Project : Wrap It by Sam Dunne
Posted on June 02 2014Receiving a well wrapped gift is (to me!) a gift in itself – give me gorgeous gift wrap and I’d be quite happy with an empty box!! Good looking gifts don’t have to be put in the ‘too hard’ basket though, with a few quick embellishments and my top tips you’ll have the art of gorgeous gifts all wrapped up. My top tips for simple yet gorgeous gift wrap: 1. Colour combinations : Keep it simple 2. Prints : Mix them up 3. Texture : Is a must The great news is that Dailylike has done all of the hard work for you in sticking to my top tips. Shop their ‘stories’ across products and you’ve got co-ordinated colour combinations and prints across a range of textures and elements. Skill Level Beginner Materials Dailylike Wrapping Paper – Daily Gray Dailylike Wrapping Paper – Winter Forest Dailylike Twine Bobbin – Deep Yellow Dailylike Twine Bobbin – Gray Dailylike Fabric Buttons – Petit Embellish It :: Paper tassels :: Cut a piece of paper double the width you want your finished tassel length: Small tassel 3 inches x 4 inches Large tassel 4 inches x 6 inches Fold your paper in half. Using scissors or a blade, cut at regular intervals leaving approx. ¼ inch uncut at the top (where the folded edge is). Roll up your tassel and secure the end with double sided tape. Give it as much or as little ‘fluffing up’ as you desire. :: Twine Poms :: Use the twine pom tutorial from my Dailylike Easter project and add a few twigs for stems to create a bundle of pom blooms to your gifts. :: Twine Tassels :: Wrap your twine around something the width of your desired finished tassel length. The more you wrap, the fuller your tassel will be. I used the width of my 3 fingers and wrapped around 50 times. Slide your bundle off and tie the top off with a second piece of twine. Take another piece of twine and wrap around the bundle about ¼ inch from the top. Cut the bottom of the loops and trim as desired. :: Twine Bundles :: Wrap your twine around something the width of your desired finished bundle. I used the width of my 2 fingers and wrapped around 15 times. Slide your bundle off and tie the centre with a second piece of twine. Affix button to the bundle centre with a piece of twine. Gently pull the loops open and around the button. :: Buttons :: A few buttons and twine are the quickest cutest fool-proof embellishment, thread through and ta-dah!
