Portlebay’s Pimped Christmas Wrapping

Gift giving at Christmas is one of the many delightful parts of the festive period! We love the joy that it brings and all the prep that comes with it! However, a gift wouldn’t be as enchanting without the decorative wrap and accessories! So we have come up with four simple but chic looks for you to pimp your Christmas wrapping (these looks work best wrapped around boxes.)

You will need:

  • Brown wrapping paper (parcel paper)
  • Some pretty/festive twine
  • Some festive accessories to tie onto the parcel (these can be purchased at any shops that sell crafty things!)
  • Cello tape
  • Scissors

Step 1: Measure up and cut accordingly the amount of brown paper that is required to cover your present. Carefully wrap the gift, but do be attentive as brown paper does crease easily and so any folds that you may need to re-do could leave crinkles.

Step 2: Take the twine and tie it around the gift (not to tightly else the paper will crinkle). Once you have brought the twine back to the front side, tie it into a simple knot making sure that you still have quite a lot twine left for fastening your accessory.

Step 3: Place your festive accessory on top of the twine knot and then carefully tie a tight knot to keep the decoration secure. To finish off the look tie a bow on top of the knot and trim any extra twine. TA- DAH!

We would love to see how you’ve pimped your Christmas wrapping, do send us some snaps!
