CHRISTMAS GIFT WRAPPING IDEA: Ribbon Trees

We love the simplicity of threading some gorgeous ribbon through these simple Christmas tree shapes. You could cut the trees out of old Christmas cards, and play around with different Christmas ribbon, such as printed ribbon, or even metallic colours. The brown paper is inexpensive and provides a nice neutral base colour.

Gift wrapping idea of the week: Cool gift wrap folding technique

When we’re taught how to wrap a present, we generally always fold the paper in the same way. But what would happen if we folded the paper another way…


Why we love it:
  • This is a great way of creating a secure little pocket to stash your gift card (which can so easily become detached from your gift at parties). 
  • Using contrasting wrapping paper makes your gift stand out. 
  • This method is nearly as easy to execute as the traditional gift wrapping method. 
  • This is a great way of adding interest when wrapping a simple shape, such as a book, without having to spend more money on ribbon or other trims.

Gift wrapping idea of the week: Name beads

You’ve probably seen these letter beads used to create names on jewellery, but have you seen them incorporated into gift wrapping before?


Why we love it:

  • Use these beads on gifts for anymore – men, women or children or any age. White or cream beads with black text will coordinate with any wrapping colours.

Gift wrapping idea of the week: Kraft paper with yarn ball

Grab a ball of yarn, some kraft paper and a marker and have some fun with this idea…


Why we love it:
  • Lots of people would have yarn/string, plain paper and a marker lying around at home, so no fancy materials required
  • You’re only limited by your imagination, but if you’re stuck for ideas then this is a cool one. 
  • The red twine looks great against the natural coloured kraft paper. Pick a bold colour that contrasts with your paper if you want you twine design to stand out.
