TUTO : Gift packages

Not your average gift wrap: a DIY idea that will make your tree sparkle and cause "waaaahs" and "ooooohhs"! With images of prints hunted on @leboncoin or printed from the internet, some ribbons, pretty tags and glossy paper, upgrade your gift wrap game 🎉

Your gifts will be even more beautiful, and those to whom you give them will be even more touched by this attention 🫶

👉Forthis DIY you need:

  • gift wrap, preferably in solid colors (and if it's metallic it's even more beautiful!)
  • ribbons, you can choose a range of similar tones or on the contrary be completely multicolored 
  • you can also add some shiny braids
  • labels (or thick paper cutouts)
  • double-sided tape and regular tape
  • green glue
  • a cutter or scalpel
  • scissors of course
  • and ... gifts! 

👉How todo :

Start by gathering all your images. There are lots and lots of old book lots on @leboncoin at very low prices, to find beautiful flower prints to scan or take pictures of and print. These are gold mines for DIY in general, these print books. Search with the key words "colored flower prints", there are wonders! Otherwise, you can also search for royalty free images on the internet! Print everything in the best quality possible.

Next, cut out all the flowers with a scalpel. 

Then wrap all your gifts with the paper.

Stick your cut out flowers with the double sided tape: it will allow you to move them if needed, and to create games of over and under with the ribbons.

And now for the ribbons and braids: cut them one by one, adapting them to the size of your packages. Attach them with double-sided tape or a glue dot. Crisscross them to create beautiful patterns! 🥰

Personalize it with pretty labels, or by creating your own by cutting colored Canson-type paper with serrated or zig-zag scissors... ✂️

And ... TA-DA!!! 💜
