Boxless clothing gift wrap


Today is a very special day for Steve and I. Our anniversary!! We had two weddings, one in Korea and one in NYC. Since Korean wedding was first, that is the anniversary we celebrate. Although I think why not celebrate both and get two presents? =P 
But then again, it's always hard to buy gifts for Steve and vice versa as we are both type of people who just get what we want on our own without waiting. So after a long thought process, I decided to get him some shirts I'd like him to wear. He gets new shirts, I get to see what I like. Win-win.


After bringing these shirts home without thinking about gift-wrapping, I realized I have no gift box left. Sigh..what was I thinking when I can just get them wrapped nicely right there? I guess I was meant to wrap the gift with extra love myself. I can't stand it when I have to wrap clothing gifts without a box. It's not so easy to do and I don't like the look of it. So I googled and found a way. Hooray!


Cereal box! Well the elegant lady in the tutorial used a perfect piece of cardboard paper but since I didn't have any, cheerios box was enough to get me all excited.(That I didn't have to go back out to a store.) Split the box carefully separating the glued part and cut the top and bottom so you get two equal size pieces like above picture. I guess you can paint the cereal box and make it look less obvious but I just put the printed side down. If this gift goes outside of our house, I would definitely do something about it. 


As 'the elegant lady from tutorial' suggested, I wrapped the shirts with tissue papers.


 Place the wrapping paper of your choice and sandwich the tissue wrapped shirts between two boards.


Wrap the gift as you would wrap any box. As I used Kraft paper, I chose jute twine for rustic look. 


Then I stamped it. And Tada~ Boxless gift wrap with the look of a box. Hope he likes the shirts. Happy anniversary my love!

  6. A remarkable thing about clothing these days is that almost any style seems to work. If it fits the person's sense of fashion and if that person feels perfectly comfortable and confident with what he or she wears then the outfit would look as though it came out of a fashion icon's closet.crystal rhinestones

  20. As much as possible, buy kid's clothes when there are available discounts and promos to save money. You do not really need to spend a lot of money on children's clothes because your kids will outgrow them quickly. In short, you will be replacing these clothes in a few months. kuwaiti thobe

  22. Vintage clothing for men would probably be composed of a checkered or striped suit with a vest on top of their long-sleeved shirt. An alternative would be a striped or checkered shirt, a vest, and slacks, and probably a hat. This could be topped off with a long coat or a long jacket. Custom Iron On Patches

  30. Online shopping has indeed grown beyond leaps and bound but it is still a long way away from becoming the choice of the majority. Many people are still not comfortable with the idea of buying anything without actually touching and feeling it. To them, it's odd to read product specifications, see some raw pictures and place an order. Misfits Hats
