We’re so wrapped that she’s created this DIY project especially for us/you, and we’re sure you’re going to be wrapped too!

Here we go…

What you will need:

what you need

* gold cellophane {you can use tissue paper, glitter, Pom poms, feathers, or anything you like}
* double sided tape
* clear cellophane {you can use a zip lock bag and cut it into a flat sheet if you don’t have cellophane}
* string, ribbon or twine
* a Smile

STEP ONE Cut up metallic foil paper into little squares, or even use a hole punch if you prefer circles. You can use any paper or tissue to make your confetti.

STEP TWO Lay cellophane sheet flat. Your size of bow will depend on what size sheet of cello you use. I cut mine down to about 30cm x 20 cm, but you can make it as big or as little as you want. Use double sided tape on the entire edges of the clear cellophane, keep it all facing upwards.

STEP THREE Sprinkle confetti, stars, glitter, or even pom poms, all over the clear cello. Don’t worry if some sticks to the double sided tape.

STEP FOUR Make sure all sides of the cello has double sided tape and fold over in half. If you find its a little too ‘wide’, add more double sided tape to edges, and fold in half again.

STEP FIVE Pinch the cello in the middle where you want to tie it.

STEP SIX Tie your string tightly around the middle and trim edges if needed

STEP SEVEN Trim the edges to ‘neaten’ up. You can shake your confetti around – then using double sided tape or hot glue, pop on a present – or even wrap a little more string around and make a decoration for your tree.
