For this week’s Simple Gift Ideas entry, I’d like to share a very simple idea on how to wrap small gift items.
If you had read my post a few months ago about my hospital experience in China, you’d remember that I received much-needed help from the foreign faculty community of Sias and from Chinese students who have become my friends.
So at the beginning of the year, I gave those people, who had helped me in some ways, a small token of appreciation for all their help.
I gave them tiny candles designed as succulents. They came in different colors and designs. I can’t believe I didn’t take a photo of all of them before giving them away! Or I might have, knowing myself, but I just can’t find any among the thousands of photos in my archive. 😅
They’re very tiny so I had to make small paper boxes just to avoid the risk of breaking them while I’m wrapping them. I wrapped them using some kind of felt papers, I think. I used red papers. Then I used green ribbons to tie the ends of the paper together and to attach a name tag.
So they looked like these ones in the photos below.
Again, very simple. Nothing fancy, but I’m sure you’d agree with me that red and green always look good together. And I think the white tag added a nice touch to the red-green combo. 😊
So let me know what you think, will you? 😁
Have a nice day!
