Holly Surprise Ball Toppers

Step 1:

Wrap your package with brown kraft paper.

Step 2:

Cut out three large holly leaves in a shade of green. (I used my shop’s Green Color Block wrapping paper -- available here!). Fold the leaves in half lengthwise to create a 3-D effect.

Step 3:

Fill three ball-shaped packages with small gifts.

Step 4:

Wrap the balls with red crepe streamers until they are completely covered. Secure in place with a small piece of clear tape.

Step 5:

Place your holly leaves and berries on top of your kraft package and secure with glue or tape.

Tree-Shaped Treasure


Step 1:

Cut three large, identical triangles out of cardboard.

Step 2:

Tape the triangles together so that they form a pyramid shape.

Step 3:

Place your tree upright on top of a piece of cardboard. Trace, cut, and set aside the piece of cardboard to use as the bottom of the tree.

Step 4:

Fill the tree with your desired gift.

Step 5:

Tape your precut tree bottom to the sides of your tree to secure your gift inside.

Step 6:

Wrap your tree in a shade of green wrapping paper.

Step 7:

Wrap a piece of ribbon around the tree and add some little embellishments such as small ornaments, little drawings, or a bow.
