Giving is more fun than receiving. Isn’t that right? To make giving extra special, we have come up with a cool DIY idea for gift wrapping with orchids, using beautiful paper and the prettiest orchid flowers. For this DIY project, we used Vanda, Cambria, Cymbidium Cascade and Oncidium. Have a look to find out how you make such beautiful gifts yourself or check the video below for instructions.
DIY: Gift wrapping with orchids

Step 1: Wrap the gifts in nice wrapping paper and cut a couple of flower stems from the orchid of your choice.
Step 2: Wrap the gifts and wrap a festive ribbon around the gift, secure with a dab of glue.
Step 3: Lay the orchid on the gift and fold the ribbon over it. Secure it on the back with glue.
Step 4: Insert the orchid’s stem into a flower test tube with water to make it last longer.
