Last week we started this Motiflow blog. Curious who we are? You can find it here!
Gift wrapping, garlands and confetti. This first blog will be in theme of the Paper Party. And, you can guess this one: it's all about wrapping paper. Wat kind of paper does Motiflow sell? How does it work? And what are other things you can do with wrapping paper?
You’ve chosen your gift carefully, but what about the presentation? Special gifts deserve the best, gorgeous wrapping paper! Are you an advanced gift wrapper or do you already give up when you can't find the beginning of the tape? It doesn't matter, the wrapping paper makes the difference! At Motiflow you can order your favorite pattern on high-quality giftwrap. This way you can personalize your gift, just find a pattern that fits the birthday boy or girl! Is it a pet lover? Than look for a giftwrap paper with an animal print, like the bear-print from Studio-Mel. Soccerfan? Postage stamps collector? Make-up artist? You will find a personal print for every person! Planning to give the birthday girl a drawing set? Give a little hint by wrapping it up in the pencil giftwrap paper from Megan McNulty.
Print your own giftwrap
Want to print your own design on giftwrap? No problem! At Motiflow you can easily upload your own design, put it in repeat and make your own giftwrap. How about giftwrap for a wedding? For example: it would be one big surprise if you wrap up your wedding gift with the design from their wedding card!
How to gift wrap
After you've chosen your wrapping paper, it's time for the extra points! Find matching ribbons in the same color-tints, strips of fabric or a nice sticker. On the photos in this blog you’ll see enough examples. Need more inspiration? We made a special Pinterest board for you. The best tip: it's all about combining things! Like different materials, a ribbon and a cord, or different colors like a canary-yellow wrapping paper with a copper cord. Knock yourself out!
DIY paper garland
In the mood for more paper handcrafts? Than make a paper garland from our giftwrap paper! Cut out flags from the (left-overs of the) wrapping paper and fold these around a rope. If you make tiny little flags, it can be also the finishing touch for your present! You will have unique, matching flags.. and it's all about combining, remember? Hundred surprisement points guaranteed!
You can also make fabric garlands with a sewing machine and a rope (you can order fabric from 1 meter at Motiflow). Also think of other kinds of garlands: a paper wheel, a paper diamond or a garland with hearts for a love couple.
Wrapping paper left-overs
Never throw away the leftover pieces from paper or fabric. Why? You can make confetti by cutting them into little pieces. Nice for in a gift bag, a present box or put it in a (see-trough) balloon. Simple, but it will look awesome! Furthermore you can use the paper to make your own labels, mini-bags and envelopes. Or use the giftwrap for scrapbooking, decoration or put a list around it and you'll have a poster!
TIP! Look at our Pinterest account with the new board 'Paper Party'. Here we will place nice tips for paper inspiration and DIY's.
