I always think it’s lovely to receive a beautifully wrapped gift and there are so many quick and simple ways to make gift wrapping special and personal to the person receiving the gift.
Here are some ideas I’ve found which can be made using things lying around the home such as news paper, bits of lace and easy computer programmes, most of us now have and use.
If you have an awkward present to wrap, this is a simple idea, using cheap brown paper food bags with the handles removed and decorated with an item of your choice.
This is a lovely way to decorate a parcel for a vintage collector or crafter, using scraps of lac, ribbon and jewellery.
So simple yet effective, recycled newspaper or sheet music tied with butchers twine.
Hand made gift tags which can be fed through the printer or even better if you have a vintage type writer!
Children always appreciate extra sweets with their presents
Two lovely ideas for somebody who has a special place in their hearts.
Personalised paper which has been hand printed
I made this paper for my daughter Amber in Photoshop, using American type writer font. It took no time at all but will be special for her.
Red and white themes always look stylish and festive
