A gift bag is the easy go-to for a quick gift and the obvious choice for busy procrastinators (like myself!) We all know that tissue stuffing completes the look, BUT the way tissue is arranged  in a gift bag really says a lot. It can say- "I put this together in the car on the way over here" or "I have painstakingly selected the perfect compliment for the perfect gift!"

Everyone always comments on the artful way we stuff gift bags with tissue for our displays and catalog photos. The truth is that there is no right or wrong way to do this, but with a few quick tricks you can create a simply fabulous presentation for your present. You can probably even do it in the car on the way to the party. 


Step 1. Layering different colors makes for a pretty ‘present’-tation! Try to match the tissue to the color palette of the gift bag you have chosen. Here we used solid tissue but we also offer beautifully printed tissue to coordinate with any bag!


Step 2. Rotate. Use one sheet of each color but rotate each so that the corners are all distinct. You want to have as many “points” as possible.

Step 3. Fold the tissue in half from the center, then in half again. To adjust for smaller bag sizes, fold the bottom corner up as needed.


Step 4. Arrange the folded tissue around your gift and place it in your gift bag. Don’t forget to dress up your gift bag with a coordinating gift tag! We love to mix and match multiples from our recycled luggage tag assortments.


Happy Stuffing, Gift Wrappers!

Stay tuned and we'll show you more fabulous finishes and quick tricks to try!
