As Christmas quickly approaches there is one thing that I haven’t done yet – wrap presents. I always wait until the last possible second to wrap gifts, so I thought I would change it up this year. I went shopping this week and got some great new Elmer’s products to use in my gift wrapping. I really enjoy that I can get all of the products I need from Walmart and don’t have to worry about clipping coupons, or stopping by the craft store  to get Elmer’s items. I can just pick them up when I get the rest of my groceries.

In this post, I’m going to show you a few different things you can do to jazz up your holiday Gift Wrap. Be sure to check out my shopping trip on Google +.

Present:

Step 1:  Measure out the amount of gift wrap you need and place your box in the center. Cutting the paper is easy with the X-ACTO Precision Scissors. I have had mine for quite some time and they are excellent for cutting gift wrap. Fold over one entire corner. Then fold back and forth several times to create a creative fold in your wrapping paper.

Step 2: Proceed to wrap the present as normal, holding the fold in place and you will get something that looks like this:

Step 1:  Using your X-ACTO Knife and X-ACTO Ruler, Measure and cut 6 long strips out of the other coordinating wrapping paper. Cut 4 of these strips 3 inches shorter than the previous.

Step 2:  Turn each strip over and place a strip of Elmer’s double-sided tape. Peel off the back of the tape and bend the sides down to tape them together. Do this for all strips. Also take one of the remaining cuts from the smaller strips and roll it, securing it with tape.

Step 3:  Stack each of the longer strips on top of each other using a piece of Elmer’s double-sided tape.

Step 4: Continue to layer the smaller strips and the small rolled one in the center. This will complete your bow.
