wrap it up | in stitches

Hand stitched wrapping paper is an easy way to put a sweetly personal touch on your holiday gifts. Use festive words, names, or designs to give each present a special and unique presentation.

To recreate the design, first measure out the box top in the correct place on the wrapping paper. Freehand or stencil a sketch of the word on the inside of the paper. Since you are working on the opposite paper side, a mirror image of the word (basically writing it in backwards) is what you will need to trace. Thread your needle with embroidery thread and hand-stitch your way around the word.

Have you begun your wrapping or shopping yet for the holidays? I am having a blast compiling the DIY Christmas gifts to share with you in December and will be spending the weekend working on a couple of them myself. Happy Friday!

blessings.

  1. Well Victoria – the only Christmas shopping I have done involves buying myself a snow globe so I guess I have a long way to go! Love this idea – happy, happy weekend to you, Stephie x
