Christmas wrapping part 1..


There is definitely some friendly competition between us over the wrapping of Christmas presents. Every year the pressure is on to think up something just a little bit different - all in good fun of course! We thought we would share some of our ideas for wrapping, this time with tissue paper (because it is cheap and comes in lots of colours) and baking paper (because most people would have a  roll in their kitchen drawers). 

We love the look of the baking paper when it has been pleated and you can see the variations in the thickness and transparency (above left). It is also effective when cut and layered over another colour (top right). We used the fact that you can see through the baking paper in the wrapping of the snowflake present (below right), simply sticking some paper cutting in between the layer of tissue and baking paper. The present with the green ribbon (below left) has a tissue paper flower and baking paper leaves.  We used double sided sticky tape to make everything neat at the back. We have memories of horribly smelly and incredibly sticky double sided tape from years ago, but recently they have improved it dramatically and now we couldn't be without it!

Watch this spot for more wrapping ideas coming soon!

Thanks girls. I would have never thought of baking paper...way cheaper than vellum. I love making tissue paper flowers, and these are so sweet,

Oooh I thought I'd stumbled onto Martha's blog by mistake you clever girls! I reckon there's a wrapping consultancy business in the making here like the amazing Jane Meanes in the U.K.!
