First, wrap the boxes in the brown paper bag. I like to wrap the top and bottom separately so it’s easy for your guests to open.

Next, tack the ribbon on the inside of the box.

Tie a beautiful bow with your ribbon. You can use fall colors or any ribbon that matches your table décor.

I like to use two different ribbons to make the box look more colorful and inviting.
