The Beginners Guide to Gift-Wrapping

Okay guys let’s be honest – There are just a few days left and if you still don’t know how to wrap your gifts it’s definitely time to know by now.

Why we should spend so much hours on gift-wrapping? – Something I question myself every time. I’m not a complete beginner, but I’m a perfectionist when it comes to extravagant solutions. There are so much DIYs and guides on how to do that and I try out different ways every year. Although I enjoy making extraordinary creations, I think it’s a bit a waste of time. It can be daunting to see how quick gifts get unwrapped in just a few seconds. But todays post is not about math and calculations. Self-made wrapped gifts are still one of the few beautiful things in life that make us smile. I decided to make a guide with some few examples. They are easy to do and for absolute beginners!

Gift-Wrapping – Snickerdoodle Roll

Christmas bakery is so important to me that I couldn’t imagine any Christmas without it. I love the smell and taste of christmas cookies so much that I spent most of the last weekends before Christmas Eve in my kitchen. One of my favourite Christmas recipes are “Snickerdoodles” – super easy and super yummy!
I noticed that I have done a quite big amount I decided to give them away as little gifts to family and friends. On the lookout for the right packaging and gift-wrapping I found this amazing DIY tutorial. DIYs with recycled materials are best because in fact they are useless. Be aware of enough empty kitchen rolls – You’ll need them!
