Flowers to decorate gift boxes
Flowers can be used to brighten so many areas of your home and life. They can be set in a vase to give your living room, kitchen, or even your office a wonderful warm look, or they can be used to decorate gift items like boxes and bags.
When you send a gift to somebody special, the packaging plays a significant role in how the gift is received. Taking time to wrap a gift shows the recipient just how much time and effort you’ve put into your relationship with them. It shows them how much they mean to you and how much you care.
You can use pressed flowers, fresh flowers, or artificial flowers to decorate gift bags and boxes. If you like, you can even add some essential oils to the flowers before you use them and this will ensure that they smell as great as they look!
If you are using particularly heavy flowers, you may want to use a needle and thread to sew them onto a ribbon and then tie that ribbon to the box or bag. Alternatively, you can pierce the base of the stem with some floral wire and use the wire to secure the flower in place. Lightweight flowers and flower petals can simply be glued to the box or bag as you wish.
It’s always a good idea to make sure that you choose a plain bag or box to work with. If need be, recover the box with plain paper before you proceed to decorate with flowers. Make sure that the colour of the paper matches the colours of the flowers you use. You should also test the box or bag to make sure that it is the right size to hold the gift. It would be quite a shame if you were to go to put in all that effort only to find that the bag or box is too small!
