Christmas Rapping

Hope you're having a fun pre-Christmas week. Today I've got a few gift wrapping ideas for you to use your kits to add a little bit of festive flair to your gifts.
The post title spelling is deliberate by the way, an ode to my favourite Christmas song to wrap presents to :)

Idea 1:

You can dress up a plain cardboard box using a stamp and white ink to make a 'snow' pattern. I've used some of the snowflake die cuts from the Lite kit here too and cut out some paper to add layers using circle dies and then finished with some Thickers in silver to add the recipient name.

Idea 2:

This gift card is really simple to create but looks like you've spent longer making it!
Start by punching a hole half way along the spine of your card then thread through string. I've used the twine from the Christmas kit here.

Thread on bits and pieces, you can use tags from the kits as I've done here and bits of cut paper. Scraps are great to use for this. Punch holes in the tops of each piece and thread them on the string.

When you get to the end of the card tie the string tight. You can add more embellishments on top gluing them to your strung pieces.

These are the sequins and gems from the embellishment kit just adding a bit of extra flair to a tree design cut from the Pinkfresh Studio paper in the Christmas kit.

Idea 3:
On the new kits' Pinterest board I pinned an idea that used large letters to add to gift boxes and I wanted to use the Lite kit large alphabets like that so with this last idea I made a really simple plain gift box and then dressed it up using the large alpha and more of the ephemera bits from the Christmas kit, (Fancy Pants Wish Season).

The outside of the box lid I glued the pom pom trim from the Christmas trim around the top.

I then added a piece of patterned paper to the top of the box, (more Fancy Pants Wish Season from the Christmas kit).

To finish I added the twine around the box and fixed the ephemera bits on to it with a mini peg, (from the Sept/Oct Lite kit).

Hope this has given you some ideas for to add some flair to your Christmas wrapping!

Happy Christmas
