Valentines – Gift wrapping

I did some valentines gift wrapping to sell this year. I made handmade gift wrap, using a heart stencil and red spray paint. The effect was something special. It was for a heart shaped box of chocolates. It took me forever to wrap around a heart shape – something I’ve never done before!! I kept the colour scheme white and red for this, very traditional! I added a cute handmade tag and also curling ribbon.

My Mum wanted me to wrap a cardigan for dad for Valentines. I used plain brown paper to wrap it, but I then decorated it with a decoupage gift tag with matching ribbon. The tag I made was a mixture of my artwork on card and neon orange card; I layered it up with foam pads! I stuck alphabet stickers for Dads name too!
