Christmas Cards and Wrapping

1. The classic

You will need:

  • Wrapping paper
  • Christmas Ribbons
  • A4 card paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Decorations of choice (I used:)
    – Christmas stamp set

First, wrap your present as normal (this is easier with a hard square gift). This is a slight alteration to the classic way of wrapping as you move the ribbons slightly to the left so it is not centered.

Curl the ribbon as normal and add a gift tag. This gift tag was made with the same wrapping paper with the card paper glued to it. I used a stamp for the décor and a hole punch to fasten it to the ribbon.

Bring it behind again and over the bottom right corner and bring it up to the tom and make a bow.

Add a card, made with card paper stamp and ribbons and you have a present with a little different and cool look.
