Objects old, vintage, hand made or upcyled, and old techniques with a modern twist

Wrapping Presents

Wrapped Presents 1

I started wrapping Christmas presents last week so that they are ready to give to the friends I will be seeing in the run-up to Christmas. I really like the presents I wrap to look nice, so it tends to take a little longer than it should.

I particularly enjoy finding slightly different materials to use, such as the red feathers used on the cube-shaped parcel here. Present wrapping can be a great opportunity for upcycling: the wide, textured, red cotton ribbon actually started life as curtain header tape! And don’t tell anyone, but the lovely, thick, luxurious wrapping paper in these pictures was actually free wallpaper samples…
