We went with a chic color palette of white, with silver, gold and mint embellishments.

After you’ve used Scotch® Gift Wrap Tape to wrap your gifts, it’s time to bling it on. Create a stripe on your gift using Scotch® Double-Sided Tape. Sprinkle glitter onto the tape. Use your fingers to smooth it down and make sure you have good coverage. Shake off any loose glitter and discard.

Then, confetti time! Create another stripe on your gift and attach confetti. We used gold snowflakes to add a little winter cheer. To finish things off we added a stripe of mint tape for our signature pop of color.

Next up, a star-studded gift. Once again, create a stripe on your gift using Scotch® Double-Sided Tape. Press confetti stars onto the tape.

Create an additional stripe and cover with glitter, and a mint stripe using Scotch® Masking Tape.


We’re loving all these patterned and textured stripes.
