spoilt by Bree with a huge fruit platter, cookies and refreshments and several of us enjoyed a lunch nearby.

If you are ever hosting a workshop or event in Melbourne I can’t recommend this place highly enough. It’s amazing and in such a cool area (sadly I had no time to go shopping!).

I met some fantastic people and we managed to squeeze in a quick lunch at a local cafe.

One of my Instagram followers Dear Mabel came along and it was wonderful to put a face to a name, and I was spoiled rotten with lots of goodies (thank you Samantha)

Dear mabel

I then headed back to Sydney to run a workshop in conjunction with Sew Make Create, it’s a wonderful haberdashery shop in Chippendale owned by the delightful Melissa and her super cute dog called Pepper. During the course we made lots of bows, decorations and covered some gift wrapping projects too.

I had a wonderful trip and many of you asked when I will be returning to run future courses and events. I am planning to be back in February 2017 so if you would like to hear about our future Australia events please drop us an email at info@janemeans.co.uk so we can add you to our newsletter list

Bondi Beach

Luckily I enjoyed a rare day off on Bondi Beach before heading back to London, and it’s already given me inspiration for my wrapping projects. I love Turquoise so much that some of my ribbons are inspired from the sea

I’ve had a fantastic trip to Australia and one thing I will really miss are the incredible Melbourne sunsets which were different every night

Gift Wrapping Presentation ideas to make your Valentine feel special

With Valentines Day around the corner, you may be wondering how to pull all of the presentation stops. You’ve bought a luxury gift or maybe a small token present and want to make your loved one feel uber special.
Read on for some great gift wrapping and presentation ideas…

Valentine gift wrapping

Make your own personalised gift wrap. Choose a matt coloured paper and scrawl your favourite message or a special poem with a marker pen (available from Paperchase). I find the faster that you write the better it looks.

Calligraphy project

If you’re writing isn’t brilliant, sign up for a Calligraphy course with Judy Broad (I’m a huge fan of her work)

penhaligon's fragrance collection

Add another sense to your wrapping by lightly spraying on a romantic fragrance or a spritz of your favourite room spray (For me it has to be a dusting of royal favourite, Penhaligon’s)

 

Vintage map wrapping

If you’ve been to a special place why not wrap the gift in a map featuring the location. Ribbon can easily be decorated by gluing some dried rose buds for an effect

gift wrapping idea

If you’re wrapping something awkward like lingerie or a tie, wrap it in some tissue and add a strip of thick paper to keep the shape. Here i’ve added some Narrow red ribbon and a tag to decorate

gift voucher idea

If you’re giving a voucher, keep the envelope blank and tie in some fresh roses on the day.

Whatever you give and however small it is, you can go that extra mile by just thinking about the recipient. The gift doesn’t necessarily need to be wrapped in the colour red, but maybe their favourite shade or pattern. One year my husband presented me with a gift wrapped in newspaper, teamed with some red stripe ribbon and it looked fantastic.

We love seeing your projects and gift wrapping ideas so please keep them coming to our Facebook page

Melbourne and Sydney Gift Wrapping Courses in Australia to be launched

Jane Means will be launching Melbourne and Sydney Gift Wrapping Courses in Australia later this year, to coincide with the Australian launch of her book ‘giftwrapped’

Sydney gift wrapping courses

 

The gift wrapping expert says “It’s an exciting time taking the courses overseas.  For years I have had clients travelling from all over the world to attend the UK courses, but not everyone can afford the luxury of a long haul flight.  I am planning to do one off events, demonstrations and courses, catering for all budgets and already there’s been plenty of interest”
