How do I fill empty space in gift box?
No matter how many items you pack in your basket, there may be empty spaces that need a little something to achieve that full abundant look. Crinkle cut, fine cut and colorful tissue shreds are used to fill the void while adding texture and color to the gift basket.
Regardless of the basket you choose, you should fill the bottom with crumpled paper or another type of filler before adding the gift items. This filler provides an even, decorative base. Crumpled tissue paper is one of the most common options, but shredded paper, shredded cellophane, and straw can also work well.
