Well Christmas season is over and we are straight into birthdays in my house. It’s mum’s birthday this week so I’ve been making plans. She is a crazy-obsessed Luther fan so I bought her the dvd box sets. At the moment she has them all on record on the tv and basically, it’s taking up valuable recording space for more important things … like the shows I watch.
Tip 1: Always a good idea to buy presents for selfish reasons 🙂
Here’s the two-toned wrapping idea I tried:
I found two wrapping papers I liked and couldn’t choose between them so decide to use both. (excuse my apple product placement in the background there!)
I taped the first paper a third of the way down to hold it in place and then wrapped as normal.
Quick aside: How good looking is he?!?!
No wonder mum likes this show. Ok, moving on…
I placed the second sheet over the top and used a little bit of tape to secure it and continued wrapping.
You’ll notice at the back there’s a bit of overhang where the paper over laps but that doesn’t matter because I glued ribbon over it. Normal pritt stick works (not sure what’s it’s called in American) 😀
