Wrapping Paper:

Step 1

Start off with a concept sketch of your design. To identify which space you should use for your illustration, proceed as follows: Place the gift on the paper as though you were going to wrap it. Now carefully fold the wrapping paper upwards on all four edges. You can now make out the shape of a rectangle from the slight crease in the paper. This is the space for your illustration.

Step 2

Draw three baubles with a pencil using paper circle stencils. A compass may damage the wrapping paper. Consequently, use a somewhat stronger paper for drawing on and cutting out. Alternatively, you can also use appropriately sized glasses as a stencil.

Step 3

Then draw your illustrations one by one on the wrapping paper. I used the Pitt Artist Pen fineliner 1.5 in white 101 for this.

Step 4

Now place your gift on the paper again as described in step 1 and wrap it. A little ribbon around it, and then that’s it!

Gift Tag: 

Step 1

First make a little sketch to plan out where you would like to place details such as squiggles, for example, and how you would like to arrange the words.

Step 2

Gently draw your lettering using a pencil. You can divide up the available space well in this way.

Step 3

Draw your saying on the gift tag word by word.

Take your time doing this. Use more pressure to create thicker lines and less pressure to keep the lines thin, thus creating a beautiful writing style. I used the Pitt Artist Pen Brush B in white 101 for the lettering.

Finally, draw in the squiggles and your gift tag is complete.
