Holiday Gift Wrapping Tutorial

DIY gift wrapping that is out of the box!
Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with a creative holiday gift wrapping tutorial using Gelatos and Pitt Artist Pens. I have made a complete materials list for you.
Plain white wrapping paper
Small tag, nature finds, felt/ fabric
Sewing machine/ needle & thread
Gift topper (See Part 1 of this blog post for the Holiday Gift Topper Tutorial)
How a gift is wrapped adds so much joy to the gift itself. For this holiday season, let’s wrap our gifts in creative ways at home. I am creating a mitten for some jewelry gifts for my daughters.
Start by folding plain white wrapping paper (I'm upcycling some) to have 6-8 layers. Lay the jewelry box at about the center of the folded wrapping paper as shown. Lightly sketch a mitten around the jewelry box using Grip 2001 Graphite Pencil - HB. Leave at least 1 inch around the box when you draw the outline of the mitten to ensure that the box fits inside when you are finished with the mitten.
Machine stitch over pencil outline. You could also stitch with needle and thread. Choose any thread color you like.
Cut around with scissors carefully. Leave about a quarter inch around the stitched outline to make sure you don’t accidentally cut into the stitches.
Make simple marks with Iridescent Gelatos colors of your choice. Repeat on the back of the mitten.
Insert the jewelry box into the mitten.
Brush letter the recipient's name with Pitt Artist Pens
Close the opening of the mitten with a strip of felt/ fabric folding it over the opening and stitching it in place. Add a loop to the mitten also with felt or fabric so you can hang it from your Christmas tree if you like.
Create a fun grouping of elements near the top. Stitch in place or use adhesive to attach to the mitten. Add your gift topper for a final unique touch.
I hope you enjoyed the gift wrapping tutorials and I wish you a safe and happy holidays!
