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.


2. The corner ties

This is a slightly more complicated one.

You will need:

  • Wrapping paper
  • Thread
  • A4 card paper
  • Ribbons
  • Christmas stamp
  • Scissors
  • Glue


First, wrap your gift as normal. Then start at the top and lay the thread/ribbon like shown:


Bring it behind and around the bottom left corner:


Bring it behind again and up over the top left corner:


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.


3. The gift bag

You will need:

  • Gift bag
  • Paint
  • Thread
  • A4 card paper
  • Christmas stamp


Outline a design and paint on the gift bag


Put your gift in and tie it together with a ribbon. Add a card made with just a stamp and an ink pad.

Smudge the ink pad on the edges to achieve a rustic look
