Christmas is my favourite time of year, the chance to gift wrap a whole lot of presents is like the icing on the cake for me.
I start by wrapping all of my presents in a neutral base paper (I have a weakness for brown paper) and then make a big pile of embellishments that way I can mix and match and try different layers and combinations. My favourite element of wrapping is texture and the mixture of paper and fabric is such a simple but effective contrast.
Here are a few tricks that I like to use to make my wrapping extra special.
Make a small cut at the top of your fabric and then simply tear strips in a variety of widths to make your fabric ribbon.
Buttons are great way to add a pop of colour and some height to your wrap.
Fabric Sticker Rosette
Cut a 1.5 inch strip lengthways from the fabric sticker sheet.
Concertina fold the strip (you can pre mark even intervals on the back if you need).
Peel back the adhesive from just the last fold and attach it to the first concertina fold to create a ring.
Press the centre to create your rosette and affix with a little glue.
Attach a button to the centre.
Use your fabric and cotton ribbon to layer up and create tails for the rosette.
Create rings of herbs tied up with twine and embellish with a cute button.
There are so many wonderful combinations that you can create with just a few items. I hope this has inspired you for your Christmas wrapping this year.
