HOLIDAY DIY | Chalkboard Snowflake Gift Wrap

12.01.2012
To continue this month's holiday theme, I have collaborated with Midori Ribbon to create a gift wrap DIY. Check out their amazing collection of specialty wrapping paper and ribbon (here). So many beauties! Below, I show you how to make a chalkboard DIY snowflake gift, an easy and adorable way to update any present.  Have fun! Full tutorial after the break...

Photobucket Materials: 
- Midori wrapping paper (here and here)
- Midori velvet ribbon 
- paper doily (here
- chalkboard paint (here)
- sticker paper (here)
- scissors 
- paintbrush 
- colored pencil 
- lid or cup
- clear tape 
- e6000 adhesive
 - baker's twine (here)
- chalk

 Steps: 
1. Paint a square onto the sticker paper, using the chalkboard paint, a little larger that the solid white area of your paper doily.  Let fully dry.
2. Find a lid or cup that creates a circle that fits within the white solid area of the paper doily.  Then, trace around the lid/cup using a colored pencil.
3. Cut out the circle.
4. Stick the chalkboard circle onto the center of the doily.
5. Write a little message using chalk.
6. Wrap your present using your wrapping paper.
7. You can add a little fun with velvet ribbon.  Cut two lengths, 7" and 1 3/4".
8. For 7" piece, add a dab of e6000 at the end of the ribbon.
9. Glue the other side down, and hold in place for 30 seconds to lock in the glue, to create a circle.
10. Pinch the circle in the middle, wrap the smaller piece of velvet ribbon around the center, and glue in place. For the other gift, I added wrapped baker's twine several times around the height and width, then finished it with a bow.
