SweetPrints: Wrap Your Gifts With Love


I have been receiving a few winter sale messages lately. This means its time to do some Christmas shopping! I managed to pick up a couple of gifts for my family this past week. Although most of the shops offer gift wrapping service for Christmas, as a SweetP co-founder, I prefer to wrap my own gifts. Below is a quick tutorial on how I did it. Happy gift wrapping!

1. Wrap your gift with a the christmas theme wrapping paper.
2. Prepare a 1cm width paper stripe and join the ends together to form a circle. For this, I used some of my leftover paper stripes from my X’mas Paper Wreath post.
3. Press the circle down and stick the middle together as in the diagram.
4. Repeat step 2 and 3. Stick the two stripes together as in the diagram.
5. Repeat step 2 to 4 but with narrower stripe this time. It is about half the width of the first set.
6. Stick the two sets together as in the diagram.
7. Stick a rhinestone in the center.
8. Place the paper bow on your gift box and stick small cotton balls onto the box.
