Gift Wrap #16: Pyramid Packages

gift

(or how to wrap a round object)

It’s another long, holiday, weekend, in Sweden, which seems to mean: more days for kid’s birthday parties. This wrap came about, as I prepared packages for the weekend and had the challenge of wrapping a ball. How to camouflage it?  I realised that the solution was already right in front of me: the perfect camouflage! Pyramid Packages, of course!

Let’s get started!

For Pyramid Package Template: click here:

Use this as gauge by sizing the inner box to the width of your object

(for example: the inner triangle will be the width of a ball)

SUPPLIES:

Craft board or heavy art paper, X-ACTO Knife, Tape — preferably craft paper, Ribbon

 

HOW-TO:

 

– Print, then cut out the template.

– Score the folds.

– Fold the sides in.

– Once the sides are folded, tape them from the inside with your craft tape.  Leave about 2 inches at the top so that you can slide your fingers in for pressing the tape along the upper seam of the third side.

– Punch 3 holes on the tops top corners of the triangles.

– Seal the side seams of the package with craft tape.

This is how the packages will look after they are cut, scored and holes have been punched.

Add a bow or topper:Once seams have been sealed,  lace a ribbon through the 3 holes, tighten and tie a big, shiny, ribbon. Happy Gift Giving! I’d love to see what you do, too, with this tutorial!
