Tape Free Christmas wrapping

Aaaaarrrggggghhh, less than 5 weeks to go until Santa arrives!!!

Need inspiration? Our Christmas Pinterest board is brimming with ideas. We also love the cardboard bicycle and the bearded hat (Movember made simple) and promise to keep our eyes peeled for more fabulous-ness right up to the big day.

So what happens when you’ve found the perfect gift and your mind turns to wrapping? This week, Nina (the clever girl) showed me a brilliant way to wrap gift baskets, which involves no tape at all and we thought it so fabulous we had to share.
  1. Cut your cellophane to about 2.5 times the size of your basket 
  2. Centre the cellophane under your basket 
  3. Bring all sides of the cellophane to meet at the highest point of your basket, folding in the short sides first (another pair of hands is useful here) 
  4. Holding the cellophane tightly (to take most of the slack out of it), turn the basket clockwise (this is the trickiest part) 
  5. The cellophane can now be secured with a twist tie, which can then be covered with ribbon (tip – the bigger the basket the broader your ribbon should be). 
  6. In case of any gaping cellophane, pull gently on the top section where all the ends meet. 
Et voila!


And if you still don’t have anything to wrap, challenge us. Go on, you know you want to …..
