Thetis from Little Sooti shares her favourite tips for gorgeous gift wrapping this christmas!

You can find this article, along with lots of other gorgeous christmas ideas, in our christmas issue.


who says Christmas wrapping needs to be green, red, gold or silver?
Plain coloured papers give a great blank canvas to work from, and will fit into any colour palette!
This year, I have chosen neon colours to create a bright, fun feel.

I keep a little ‘craft box’ for wrapping with odd bits and pieces of ribbon, die cut shapes, tags, confetti – you name it, it’s in there.

By saving these throughout the year from parcels you have received or gifts you have been given, you will find you have quite a bit to play with and will most likely not need to spend as much money on bows, ribbon and any other embellishments.
try something a little different and let your creative flair come out in your wrapping!
{tip 1} bulk rolls of white or kraft paper are a staple in my gift wrapping kit, it’s an inexpensive alternative to regular decorative paper and versatile with your colour theme.

{tip 2} manilla tags are a great alternative to “Christmas” tags and you can decorate them as you please!

{tip 3} ribbons & strings are available is every colour of the rainbow and can be used to great effect on white or kraft paper to fit in with your  chosen theme.

{tip 4} strips of leftover or recycled decorative paper look fantastic wrapped around the gift as a wide ribbon.

{tip 5} make your own confetti by stacking assorted coloured tissue paper together & hole punching it
{tip 6} cut your own shapes out such as hearts, stars, and Christmas trees and sprinkle onto gifts for a fun look!

  1. Gorgeous, I plan to use brown paper with red ribbon and white doilies which I have stamped with Joyeux Noel.
