Washi Tape Gift Wrap

4 Ways to Wrap Your Gifts This Christmas #christmas #gift #wrapping #easy #washi #tape #posca #cricut #reindeer

You Will Need How to Make

1. Begin by wrapping your gift in brown paper, and securing with sellotape.

2. Next, pick a washi tape and carefully stick down, starting on the underneath of your present, winding it all the way around your gift until you meet your starting point, then trim and stick down the end.

Top Tip! It can be a little tricky to get the tape in a straight line – just work slowly and remember that the tape peels off quite easily without ruining the paper if you make a mistake!

3. Repeat step 2 using two other washi tape designs. 4. Finish off by wrapping in a ribbon of your choice, and tying a big bow on top.

You Will Need How to Make

1. Connect the Cricut Explore to the pc/laptop/Mac/iPad/iPhone, log on to your Design Space account and click ‘create new project’.

2. Click ‘add text’ and type the font letters required.

Top Tip! Use separate text boxes for each letter if you want them to be in different fonts.

3. Select the font required. Resize the letters as required by first highlighting the image and then dragging the corner point. The size appears in a black text box as the image is altered.

4. In this project: ‘K’ is Don Juan – Under Pressure font, sized at 2.3” x 2.7”. ‘S’ is Folk Art Festival font, sized at 2.3” x 3.2”. Alter the layer colours so that the ‘K’ and the bottom layer of the ‘S’ are the same.

5. Open ‘insert shape’ andselect ‘circle’. Resize the circle to be about 0.2”. Position it, then attach it to the ‘K’, top left.

6. Cut the layers from glitter cardstock, setting the Smart Dial™ to ‘custom’ and selecting ‘Cardstock glitter’.

Top Tip! Use the scraper tool to apply the cardstock to the cutting mat to ensure good contact and no air bubbles. Use the spatula tool to carefully remove the cut images, minimising damage to both the image and the cutting mat.

7. Glue the ‘S’ layers together. Hot glue it into position on the parcel.

8. Tie metallic thread through the hole in the ‘K’. Tie it on to the ribbon parcel.

 

Reindeer Thumb Print Gift Wrap

4 Ways to Wrap Your Gifts This Christmas #christmas #gift #wrapping #easy #washi #tape #posca #cricut #reindeer

You Will Need How to Make

1. Begin by wrapping your gift in brown paper, and securing with sellotape.

2. Next, pour some brown paint into a dish or palette. Using one of your fingers (your index finger is usually easiest), dip your fingertip into the paint so it covers the pad of your fingertip.

3. Gently press onto the gift wrap so you leave a fingerprint behind.

4. Repeat this process all over your gift wrap, spacing evenly apart. Leave to dry.

5. Go back and use the fineliner to draw little stick antlers out of the top of each fingerprint.

6. Add on a mini pom to a few prints on each side, using PVA glue, and leave to dry.

7. Finish by adding a red ribbon and tying in a bow at the top.

 

Posca Gift Wrap

4 Ways to Wrap Your Gifts This Christmas #christmas #gift #wrapping #easy #washi #tape #posca #cricut #reindeer

You Will Need How to Make

1. Begin by wrapping your gift in brown paper, and securing with sellotape.

2. Decide on a design for your paper – I chose to do trees and snowflakes using simple shapes and lines that were easy to replicate.

3. Shake your posca pen to get the ink flowing and then carefully use to draw your design. I started on one side from the top, repeating the pattern in a line, and then continued underneath, spacing the next set of patterns underneath the gap from the first.

4. Leave to dry.

5. Finish off by tying some red and white bakers twine around your gift and add a decoration or gift tag if you prefer.
