Wrapping paper DIY: sequin ribbon design

For a special occasion, sometimes you just want to add a little flair to your wrapped gift.

Here’s a fun idea that doesn’t take a lot of extra time or effort, but produces a cool design with a band of sequins across your gift.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. A wrapped present (we used hot pink reversible wrapping paper)
  2. Double sided tape
  3. Sequins of various sizes
Supplies you'll need: a wrapped present, double sided tape, sequins

Using double-sided tape, wrap it around the package a few times (as wide or as narrow as you want). We prefer to wrap the package in tape about 3 times around, which makes a band that’s about 1.5″ wide.

Step 1 illustrated with hands wrapping double-sided tape around the package

Shake the sequins on the gift and press them onto the tape. You can also use glitter, but as we all know glitter can be a little messy for both you and the recipient. We used a bag of sequins of various sizes, which gave the band good dimension and made it easier to fill in gaps.

Step 2 illustrated with hands shaking the sequins on the gift

Shake off the excess and reattach the ones that fell off, filling in any gaps.

There you have it — with just sequins and double-sided tape, you have a really unique, glamorous gift to give someone for their birthday or other special occasion.

You did it!
