Plan and prep. Choose your colour scheme and your product. If you would like to replicate the design we have featured in this project, simply refer to list above. This tutorial will assume you’ve selected these items.
GIFT 1 – Pearled up: Starting at the back of the gift, begin to wrap Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Green/White Swiss Dot in a straight line all the way around the box and end where you started. Repeat wrapping your tape in straight lines to create a striped pattern using Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Pink and Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Pastel Blue. Space stripes equal distance apart, alternating colors. Wrap gift with a pearl tree garland perpendicular to the colored stripes you created, trim where the ends meet at the front. Secure garland by wrapping the two ends together with magic tape. Fold a longer piece of tape over where you just secured the garland together. Trim the bottom to create a banner.
GIFT 2 – Crisscrossed: Using Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Pastel Blue create the traditional “ribbon wrap pattern”. Using Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Pink begin creating a crisscross pattern crossing the middle of the gift with the middle of your length of tape. Continue angling varying lengths of Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Green/White Swiss Dot around the center of the gift, creating a deconstructed bow. Adhere the three white mini ornaments in the centre to complete the look, using Scotch® GiftWrap Tape.
GIFT 3 – Structured: Wrap the top of the gift horizontally in alternating tapes using Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Pink, Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Pastel Blue and Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Green/White Swiss Dot to create a rainbow stripe. Add vertical stripes perpendicular to the rainbow stripe to the bottom of the gift. String tree ornaments on to bakers twine and wrap around the top of the gift, securing the back with tape in a coordinating colour.
EXPERT TIP: You can find these ornaments at many stores. You don’t have to use the exact ones, just get creative.
