How to wrap a present, without really wrapping a present? Hmm....

My sister's birthday is coming up, but her presents (a painting and a suitcase) are way too large to send (she goes to university in England and I live in Norway). Then I thought I at least could send her a picture of her wonderful presents. And then I might as well make a little fun out of it. Here is the result!

So if you have some friend or relative living far away, at least you can show them what you've bought! (and in a pretty cool way too...)

Instructions

  1. How to make a greetings card. Birthday Card (With The Present!) - Step 1 1

    First, here are the tings you'll need; Just click on the pretty picture!

    I don't know if the bow (the purple shiny thing ;D) has some special name in English, but in Norwegian they are just called birtday bows (directly translated). If you don't have one i guess you could substitute it with something else, if you're creative.

  2. How to make a greetings card. Birthday Card (With The Present!) - Step 2 2

    Now let's make a gift:

    Cut out a scrap of paper in one colour and fold it once, creating a card.

  3. How to make a greetings card. Birthday Card (With The Present!) - Step 3 3

    Cut out a few strips of paper in a different colour and glue them on the front side of the card.

    You could just make a simple cross in just one colour, or some fancy braiding with several colours like i did :)




  4. 4

    Open the card and glue on the pictures of the present(s) inside.

    You can add some decorations too if you want.

  5. How to make a greetings card. Birthday Card (With The Present!) - Step 5 5

    Finally, glue on the birthday bow at the top, on the front of the card.

    Now you have a present without actually having to wrap anything! :)
