How To Draw Christmas Gift Boxes

As you see in the picture, its pretty simple interest. My favorite way is to start the drafting of two pairs of horizontal guide lineson both sides of the box. Notice how they approach the lines aresupposed to decline further in space. so I will outline two linesabove the top, following the same rule of recession.
When finished, a preview of intersecting lines to draw the top ofour little gift boxes. The sketch straight vertical lines from threecorners to the bottom of the guidelines to finish the box.

Then you'll need to pull the ribbon wrapped and tied around thegift of comic illustration. See how they are actually not completely straight on the sides? It is because of the thickness of the cover ofthe box. Now, draw a small button right tape at the top center of the box.

Drawing the Bow for Christmas Gift Boxes

The bow for this gift box is really simple, yet elegant enough to look likespecial Christmas gifts or luxury presents! I always draw the upper parts - the big puffy bows first, and then work on ties. This way you can easily and quickly visualize its forms and adjust accordingly.
When you finish the basic outlines, give some emphasize on inner details, such as fabric folds and creases.

Decorating with Christmas Gift Wrap

This is really exciting part of this drawing tutorial - decorating your box withcool gift wrap prints!
Mine is just a simple and easy to draw Christmas trees prints in dark green and wooden earth colors, on top of warm orange-yellow box with bright red ribbon and velvet bow. This combination worked really well for me. But you, of course, can try with your own prints or pictures, just find some small gift boxes to use as your reference. Have a look around and I am sure you will easily find dozens of them.
