Hey, hands up if you want to spend loads of money on wrapping paper! Not me. But I also have an aching desire to create beautiful parcels that get squeals of excitement from their recipients because I’m that weird person who actually really LOVES wrapping gifts.
Aah, ’tis the season to eat, drink, be merry and grab a cheeky kebab before you pretend to be less pissed while you pay the babysitter. Just me? I know I’m not alone.
Well, while you’re visiting your friendly neighbourhood junk food supplier, why not ask them for a bunch of their kebab bags so you can make a dazzling paper star?
MINIMISE WRAP RAGE
There’s going to be a lot of wrap-rage in the next few weeks as we all try to tame rolls of paper. Minimise the grumbles by putting cardboard toilet roll tubes around the roll to stop it from unraveling.
The other day I made some of these in the park with fellow Ladylander Celia. We got really into it… no idea where our kids were, but we were having fun like a couple of bushcraft nerds.
These are so simple because all you need is LEAVES!… that’s it.
