I started by wrapping my gift in luxorious red fabric

2.  Use lace ribbon to tie off the top of the package.

Then I tied a lace ribbon around the top portion

3.  Cut out a tag out of card stock, punch a hole in the top of it, and use string to tie it around the top of the gift.

Make the tag appear old by rubbing the edges with brown stamping ink.
