You’ve put their photos on it. The mug you’ve made is all but ready to give. Have you thought about filling it with chocolates as well? (Obviously, you get to eat the overspill.) But wait, how on earth do you gift wrap a mug? Let’s have a look…

To wrap one mug you’ll need

  • 1 x large sheet of cellophane (from any good craft shop)
  • 2 x large sheets of coloured tissue paper
  • 1 x gift tag (or just make a hole in a piece of card)
  • 1-2 long lengths of colourful ribbon
  • Scissors

How to gift wrap your mug

Step 1: cut your ribbon

Guestimate the amount you’ll need- depends on whether you want to go big or small. Use two different colours like we did, if you want.hands using a pair of large scissors cutting green ribbon wrapping a gift

Step 2: lay out the wrapping

Cellophane first with the tissue paper on top. Then place your mug in the middle.

Step 3: get wrapping

Bring the corners of the tissue paper up, over the mug. Repeat with the cellophane.

Step 4: tie your ribbon

Step 5: write your gift tag

Say whatever you like, from a simple Happy Birthday or ‘Can’t wait to see you’, to explaining why you picked that photo. Tie the tag onto your ribbon and you’re done. Mug gift wrapping – made easy!
