What do you love the most about buying a gift for someone? For me, I love the process of wrapping the gift in an interesting way that will create more anticipation when is time to open a present. I put together for you a brief tutorial for gift wrapping using only a roll of white paper, a laser printer and grey baker’s twine. Please take a look a below ;)
- Gather your materials: a roll of white paper, baker’s twine and scissors. (I didn’t end up using the white leather cord shown above).
- In a graphics editing program such as Photoshop or you could try to use MS Word too, pick a bold and interesting font. I used the font “Airbag” which you can download for free. In this case, I was celebrating my 16th wedding anniversary, so I chose the number 16 and a traditional sentiment.
- On another document, I wrote the number 16 and also spelled it to create a texture I would use later.
- Wrap your gift with white paper.
- Print both documents I showed above. I chose to print them on photo paper and obtain a nice crisp print. Cut the number 16. The nice thing about the font I used is that is very “forgiving” if you are not the most precise person when it comes to cutting. Cut the sentiment too. I didn’t cut each letter but cut both words separately. Proceed to cut strips of the number sixteen texture as well.
- Layout your cutouts like shown above and glue them to the gift.
These are the finished gifts! Thank you for reading and as always I love hearing from you!
