You just might find this series of wrapped gifts familiar. Yup, that’s because I’ve been slowing blogging them over the last couple months. You can find links to each separate one below.

Wrapping gifts is such a thrill for me, but I’m also a fan of coordinating. This set of wrapped packages was for a friend’s baby shower and you’ll find elements that each gift shares: confetti and color scheme. The confetti was either on the wrapping paper, in the form of sequins, or cut from tissue paper.

Are you a fan of coordinating your stack of gifts? I do it every time. Seriously.

When you don’t have an incredible amount of time to wrap up a gift, but you still want that statement, all you need to do is add one flashy piece. Today’s gift wrap idea is just that. Here’s the breakdown of what you need:

Gift box
Pastel polka dot paper in two different colors (found both these versions at Home Goods)
Gold glitter string
Gold glitter
Small wooden gift tag

ModPodge
Scissors
Double-sided tape

Start by applying ModPodge glue to one side of the wooden gift tag. Cover with glitter, shake off any excess, and let dry. Meanwhile, begin wrapping your gift with one of the wrapping papers you choose, securing with double-sided tape. Next, cut a skinny strip of paper from your second roll of wrapping paper, just enough to wrap around the middle once. Secure that with the tape as well. Next, wrap your box several times with the glitter string and tie with a knot on the backside. Once your glitter tag is dry, tie that onto the gift with more glitter string. Done!
