Kiss.....Kiss Lipstick Gift Wrap


This is my last gift wrapping post this week I promise, but I was in one of those fun moods. While browsing through some fashion sites I came across a red taffeta dress with large pink polka dots and loved the colour combination.You don't often come across those two colours together unless it's Valentines Day, but that dress got me to thinking of my Kiss Kiss Gift Wrap idea. I also had these pink labels that I wanted to use somehow. Pink and red...........it sure won't get lost on a party table full of gifts!


The materials, my metallic red gift wrap that is truly one of the most beautiful red gift wrap paper ever, a roll of large circle labels in pink, wide pink satin ribbon, a narrow red velvet ribbon, a tube of red lipstick, and a good set of lips ( I didn't say they were mine but I was the only one here). You may prefer it as seen above with no Kiss, Kisses but I thought it was just plain fun. I simple cut my gift wrap to size, then added the pink circles (with kisses) in a fairly random pattern. As many or as few as you want. I didn't do it in that order only to be able to photograph it both ways. My Kiss labels went over the plain ones once I was done the first shoot.


Slather on that lovely red lipstick, kiss the label (practise a few times on plain paper as there is a pucker trick to it) and you have lovely Kisses for your next girlfriend party gift. You could take this idea a few steps further, adding labels in multiple colors and shapes on any solid colour gift wrap. If it's a group gift, everyone could sign it along with their kiss or write a positive characteristic of that person. Cover the gift labels with compliments in red pen. Once you get that pucker technique down perfect, you could even try this on a solid gift wrap paper, not too shiny of a paper though or the lipstick will smear right off. Wonder how these Kiss...Kisses in coral, pink, or red would look over my zebra pattern gift wrap paper?

  1. Oh Sande, this is gorgeous....honestly, you give me a whole week-end and my gift still would not look like this, you are fabulous!!!! Love the kisses on it too :)

    I thought of you on Sunday evening.....I had been out for the whole day and Mr Ironing Basket was in charge (someone else referred to him as that and I quite like it!).....out running errands (so he said).....and who should he run into but Mr Clive Owen who was just coming out of the cinema.

    You know you're on the right track when even your husband says "I have to say, he really IS a good looking man"!! :)

    Have a great day!

    Simone :)

  2. Sande,

    These are fabulous!

    Nothing sends a gift off better than sealing it with a kiss!

    Bisous,

  10. Oh Sande, you come up with something original everytime.I love this idea.
    Oh, and I thought perhaps, if Mr. Clive Owen is coming out of a cinema near me (which is possible. I live nearish Simone and am often in that area), I thought that I could practice the puckering- up kissing on him !!!! Do you think that he would oblige ? I think not. A bit of a wishful thinking moment there. XXXX
