Tuesday Tips & Tricks

Christmas Gift Wrapping
Choose the right paper: It’s worth selecting paper that has a bit of weight and thickness to it. You want to be able to pull the wrapping paper taut around the object for a neat finish. Thin paper can often tear at this point.

Size matters: Searching for a suitable box to house an object? Recycle old boxes from previous years or utilize shoe boxes. Another solution is selecting a suitably sized paper bag to discreetly hide any unusually shaped gift.

Tips for tape: For a seamless look, double-sided tape is a great option, although it doesn’t work on papers that have a rough or textured finish. You can also purchase a box of sticky dots, which is a great alternative to tape.

Ribbons: Ensure your ribbon works proportionally with your gift. Avoid placing a thin ribbon on a large box or a wide ribbon on a small jewellery box. Another option is using a ball of jute string, which can be embellished with beads.

Keep it simple: You can almost spend as much money on the wrapping of a gift as you do on its contents! keep costs down by using one or two different wrapping papers, then dressing each gift with ribbons, tags or even intriguing twigs.
