I grabbed a few rolls of ribbon in my stash that looked like Holiday Ribbon and laid them out on the table for my boys to choose which ones they liked. Of course, they they chose the unconventional wrapping trim: May Arts Wired Gold Metallic Ribbon (KS30) and Wired Gold Pearls (FY30)! Now, I had to create some perfectly unique gift wrapping ideas with those skinny ribbons for the May Arts Unique Gift Wrapping Ideas Blog Hop! I hope that I fufilled the challenge, as it was so much fun to come up with different ideas using just one or two ribbons.
My first idea (above) showcases a cosmic twist...I made a simple bow with the wired metallic and then added in a few loops of the wired gold pearls. I love how the wire lets me transform the bow into how poofy or small I'd like, and in this case, I went for poof!
The second idea is to write the name of your recipient with the gold wire (thanks to my sister Heather for the idea-she did this with regular wire a few years back!)! So simple and easy to do with the KS30, as it is nice and thin, but the wire is really strong! I attached it behind a ribbon tag made of moss satin scalloped edge ribbon (EN16).
Lastly, I decided to showcase a bit of quirkiness. I made a pom-pom out of the gold metallic wire and attached it over a few loose loops of the same wire. Fun!
Of course, as with any May Arts Ribbon Hop, there are prizes up for grabs by commenting! Two amazing prize packs: Your choice of 1 roll of Christmas ribbon (including the new releases!) and one of the new Artful Accents.
Here's the line up, and complete details can be found over on the May Arts Blog:
