I currently have an obsession with confetti right now. So today’s gift wrap uses tissue confetti on top of confetti wrapping paper. Here’s what you need:
Confetti wrapping paper (I found this gold one at Home Goods)
Confetti tissue paper
Metallic tissue paper
Iridescent white glitter string
1.5″ circle punch
1/8″ hole punch
Once your gift box is wrapped in the confetti paper, carefully punch out confetti circles from your tissue paper using the circle punch. It works best when you fold the tissue paper over a few times and punch through the layers. Once those are punched out, use your small hole punch to punch one hole in each circle about 1/4″ in (yup, punching a stack of circles at once is easier than punching individually when it comes to tissue paper). Next, string the tissue circles onto the glitter string, randomly spacing them out. It’ll take a bit of work getting the string into the small holes, but it’ll look so much better without those gaping holes in the tissue. Once that’s done, simple wrap the glitter string around the wrapped box and tie into a knot on the bottom of the box. Make sure your confetti circles span from edge to edge. And done!
You might remember a card similar to this one that I shared on the blog a while back, but when there are plenty of husbands that are adored by their wives, you get to repeat it again and again. This one is for a five-year wedding anniversary where the wife wanted to thank her husband for being perfect. This card shows the husband juggling just a few of the things he loves and/or has been involved in since the wedding day.

Every now and then, I like to share super simple gift wrap ideas that don’t involve much creative brain power. Today’s gift wrap idea is using gorgeous wrapping paper with sequins. Here’s what you need:
Blend of gold + iridescent white sequins
Floral wrapping paper (Paper Source is a great place to find this)
Start by wrapping your boxed gift with the wrapping paper of your choice. The trick is to always use double-sided tape for a neat streamlined look. Set the wrapped box aside and string some sequins onto your cotton string. Mix them around a bit to create variance. Once you’re got the desired amount of sequins on, simply tie the string around the box (sequins on top, of course) and secure with a knot on the bottom of the box. If you want, you can even slip a mini card + envelope under the sequins.
