How to tie a ribbon on a gift?

Not a sin­gle solemn event or extreme­ly sig­nif­i­cant event is com­plete with­out a gift. Accept­ing a pre­sent­ed sou­venir or a thing that has been wait­ing for a long time, the recip­i­ent of the gift pays not the last atten­tion to its design. Often, the process itself depends on how the donat­ed con­tent is pack­aged: it is unlike­ly that any­one will like an insuf­fi­cient­ly devel­oped pre­sen­ta­tion design. In addi­tion to the pack­ag­ing that is shiny and sparkling in the light, the tying of the gift is also impor­tant.

How to choose?

You don’t need to be a great mas­ter to arrange a sur­prise that is being pre­pared for giv­ing, already in the box. But choos­ing the right tape is just as impor­tant. Pay atten­tion not only to the col­or of the tape, but also to the mate­r­i­al from which it is made. The tape might look like this:

  • satin — high-qual­i­ty syn­thet­ics with a smooth and shiny sur­face, pleas­ant to the eye and silky to the touch, durable, easy to wash and iron, in gen­er­al — will nev­er let you down;
  • organ­za with wire trim - a new rush of fash­ion, a great style and vision of design, bright iri­des­cent tints and sparkle, per­fect­ly com­ple­ment­ed by pat­terns and design based on embroi­dery; dis­ad­van­tage — quick creas­ing and rash­ing of sequins, requires care­ful han­dling;

  • lace rib­bon - the advan­tages include uniqueiza­tion of the present due to the unique look and catchy design; the size and col­or of each of these tapes leaves an excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ty to choose the most suit­able option;

  • polypropy­lene tape pro­tect­ed from rapid aging fad­ing; Basi­cal­ly, such a tape is paint­ed in the same shade, but there are options with addi­tion­al ren­der­ing.

Tying methods

The most ele­gant option is a satin rib­bon. Hov­er, you can also use twine or a thin rope, dyed and dec­o­rat­ed prop­er­ly. The pack­age itself with a gift, if ini­tial­ly it did not please with an orig­i­nal and chic pat­tern, can be trimmed with dec­o­ra­tive kraft paper.

The simplest bow

To dec­o­rate a box with a present with a sim­ple satin rib­bon bow, it is advis­able to take such a rib­bon at least 5 cm wide. Do the fol­low­ing:

  • mea­sure a piece of tape of the desired length with a small mar­gin;
  • clamp one of its ends in the place where the knot will be;
  • hold­ing the har­ness by the free end, cir­cle it around the pack­age from all sides, cross­ing it with the fixed part;
  • make one more turn around the pack­age;
  • pull the end of the rib­bon under the core and tie it in a tight knot, and then tie the rest of the bow;
  • cut off the tied rib­bon at the ends along an oblique line — it is the oblique cut that will give the rib­bon an addi­tion­al charm, while the edges will remain even and neat.

The bow can be locat­ed either strict­ly par­al­lel to one of the side planes of the pack­age, or be turned diag­o­nal­ly in any direc­tion.

double tier bow

It is also very easy to make a two-tiered bow on your own. To do this, do the fol­low­ing:

  • use two strips of satin of dif­fer­ent widths to form two rings;
  • cut­ting off anoth­er addi­tion­al piece, tie both parts of the har­ness with it, fold­ing it in the mid­dle of these seg­ments;
  • make indi­vid­u­al­ly shanks of the same length and attach them to the back of the bow.

Impor­tant! If nec­es­sary, it is per­mis­si­ble to make sev­er­al such parts, and then glue them, hav­ing already tied the main part of the tape.

Three tiered bow

Tie a gift rib­bon with a three-tier bow is a lit­tle more dif­fi­cult when com­pared with a two-tier one. The step by step instruc­tions are as fol­lows:

  • already use three small satin rib­bons with dif­fer­ent lengths and col­ors; align them with each oth­er, start­ing with the nar­rost;
  • tie three parts in the mid­dle;
  • wrap and tie three rib­bons on the gift box and secure the bow.

Dior style bow

The ide­al option is to use a red satin rib­bon, which will give the pres­i­dent a spe­cial charm. Do the fol­low­ing:

  • cut the satin rib­bon in a sec­tion with a dif­fer­ent length;
  • glue each of the parts of the tape in the form of a ring;
  • wrap the gift box with rib­bon and mark the loca­tion of the bow — it is best to attach it in the mid­dle of the top of the box;
  • attach the tape blanks to each oth­er, start­ing with the small­est;
  • cut two small pieces of tape, attach one of them in the form of a ring in the cen­ter, and use the oth­er to open the bond­ing point of all parts.

The result­ing ver­sion is very ver­sa­tile — it is suit­able for any gift or sou­venir, regard­less of the size and design of the lat­ter. Bow “Dior” is easy to do with your own hands. It is only impor­tant to decide on the tech­nique of exe­cu­tion and design. For such a per­for­mance, any rib­bon is suit­able — it does not have to be satin. In the end, the design of the gift is deter­mined main­ly by the pref­er­ences and imag­i­na­tion of the giv­er.

Minimalistic presentation design

If none of the above options with a wide and beau­ti­ful rib­bon fit you, kraft paper and twine are what you need. With the help of paper and twine para­pher­na­lia, they make out all the same parcels and New Year’s sou­venirs. For exam­ple, if Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions are pre­sent­ed as a gift, then a sim­ple pack­age with dec­o­ra­tive paper that has a dis­creet design would be a good option.

At the same time, it is tied with twine in the form of the same sim­ple bow and is addi­tion­al­ly dec­o­rat­ed with a nat­ur­al pine or spruce branch. Addi­tion­al­ly, a post­card or a beau­ti­ful­ly designed note in the form of a dec­o­ra­tive enve­lope or an air­plane, ele­gant­ly placed under a bow, can dec­o­rate the pack­age.

No mat­ter how intri­cate the scheme of tying the pack­ag­ing with the upcom­ing present, no mat­ter how catchy the pack­ag­ing itself was, the main thing here is the bright and kind feel­ings shown by the donor to the per­son being award­ed. So, if the beloved girl acts as the recip­i­ent of the gift, then love for her will final­ly tell the guy how to arrange the pre­sent­ed present cor­rect­ly.
