Black Tie Gift Design

Black Tie Gift Wrap Designs

My Guest Blogger Wedding Gift Wrap Design for Nashville Wraps.

I have always loved themed gift wrap — it is an unexpected way to decorate a gift and just makes people smile. I was walking by a tuxedo rental store at the mall and saw all of the styles of tuxes shown on the wall as options to choose from. I was instantly inspired to create a gift box design perfect for a groom or groomsmen using a tuxedo as the presentation. It is easy to create this look and will hold any type of gift with Nashville wraps large selection of black boxes.  The Pearl Stripe Gift Wrap looks like an expensive tuxedo shirt and the Double Faced Satin Ribbon gives the bow tie a crisp and classic style. I finished the design with black shiny beads to simulate buttons. I have created the Black Tie gift design so any of these styles shown can be reused after the gift it open — this also allows for the gift wrapping to be in done in advance. They will not only dazzle any wedding party but also add sophistication to a black tie gala event.
