Holiday Gift Wrapping Tips from the Founder of Copper and Brass Paper Goods

Holiday Gift Wrapping Tips from the Founder of Copper and Brass Paper Goods

Are you still looking to wrap a few more gifts before Christmas arrives? With help from Ariel Young, the Georgia Peach behind Copper and Brass Paper Goods, we have all the gift wrapping tips you need with inspiration to get started from her line of heritage-inspired holiday gift wrap which you can order here: https://www.copperandbrass.net/

My name is Ariel Young and I am the owner of Copper and Brass Paper Goods. I am a Spelman College graduate and a true Georgia Southern Bell. My company creates products that highlight the modern day black family by incorporating positive images of people of color into everyday paper good products and stationery. Copper and Brass Paper Goods has been in business since October 2018 and since that time we have received a product testimonial from a cast member of Married 2 Medicine and we had two small features on Essence.com. 

I’ve always had a love of pretty packages with all the trimmings.  With the holiday season upon us, I thought I’d share with you some gift wrapping ideas. 

First, gather your supplies. You’ll need a smooth surface, a pen, sharp scissors, and double-sided tape.  Double-sided tape is readily available and the finished product is crisp and sleek. We never want to see unsightly tape on our pretty packages. 

Raid your local home and garden store. Grab holly or ivy leaves and tie those on your packages. Use a metallic gel pen to write the recipient’s name on the leaves.  These packages tend to smell nice too. 

Every gift needs a bow, ribbon or twine just something to complete the look. Grab some fabulous trim and spruce up all your holiday gifts. A simple trick is to dress your gifts with toppers such as Christmas ornaments and silk poinsettias leaves. As an added bonus after the gifts are unwrapped the toppers can be easily reused.

For those awkwardly shaped gifts just grab a festive gift bag. You then want to gather coordinating tissue paper (always open each sheet completely), line the bag, place the gift in the bag, then bunch one or two sheets of paper to cover the gift, add a gift tag and you have a beautifully wrapped gift.
