Wrapping Layers

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2006


Play patterns against solids, and then give wrapping striking cutouts.


  • Glue stick

  • Wrapping paper

  • Utility knife


  1. Wrap package in patterned paper.

  2. Fold blue paper around it, leaving impressions where corners will be.

  3. Using a glue stick, affix more patterned paper to the blue paper, wrong sides facing.

  4. Outline a half-star on the blue paper. Cut out with a utility knife; fold to crease. Wrap package, blue side out; center star.

  5. Follow the same steps, but reverse solid and patterned papers.
