Anna’s Gift Wrapping Tips and Tricks

Tip 1 | Use Glitter Tape

Glitter tape is a great accent to any ribbon! We added glitter tape to both sides of the ribbon creating an illusion of a wider ribbon.

Anna Griffin® Glitter Tape 10-piece Bundle, 583-886

Tip 2 | Make Your Own Gift Tags

It is so easy and fun to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind gift tags with our Terrific Tags Dies and Stamps! It’s the perfect finishing touch to any gift!

Anna Griffin® Terrific Tags, Cutting Dies and Stamps Bundle, 505-094

Tip 3 | Use Your Clear Stamps

All you need is craft paper and your favorite holiday stamp to make beautiful wrapping paper! We love this poinsettia stamp from the Terrific Tags, Dies and Stamps Bundle!

Anna Griffin® Terrific Tags, Cutting Dies and Stamps Bundle, 505-094

Tip 4 | Get out your Craft Embellishments

Think outside the box! You can use any embellishment from your favorite Anna Griffin product! We used the beautiful holly from the Glorious Greetings Card Kit. What embellishment will you use?

Tip 5 | Use the Bow Maker with Storage Box

What’s better than a beautiful bow? A beautiful double bow! They are so easy to make on our Bow Maker! All you have to do is loop twice instead of once.

Anna Griffin® Bow Maker with Ribbon Storage and Holiday Ribbon, 574-334

Attaching the Bow to a Present: After you’ve made the perfect bow on your bow maker, attach it to your present by slipping the tail of the ribbon on your gift through the back half of the knot on your bow.

Tip 6 | Use Different Ribbon Widths and Bow Sizes

The possibilities are endless with the Bow Maker with storage box. Have fun playing around with different ribbon widths and bow sizes! We did!
