9 ways to make your gift wrapping fun, sophisticated and unique
Over at the Paperhaus blog, the 12 days of Xmas blog hop continues. As part of the blog post today, I've shared some ways to make your gift wrapping this season extra special. Let's take a closer look here too......
A lovely way to decorate your mantle, wrap up some gifts and sprinkle them along it. Or pop under your Xmas tree, or anywhere really! To make it even more special, add some extra sparkle with tinsel and other bought trinkets.
Two of these gifts have been wrapped with cellophane that has been stamped on. One in a continuously random pattern, but the other with one single image (made of 2 stamps). Add some seam binding, and a little tag and you're done!
Here's a close up look at how I prepared the cellophane:
The third gift is wrapped using some gorgeous scrapbook paper, covered with a book page that has been folded over and over, and then to the side a couple of gorgeous snowflake die cuts from Tim Holtz have been added.
This gift is very simple. It has been wrapped with brown paper, then two pieces of seam binding that have been twisted with each other. Tie a knot at each end and you're done.
These ones are super simple too. The large bottom one is some plain brown paper that I splattered with some watered down gesso. Once it was dry, I wrapped the present and added a bow of seam binding to one end.
The top gift is wrapped with a book page, then wrapped with bought Christmas decorations. The baubles give a real sense of brightness and elegance.
This wee present is so much fun. There are two presents. The one inside and the ones on top.
Just wrap your present with book paper, add some mini Christmas crackers to the top and wrap with white seam binding.
The final two presents have were particularly fun to make....
For the top present, wrap with brown paper, then add a doily, a flower, a tag and trinket, attach with seam binding. Easy peasy and so cute.
As for my button packaging, I LOVE it. And so simple. Wrap the present in music paper, then on the top, add a large dollop of glue right across the present. Add in some red buttons and around the edges of these, some teeny tiny seed beads. Wait for them to dry and you're ready to give.
I have a ton more ideas that I'd love to share with you but not sure I'll get the time? Perhaps just keep an eye on my blog and I'll see what I can do!
