Now that I have made my stance on pretty bows on packages, you may be asking yourself, “What does she do with a present she is shipping?” Obviously, a pretty bow would get smashed during transport. I take a little different approach on these types of packages. I still don’t use a gift bag, though. Ha-Ha-Ha. In all seriousness, I DO use gift bags on occasion, but it is rare. So getting back to a shipped package, I treat this package more like a scrapbook page. I use ribbon and stickers to decorate the top of the package.
The present is still impressive even without a bow. Now you are ready to cover the package in “brown packaging paper”, which comes in a roll like wrapping paper. I frequently purchase this at the Dollar Tree. Be sure to tape with packaging tape. Address and ship. Your recipient will be pleased with your presentation!
