When it comes to arts and crafts, I have two left hands and a talent for making a mess. I always admire people who can create something from nothing and who are particularly resourceful. So, I thought I would try some easy gift wrapping ideas and share the results. Luckily, there is not much that can go wrong when all I had at hand was ribbon, tape and brown paper. Below, are three simple ways to wrap a gift...
1. For this parcel, I used metallic satin ribbon in gold and a plush gold gift tag. As a roll of brown paper is rather cheap, you can spend elsewhere - like these oversized, merry tags. Add the finishing touch by cutting the ends of the ribbons at an angle.
2. If you are looking for inspiration, you don't have to look much further than your Christmas tree (and Pinterest). This is about as Pinterest as I will get - a trimming off the tree, tied with a recycled ribbon. This is an easy and creative way of dressing up a parcel.
3. I always have left over decorations once the tree is decorated. Simply, use these to dress up your parcel. I also used silver tape around the parcel and then tied the white and red string around and fastened with a bow knot.
These are all, easy and fun ways to make a gift, that extra bit special. It shows a little time and thought has been put into wrapping that gift for that someone you care about. I only wished, more glitter and glue was involved in this post - maybe that will be the next one.
I hope you enjoyed this post and even take a little inspiration from it. Happy gift wrapping!
