Bored of doing the same old thing with your gift wrapping and looking for some creative inspiration this Christmas? Then look no further than Kraft paper!
Being plain, Kraft paper is one of the most versatile papers to use. A blank canvas, it can change its look quite dramatically (depending on what you do with it!)
In this months blog we’re going to show you some crafty and creative ways to transform your Kraft paper using just a chalk marker, a few bits an bobs found around the house (or garden) and a little imagination!
Start by wrapping your gifts in kraft paper…Not looking very festive? Don’t panic! What could be more Christmassy than snow? Queue the chalk marker! Generously add lots of white spots over your kraft paper and voila….See how easy was that!
With this super snowy background whatever you now add will be sure to look fabulously festive, so it’s time to be creative and have some fun! Here’s some we did earlier…!
We simply love the Scandinavian look and it’s so on trend! We’ve added a wooden decoration and tied it in with some plain white satin ribbon. Ta dah!
Simplicity in itself….We’ve added a red felt coaster (that we got free in a home magazine some time ago) and tied on some matching wool we had in our craft basket. Easy but effective!
Got lots of buttons you don’t know what to do with? Why not use them to make a cute picture. We’ve added in some wool scarves for colour and used a marker to draw in some detail and complete the picture. The buttons can then be placed in their final position and securely stuck with double sided tape or glue.
Ever wondered what you can do with your Washi tape? Why not recreate a look of bunting with some string and write a festive message! (Well as long as it’s not ‘bah humbug’ that is!)
Want a classy look but in a hurry? Just add some fresh foliage and pine cones then tie with a simple white satin ribbon.
Hello to Spring and to everyone with a Spring Birthday! What a lovely time of year to have one …With days growing warmer and sunnier and flashes of colour starting to appear in the garden it truly is a beautiful time of year.
It’s also a time of year our Creative Spring Gift Wrapping demonstrations are in full swing and it’s such a pleasure to tour around the UK meeting different groups, teaching them lots of new gift wrapping skills and bringing the outside in with the beautiful spring feel gift wrap and ribbons we’ve sourced.
One of the wrapping papers we simply love and have been using for our personal
wrapping and in our demonstrations is this gorgeous ‘Bold Roses and Garden Ditsy’ double sided paper. Doesn’t it just shout springtime?!
And being a double sided wrapping paper too this means you can wrap with it ….
Or….(Should the urge take your fancy) you could get creative and make some pretty spring decorations to adorn your house or garden with instead. How lovely!
