Fancy Wrapped Gifts

I'm guilty of wrapping presents rather plainly. Thank goodness for my friend Anne teaching me a better way. I give you: Fancy Wrapped Gifts!

Only a few details can transform a plain present into a gorgeous gift!

The wrapping paper is very pretty, but doesn't say a little girl's birthday. What it needed: ribbon and flowers!

A brooch adds bling to any gift and can be used over and over!

This gift is my favorite! A large feather was added as well as fabric pearl trim. Both are reusable!

Got any scrapbook embellishments laying around? Stick one on!

I have another friend who only buys white wrapping paper and dresses it up for any occasion with ribbon, bows and other embellishments.

More ideas of items to dress up gifts:
Jewels
Lace
Two types of ribbon on the same gift
Twine
Vintage keys
Miniature birds or another animals
Buttons
A flower hair bow (doubles as a gift!)
Fabric trims
Polymer clay shapes or gift tags
Beads or charms

Do you have any more fancy wrapping ideas? We'd love to hear them!

Those are beautiful! I am so guilty of wrapping the present so last minute that I'm lucky it's covered when I'm out the door! I should plan ahead!

I like the brooch one best, but they are all very pretty.

Those are so pretty.
I want to wrap presents pretty as well. But most times I am in a rush.
Great tips

I am even worse than you because I just throw the present in a bag and add a little tissue to the top before running out of the door. LOL
