Easy Christmas Wrap ups
Christmas wrap ups. If you have more dash than cash this Christmas try wrapping up your gifts in these stunning covers. They look as if they cost a million dollars but they can be made on a budget using discarded shoe boxes, plain packing paper and scraps from your sewing box and garden. It’s the idea that counts.
Each of these gift wraps is easy to make but the secret to success is to work neatly and with strong images. The carrier bag with the cut out star is a particularly good example of a Christmas wrap and looks really smashing if there is a cheeky, cuddly bear peeping out through the window. While the pop up Christmas tree idea would work equally well using a snowman or shooting star motif.
First Draw Your Pattern
Draw your pattern on a piece of tracing paper first. The pattern can then be traced on to the wrap and cut out or alternatively you can make up a cardboard template. This is especially helpful if you need to draw up the motif several times on each gift wrap.
Enlarge or reduce the size of the motifs to a size that suites your gift.
Mix & Match
Let your imagination run wild and mix and match these ideas to create more stunning Christmas wrap ideas for the presents around your tree. Remember the best wrapped presents are tailor made to suit the personality of the persons who will receive them.
