I actually quite enjoy the process of wrapping presents, I find it quite therapeutic and love finding pretty papers as well as new wrapping ideas. Sometimes you just want a special present to stand out and shine a little, so I've been looking at simple ways this can be done.
I was recently sent some gorgeous glittery tapes from Duck to try out and I had no idea that you could buy such pretty duck tapes! There is so much you can do with these, the crafting opportunities are pretty endless. I decided to incorporate mine into my wrapping though this month, seeing as I will be spending a LOT of my time doing this, it makes sense to see how Duck could help.
I started with a simple box shape (always a firm favourite!), wrapped in paper and added a belt round each side made from tape. Super easy!
Next construct a bow, which was basically two big loops doubled back on themselves, with a little tape belt.
Secure the loops in place with the belt using a little bit of tape. Fold them back to 'puff' them up a bit.
Make a sticky loop with a little tape and fix the bow in place on top of your gift.
I think the tape works really well and looks really fun! For special gifts that need that bit of extra sparkle, without being too fiddly, this tape is just perfect!
