One way you get creative is wrapping a gift. I know that you have done this many times, but to wrap a gift is a form of simple creativity. It’s something we all do and something that you can use as creative time. There are no end to possibilities for getting creative, whether it’s homemade gift wrap, different ways of tying ribbons and bows and little finishing flourishes.
I love wrapping gifts and my simple tips would be a roll of brown paper is a great basic to have on hand. You can print on it, draw on it and it can be accessorised for any recipient with different colour ribbons. One other tip, for neat edges I always use double sided tape!
I made some videos for you, because you’ll be surprised how many people ask how to wrap and how to tie a ribbon.
