Christmas Gift Wrap Tutorial

How exciting is Christmas?

There’s so much tinsel and joy! And the carols! Oh, happy days!

The question remains though – however will you wrap the gifts you’ve lovingly purchased for your family and friends?

That’s where this post comes in! I’ll walk you through how I’ve decided to adorn my givings this year. If you follow this tutorial your life can be as amazing as mine. Hashtag, blessed.

Let’s get started!


You will need:

  • 1 x Scissors
  • Wrapping paper (I purchased mine at Coles, but if you think you’re better than me, you can get something posh)
  • Cardboard
  • Embroidery floss
  • Rubber bands
  • 1 x hole punch
  • 1 x Sharpie (for writing and sniffing)
  • 1 x roll of adhesive “sticky” tape

Adorable supplies

Step One

Cut your gift wrap to size and begin wrapping your gift.

Gina is my hero

You’ll note that I’ll be giving copies of Gina Liano‘s biography ‘Fearless: My Life, My Way’ to my family and friends this year.

It’s very important to me that everyone in my world understands Gina’s genius.

It’s not often we get to have outstanding role models.

Step Two

Wrap your gift.

I’m going to just assume you’re capable of doing this step, because this tutorial is more about demonstrating how incredible I am than actually teaching you how to do something.

Just wrap it, you numb-skull.

Step Three

Now you’re ready to prepare your gift tags.

Take a piece of cardboard, and cut it to size.

Work those scissors, girlfriend!

What size? I have faith in your capacity to figure that out!

Step Four

Punch a hole in your gift tag.

Make sure you don’t mess it up. THIS IS CRITICAL. If you make a hash of it your best friend will die and your family will stop loving you.

Push it! Push it real good!

Step Five

Hoo-wee! You’ve been working hard now, haven’t you?

Sounds as though it’s time for a cup of tea.

Gin is best for tea

NB: Feel free to put some liquor in it, but not MILK. Milk is for infants and women that don’t care about the size of their waist. Remember, nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.

Step Six

Address your gift card. This is a vital step. Nothing is more awkward than forgetting which gift is for which loved one. How embarrassment!

We’ve all got one *laughs*

It’s also a cute idea to leave a sweet Christmas message on the other side of the tag.

Turn it on over and let your love shine through!

Just leave me alone.

Step Seven

Put a rubber band around your gift.

You’re doing a wonderful job, keep it up!

Step Eight

Cut a length of embroidery floss.

What length? Figure it out!

Step Nine

Attach your gift card to the rubber band you prepared earlier with a sweet bow. If you’re not sure how to tie a bow, here’s a bow tutorial, because, quite frankly, I’ve lost interest in explaining all of this to you in such vivid detail.

Ta-da!

And you’re done! Place your gift under your tree and get ready to drink too much to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour!
