In my last post I showed you the basics of tying the perfect bow. But is that all I do to my gifts? No, of course not. I like to be really extra and decorate them even further. When giving a beautiful gift, no matter what the occasion, it’s always nice for it to be an experience opening a wonderfully wrapped present and then seeing the actual item inside.

Watch the short film below to see how to add some accessories to your hand-dyed silk ribbon bow and make your gift that little bit more special.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this one, it was really fun making it, and of course I wrapped all my little gifts using many of these techniques. You could even personalise what goes on top depending on the recipient, and perhaps they would even recognise their own gift just based on how it’s wrapped!

There’s one more short video to come in this series. Check back soon, or sign up to my email list to be notified when it’s online.

P.S. Just in case you’ve forgotten a gift for someone, there are some gift certificates available at aratidevasher.co.uk that can be emailed to you ASAP!
