Elevated Gift Wrapping - Home & Family


1. Twigs and Twine
-Start with wrapped package
-Use colored baking twine to wrap around the package repeatedly
-Go to your backyard, or christmas tree and cut a few tree clippings and insert them into the twine.

2. Felt Tree Cutouts
-Start with wrapped package
-Cut silhouettes of trees out of felt and sew them together end to end.
-Attach to package.

3. Sewn Shapes
-Double over wrapping paper with design facing inside
-Trace out desired shape and cut it out. (Make sure your gift fits inside the perimeter.) Since the paper is doubled over, you will be cutting two equal shapes.
-Use a sewing machine, or hand-sew, all of the edges together. Be sure to place your gift between the two sheets before you finish.

4. 3D Poinsettias
-Start with wrapped package
-Cut out a desired shape from the rest of your wrapping paper
-Use that shape as a template and cut it out from colored construction paper
-Attach each poinsettia to each other with glue or tacks; turning them in different directions to add more body
