Woven gift-wrap // pastel edition ^_^

I noticed that the woven gift-topper I made last year was doing the rounds again on Pinterest so I thought I would make an updated pastel version (pastels seem to be the new neon at the moment).

I bought some quilling strips (0.5cm) to use this time which reduces the labour by about half (I’ve also been working on some more intricate woven ‘things’ for another project…more to come soon). Anyway check out the previous post if you want full instructions.

While I took photos today my boys were making their own presents by wrapping boxes in newspaper. I gave them masking tape to use – much more obedient than sticky tape. They are not usually the ‘sitting-down’ type but they loved it…

Finally, the font used on these images is called soymilk and it’s free to download …yay!

      Hi, I bought then ends together, trimmed them then taped them neatly to the base. You can weave them in at the base too…it just takes more time and is a bit more tricky.

    I use my paper shredder to make quilling strips…it’s what I often do with pieces of scrapbooking paper after I’ve made a card or scrapbooked a page and don’t know what to do with all those left overs. They are always the same width which is important for quilling and crafts using quilling strips.
