I love sitting down with a festive movie and wrapping up the Christmas presents, Unfortunately I’m not very good at it. I always end up with random pieces left over here and there and no idea what to do with them. It makes me think of my late great gran who every year used to meticulously open her presents so she didn’t damage the Paper. She’d then iron it out and pop it in the cupboard to reuse the next year, waste not want not! Which is exactly what led us to making this super cute wrapping paper Christmas card design.
Here’s what we used

How to make this wrapping paper Christmas card
First start by making the shape of the card you want to make, for this one we folded an A5 peice of card and trimmed it into a square.
Take the wrapping paper and cut out the shape of the present, we chose a square to match the card. Glue it down on the front of your Christmas card.
Take two lengths of ribbon and cut one to the length of the wrapping paper and one to width of the wrapping paper. Glue the strips down centrally across the presents to make a plus sign.
Take another length of ribbon and tie it into a bow. I will be uploading some videos on how to tie bows but for now there are some excellent videos on YouTube if you need some help. Glue the bow in place at the top of the present, then add a special message if desired and the card is finished! Aren’t these cute? Such a fun way to use up old wrapping paper.
