Nice gift wrap is a lovely finishing touch to make any present extra special. Here at Bird's Yard we have our very own gift wrapping expert who's here to help you wrap the perfect present! Zoe from All Wrapped Up By Alice has created an easy to follow tutorial to make sure that your presents are always look their best and show that extra bit of love.

How to wrap gifts by All Wrapped Up By Alice

Materials you'll need...

  • wrapping paper
  • co-ordinating tag
  • ribbon/string
  • scissors
  • sticky tape
And Zoe has one more suggestion if you have an odd shaped gift:

"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!"

The steps...

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.
