Start by wrapping your Christmas present in a neutral gift wrap. We used a matte black paper that really shows off the photo.

Then, take your ribbon and wrap it around the package. Finish by attaching it with glue. If you want to really secure it in place, you can of course glue the entire band. Make sure you use a transparent glue so that it is not visible through the thin ribbon.

Tip 2: Customised stickers

How to do it:

Wrap your gift in matte red wrapping paper and tie a piece of hemp cord around it. Then, cut a small amount of foliage and arrange it like a star. Use a glue gun to make sure the star sticks together.

To secure the label in place, cut a round piece of your gift paper that’s the same size as your sticker. Glue the piece directly onto the foliage with a glue gun.
