If you have a present, say, a couple of books, first get a cardboard box ( cat food box will do) .
Get a heap of old Christmas cards and sort them in colours-like for instance red, green and gold like here below.
I decided to go with gold as I has quite a lot of cards with gold bits on them.
Draw a silhouette of a seasonal Christmassy shape, for instance, a star, Christmas tree, reindeer, or use a cookie cutter to help you to get the silhouette- draw this silhouette on a white sheet of paper.
I decided to go for a stag, stars and Christmas trees.
Cut the silhouette out with scissors so you will be left with a piece of white paper where the silhouette is cut out of, of your chosen shape( the stag in my case.)( see below)
Put the white piece of paper with the "open" silhouette shape on top of a Christmas card on a bit that is purely colour-and draw with a pencil , using the white paper with the silhoutte, as a guide to help you draw the silhouette on the coloured paper.
Cut the shape you drew on coloured paper, out.
You will now - in my case - have a stag- or whatever shape you chose- in gold.
To the right in the picture here above you can see what I mean about the white paper with the silhouette left out.You will use this to put on bits of Christmas cards which you have grouped together so that the gold bits overlap and you only have gold card .
You can let your imagination run free and go for whatever design you like.
Add a couple of ribbons that go with the rest of the colours and you're done .
I will show more wrapping ideas soon, until such time- enjoy your wrapping- see you then!
Have you wrapped all your present yet?? I look foward to your comments!
