How to wrap a present with ribbon. I actually used tape to wrap the present part, but there is so much ribbon around it that I think it would hold the wrapping paper on anyway. And I love the extra color the ribbon gives this present.

wrapping a present with ribbon

Start with a wrapped present, two ribbons in different widths and colors that coordinate with the wrapping paper, some tape, and scissors. With the widest ribbon taped in back to start, wrap the ribbon around the present lengthwise three times, then tape in back again. Don’t worry about making it straight, I like the ribbon a little crooked and funky.

Using the thinner ribbon, go in between the thicker ribbon making a basket weave. Tie the thin ribbon ends together in a knot on the back. Add a letter initial of the birthday person and you’re done.

I thought I’d round up a few of the guest posts I did for other blogs last year. I hope you enjoy a little classic OCP. Photos by Nicole Hill Gerulat.


  1. another cute idea….i think presentation is half the fun of giving the gift…i just put up three drapery poles to be able to access all my ribbons…it makes wrapping so much more fun when you are not digging in a box…my next gift to my self will be those wrapping paper spools for the wall….thanks for sharing.

  3. It looks great! If you use double stick tape, you could even hide the seams of the ribbon :)
