As the festive season approaches, the quest for unique and thoughtful Christmas gifts takes center stage. While store-bought presents offer convenience, they often lack the personal touch that makes a gift truly special. Embark on a creative adventure with handmade Christmas papercraft gifts, transforming ordinary paper into extraordinary expressions of love and appreciation.
For the December YouTube Hop with Crafting Together with all Brands, I decided to make the handmade gift all about the gift wrapping. More details below.

Handmade gifts can be handmade tags too!
The brief this month was to create handmade gifts. I really didn't want to make a box or gift bag and did struggle a little. In the end I decided that the gift wrapping would be my focus.
In my video, I showed how I made the tag for my gift and then the handmade bauble. The gift packaging became a gift too! I have used my Shady Designs Blooming Marvellous Collection with distress inks.
My final gift tag has been made using Tim Holtz Christmas Idea-ology. I wanted to show case that you could also use your double sided papers too.
Tips for Elevating Your Papercraft Creations:
Choose different paper: Thick, textured paper or specialty papers like parchment, origami paper & scrapbook papers to add dimension and visual interest to your creations.
Experiment with techniques: Explore different papercraft techniques, such as quilling, origami, paper folding or paper weaving. You can make unique designs and textures.
Personalise your creations: Add personal touches to your papercraft gifts by incorporating elements that reflect the recipient's interests, hobbies, favourite colour or personality.
Package with care: Present your Christmas gifts wrapped in handmade or hand decorated Christmas wrapping along side your handmade gift tag too.
