How to gift wrap a mug: a step-by-step guide
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
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.
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
Neatly tie a bow around the top of your wrapped mug.
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!
