Learn to make original gift wrapping
Packaging a gift often becomes a serious and difficult task when you do not know what to choose. As you know, the best gift is made with your own hands and from a pure heart. Therefore, if the gift is ready, but you don’t know what to give it to, a homemade gift bag from a regular newspaper, leaflet or magazine sheet can help you out. Such packaging will not only save you time to choose, but also make your present gift the most original. For production you will need: - A sheet of newspaper, magazine page or newspaper. Depends on the size of your gift. I had to pack a brooch, so I made a small package from ordinary leaflets. - ruler, scissors and glue for paper.From the sheet we need to make a hollow basis for the package, so the first thing is to glue the two sides of the sheet.To do this, we bend the edge of the sheet with one hand, arrange the paper in length.Then spread the glued strip with glue and fold the sheet in half so that the strip sealed the second side with the first.It should work such a parallelepiped.We connect the sides in order to create an accordion between them. We do it on both sides, pressing down with scissors.We start making the bottom of the package. To do this, bend the base at one end. About two centimeters, less, but not more.We open the bent part like thisso that the inner corners of each side connect to the bend strip inside the package and the bottom opens well.Now we need to bend the edges to close the package and make a one-piece bottom. With a pencil, I marked the places of the bend.We grease the bent parts with glue and, pressing down each edge with scissors, carefully seal the bottom. Try to glue the parts smoothly so that the package opens well.So, in just an hour, I have turned out so cute, quite strong and original package in which I put the brooch. It also fits well with a small postcard, earrings, a pendant, a squirrel or another pleasant trifle. In such a package, if you make it from a map, you can originally give friends and family souvenirs from the country,in which you have visited.Experimenting with paper density and coloring it is possible get a wide variety of packages for all occasions. Try it! It is generally not difficult and does not take too much time. But emotions, both at the time of manufacturing, and then, when you give a gift, you get a lot.
