Sets are a traditional gift for various holidays. In order for your present to evoke a storm of emotions, it is very important to pack it correctly. The perception of a gift varies greatly depending on the packaging. Just imagine that you re presented with the most delicious sets, but in a regular package from the store. What will be your reaction? Therefore, let’s figure out how to pack sets in a beautiful and original way.
New Year and Christmas sets
In Russia, it is customary to give set gifts to children for the New Year. We usually buy them ready-made. But you can get creative with this. Today there is no shortage of sets, so it is inappropriate to give large packages of sets and marmalades. It will be much more original and valuable to pack sets in a beautiful box with a New Year theme.
This will require an ordinary box, craft packaging paper, a couple of spruce branches. Arrange sets carefully in the box. There can be cupcakes, and chocolate, and cupcakes, and marshmallows. Choose for filling those sets that the recipient loves the most. Next, wrap the box with craft paper. It has a pleasant beige shade and always looks very respectable. To prevent the package from opening, secure the folds with a stapler.
It remains only to tie a beautiful ribbon and fasten the spruce branches around the bow.
If New Year’s sets are familiar to us, then the tradition of giving gingerbread for Christmas was forgotten during the Soviet period, but today it is being revived. Beautiful themed gingerbread cookies can be bought at the store or baked by yourself. It is very touching when children decorate them themselves, and then present them to their grandmothers and other relatives.
You can pack each gingerbread or homemade cookie in a separate transparent bag, decorating it with a ribbon or serpentine. These small gifts can also be given to colleagues. It will be relevant and will not hit the wallet.
Sets in a bouquet
This is the trend of recent years. Specialized firms will provide you with such services. But is it worth overpaying if you can make such a bouquet with your own hands? It is best to purchase sets for a bouquet that already have foil packaging and a rounded shape. You can easily find these by ight in the nearest supermarket. We also need long skers, corrugated paper. The latter must be of two or more colors. The first is green for the stem and leaves, the second is for decorating the petals.
Choose the color of the petals as you wish. In one bouquet, you can combine different tones. From this paper cut out several squares and draw petals on them. To simplify the whole process, it is better that they are connected in the center. Next, straighten each petal a little and give the desired shape. We insert one blank into another, and place our candy in the center.
Now let’s take a look at the stem and leaves. We wrap the sker along the entire length with green paper and fix it with glue, cut out and glue a couple of leaves. Now it remains to collect the flor. We pierce the center of the petals with a sker so that it enters a little into the candy itself. It remains only to make the required number of flors and collect them in a bouquet. It must also be wrapped in paper or gift wrap.
Boxes and jars
The choice of a specific design option for sets depends on their name. So, small dragees, small sets without packaging and small cookies are best placed in a jar. But purchased packaged sets are best packed in a box. Depending on the occasion, additional accessories may be added to the box. For the New Year, you can add small Christmas decorations and tinsel. For women on March 8, sets such as macaroons, muffins and cupcakes are suitable, which can be combined in one box with flors.
If you give sets to children, then you can get creative with the design. For example, a transparent beautiful jar can be transformed into a funny deer, bear or kitten. To do this, stick the corresponding elements of the muzzle on the jar itself (eyes, cheeks, mustache, cilia). Decorate the lid with ears. They can easily be made from felt. It holds its shape ll and visually resembles felted wool. Set gifts for children in boxes can also be supplemented with small soft toys.
The delight of the kids will be even greater if, in addition to their favorite marmalades and sets, a cute soft bear or kitten is hidden in the box.
Transparencies and baskets
The clear film is ideal for wrapping homemade cookies, pies and gingerbread houses. In this case, you can not worry that it will become stale or germs will get on it. Also, a transparent film is indispensable when you want to arrange a gift in a basket or bowl. You can buy baskets and trays, or you can make your own. It would be more practical to purchase a semicircular transparent bowl. She will not hide the beauty of the gift, in the future the hostess will be able to use it in the kitchen.
If you want to diversify a set gift, then you can put fruit in a bowl or box. Exotic fruits and berries will look especially original. After filling with sets, the bowl or basket must be wrapped in a transparent film and decorated with ribbons and a bow.
But there are no hard limits here. You can fully show your imagination and create a unique author’s packaging for your sets.
Plain or corrugated paper
One of the trends of recent years has been the use of craft paper for wrapping flors and gifts. It seems to send us back in time. Sometimes it even stylizes as a newspaper. Such options, no doubt, will be appreciated not only by the older generation, but also by young people. There are a lot of options for wrapping paper today. If you give sets, then you can arrange them in the form of a large candy. It is enough to place them in a cylinder (can be made from whatman paper) and wrap them in beautiful foil paper. On the sides it should be twisted and tied with ribbons.
Children will appreciate the unusual design of a gift in children’s bacweacks. Thus, you will get two gifts at once — both sets and a bacweack, with which you can then walk. Making sets as a gift is a joyful and enjoyable process. Get creative with it. Do not be afraid to experiment and implement the most daring ideas. And then a surge of positive emotions in your loved ones is guaranteed.
