Make individual wrapping paper: Great effects with pine needles!
You will need the following material:
- Connector paint box with opaque white
- Clic & Go water cup
- Neon-coloured wrapping paper
- Cotton buds
- A small pine branch
Take the neon-coloured wrapping paper and cut off a piece. It should be the size you need for gift-wrapping later.
Then mix opaque white with a little water in the transparent lid of the paint box. The mixture should be creamy to ensure good coverage.
Make a small, compact bundle of pine needles and dip the tips into the opaque white.
Now paint over the paper with the tips of the pine needles – more or less in the middle of the cut-off section.
Now mix two beautiful colours in the lid using opaque white, magenta and violet.
Dip a cotton bud into the paint and use it to stamp small flowers over the white stripes you painted earlier.
Using pure opaque white, place white dots in the centre of the flowers with the other end of the cotton bud.
Your gift-wrap is now ready to use! Wrap up your gift and add a matching ribbon.
Tip: You can also "produce" wrapping paper in advance. You will see that it is great fun to wrap with love.
