Here it is…the last project in our gift wrapping series. Today’s tutorial is partially Inspired by the winter wonderland that will be a part of our Feature Display at the Christmas Show this year.
Creating the Faux Bois Wrapping Paper
Measure out a piece of kraft paper that will wrap around the box. Using a metallic marker and draw the faux bois pattern on to the piece of paper.
Place double sided tape on the gift box. Align the seams and attach the paper to the box accordingly.
Fold over the excess wrapping paper for a clean seam.
Using a precision cutter, trim the paper to fit with the diameter of the box.
Put double sided tape on the box, and firmly affix the wrapping paper on to it.
Trim off the excess wrapping paper at the bottom of the box.
Cut vertically every half an inch along the gift wrap paper. Affix double sided tape and fold down the wrapping paper on to the bottom of the gift box.
Repeat the same steps on the other end of the box.
Paper Streamer Christmas Trees
Trace a cone template on to a piece of card stock. Pinterest has lots of options to choose from.
Affix double sided tape on to the cardboard.
Layer by layer, attach the streamer on to the cardboard. For more texture, fold the stream in half, and make small cuts along to the bottom of the top layer.
Trim the excess paper streamers, and roll the cardboard into a cone shape. Your Christmas tree is ready! Affix pom pom or any other embellishment to give your tree the festive finish!
To give your plastic animal an extra holiday spirit, we decided to put a scarf on the polar bear (we also painted it silver to give it an extra holiday shine). Measure a piece of washi tape to create the scarf.
Fold the piece of tape in half.
Attach the tape on to the animal, and polar bear is ready for the holidays! The washi tape is perfect for creating the wind swept look!
Inspired by the skating ring (we have daily skating performances, and a special appearance by Josée Chouinard) we have at the Show this year, use clear vase fillers to create small pieces of ices on the top of the box.
Notice, fashionista bear also changed into something a little more festive! You can also attach white pom pom to create snow balls on your winter wonderlandscape!
And we are done!
