It's a wrap...

here's some Christmas wrapping that you can get involved in...
all you need is:
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Strips of paper
  • Small piece of string
  • And an (optional) embellishment. (I used a Starbucks chocolate gold coin, but you could use buttons or doilies or nothing at all)
STEP ONE: take your strip of paper and fold it back and forth like you are making a paper fan. 
(the width of the strip depends on the size of your embellishment. Play around until you find the size that you like best. I had a few trial and errors...)
STEP TWO: Tie a small piece of string around the centre of the folded paper.
STEP THREE: Join the ends together in a circle with tape and.... TADA!! simple!
so you can take your present and put one of these fake wreaths on like this:
and if you want, you can add an embellishment. I used Starbucks chocolate gold and silver coins...
and then i got carried away:


it's very north-polish.

Happy Wrapping...

Yay! glad to have inspired you! black and white newspaper would look awesome with silver and red embellishments :) this news print was brownish - so it worked well with golds and greens :)
