It's Tuesday! Time for another Top Tip. I'm going to have a break, today, from the December countdown I was doing. I don't really know how to put 17 into this post...
Here's a small tip on how to make your presents look nicer:
Okay, so if you have cheap wrapping paper like myself, here's a way to make your present look more presentable.
I have plain silver, gold and red wrapping paper from Tesco and a tartan roll from there as well.
I went overboard with the tartan...
Compared to those presents, my plain ones look really boring so I experimented and ended up with this:
It's pretty easy to do this and you lessen the amount of wrapping paper that goes to waste as well.
|Cut out or use a piece of wrapping paper that's different to the one you wrapped your present in and fold the edges to make a neat strip of paper.|
|This is what the back looks like.|
Fold in one edge of the strip.
|Place your present on the strip. Make sure the front is on the table/bed/desk and the back is facing you.|
|Wrap the strip around the present - shorten it if you need to - and make sure the folded end ends up on top of the strip.|
|Tape the strip together then tape down the sides onto the present to hold it in place.|
The strip can be wider/thinner and it doesn't have to be central.
I love wrapping presents and I take time to make sure they're really neat.
That's all for now. Stay beautiful x
