And with Mother's Day soon approaching (15th March) it's great timing too...
Materials you'll need...
- wrapping paper
- co-ordinating tag
- sticky tape
"The most important thing to remember is we're after crisp edges and neat corners. If you've chosen a gift for your mum that is an irregular shape, you might want to consider placing it in a box with some shredded tissue, before attempting to wrap it!"
There are 8 simple steps to wrapping the gift - all of which can be found in handy You Tube videos over on Zoe's blog
1. measure your paper
2. cut your paper
3. start wrapping
4. finish wrapping
5. measure your ribbon
6. tie your ribbon
7. create a bow
8. add the tag
And of course, once you know the basics you can experiment with the details trying different ribbons, colour combinations and extra details.
