Printables 01: It's a Wrap!


For something that will eventually ripped and tossed in about two seconds, gift wrapping sure takes a lot of work. Between choosing the paper, selecting the gift tag, and coordinating the packages, the mind can only handle so much. We're here to help. The Shadow Magnets gift wrap is designed to be wrapping paper and gift tag rolled into one using supplies that you should already have around the house.

What you will need:

  • White printer paper (or whatever fancy text weight paper you have on hand)
  • scissors or hobby knife
  • ruler
  • double-stick tape, clear tape or glue stick (your choice)
  • pen, pencil or crayon for writing

STEP 1: Save the desired Shadow Magnets gift wrap file. Print your selected design at actual size; do not scale the image.  The edges will be cut off, but that's okay.

STEP 2: Cut out the wrap along the solid lines. Fold in along the dotted lines. Fill in the "To" and "From" fields.


STEP 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2  till you have all the wraps you need.

STEP 4: Flip over the wrap so tha the artwork faces down. Wrap tabs around package. Tape or glue in place.


STEP 5: Admire your own handiwork.

Shadow Magnets make great stocking stuffers or last minute presents. A couple makes an excellent big gift. Simply bundle a stack, and wrap with string, or yarn, or whatever you have on hand.
