Dipika and her husband, Shoaib introduced her love in their vlog, and fans were left all warm and fuzzy on knowing about their oh-so-sweet love.

So without further ado, let’s take cues from Dipika herself on how to create a gorgeous gift bag:
1) Purchasing items for the gift bag
If you are searching for something extremely beautiful at affordable rates, a local thrift market is just the place for you. Housing a collection of items such as netted bags in various colours and elaborate designs, you can easily spot the one you are looking for.
Now that you have your bag, look out for items to decorate the gift bag, such as plastic flowers with leaves and pollen, a white circular sheet to glue the flowers, gold ribbons, a gold net cloth, and a glue gun.

2) Make a border
Once you have purchased and gathered all the materials required, you can start assembling them one by one. Pick your gold ribbon and wrap it in the form of a square around the bag. Take your glue gun and gel the ends together. (Caution: The glue in a glue gun is extremely hot, so avoid touching it with your bare hands.)

3) Arrange the flowers
After making the border, you can start arranging the flowers in whichever way you want to. Trim the ends and keep sticking them on the back side of the white circular sheet.

4) Making the bow
To make a bow that will be placed on either side of the flowers, take your gold net cloth and cut it according to the size required. Cut it into two and fold them individually depending upon the desired width. Make pleats on each piece of cloth which would be closer towards the beginning and wider towards the ends. Stick both pieces of cloth on the white circular sheet.

5) Gluing flowers to the bow
Once your flowers and bow are ready, pour glue on the middle part of the bow and place flowers on them. The end result should look something like this:
