Decorations for presents

Time to allow: 1hr | Difficulty: 
Material
  • Sheets of patterned paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Template
Steps
  • Print and cut out the templates on the following page.
  • Trace the shapes onto the sheets of patterned paper, using the templates and cut them out.
  • Take the two ends of template n° 1 and glue them together in the middle to form two loops.
  • Glue the small template n°3 in the centre so that it fixes the other two parts n°1 et n°2 together.
Material
  • Curling ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Double sided adhesive tape
Steps
  • Cut some strips of curling ribbon, they need to be long enough to wrap around the present.
  • Line up the strips vertically on the table. You can use a little bit of the adhesive tape at one end to hold them in place.
  • Weave horizontal strips through the vertical strips.
  • Fix the ends using the double sided adhesive tape.
Material
  • Sheets of patterned paper
  • Scissors
  • Double sided adhesive tape
Steps
  • Cut 9 strips: all 1,9cm wide and in the following lengths: 3 strips 28cm long, 3 strips 25,4cm long, 2 strips 22,9cm long and 1 strip 8,9cm long. Adjust the lengths of the strips to the size of your present to obtain a star more or less voluminous.
  • Form an « eight » by attaching the ends of each strip. Use adhesive tape to fix your folds in place so that the “eights” keep their shape by themselves. Make a circle with the small strip; it will form the centre of the star.
  • Glue the « eights » together using double sided adhesive beginning with the largest. Remember to stagger the smaller « eights » with the larger sizes to get a beautiful star. Finish with the small circle in the middle.
