How-to: Holiday wrapping
Refreshing and peaceful, green is easy on the eyes. Choose simple accessories - thin and sheer ribbons, soft feathers and small sparkly beads are enough to dazzle.
Tip: Use a glue gun to hold trimmings in place and ribbons in straight lines.
Out of the blue
Electric, dynamic and dramatic - this bright blue is an engaging colour that expresses exhiliration. Glittery ribbon, cute polka-dots and a sparkly monogram are funky details that add cheeky interest and personality.
Tip: For a unique spin on a traditional gift card, creatively monogram gifts with scrapbooking initials.
Feminine, flirtatious and full of charm, pink encourages friendliness. We love these sweet cream soda touches: fluffy feather pompoms, sparkly beads, chunky ribbon, and pretty dot and blossom motifs. Perfect for the little ladies in your life!
Tip: Go for the unexpected. A delightfully textured pompom and a flower-motif ribbon give gifts a bit of whimsy.
Purple is a favourite of creative types because it's a blend of stimulating red and calming blue. Multiple accessories in similar shades of violet in different textures create standout presents that produce an awe factor under the Christmas tree.
Tip: Lara found this violet eucalyptus leaf at Michael's Arts & Crafts Superstore (michaels.com). Attached to the top of a parcel, the detail transforms presents into sophisticated displays.
