Design your own galaxy wrapping paper

Design your own gift wrap and tell the world who you think is a star

Galaxy cards are really popular and make a big impression. They are especially lovely when paired with a gift wrapped in homemade galaxy wrapping paper. Gift ideas are twice as nice when the wrapping paper is personalised with love – homemade is always better, after all. With the edding 1340 brush pens from the Colour Happy Box, you already have all the tools you need. You can use them to create wonderful patterns and designs in at least 20 colours. The Colour Happy Boxes offer craft lovers everything they need for colouring, drawing and hand lettering. The new Pastel Pen – Soft White also allows you to create magical pastel shades and transforms vivid Ultra Violet into soft lilac in the blink of an eye – and can make the shade even lighter if you repeatedly apply the Pastel Pen.

You will need:

  • 20 edding 1340 brush pens: available in the Colour Happy Box
  • edding 1500 Pastel Pen – Soft White
  • Light-coloured wrapping paper or brown paper (solid colour), sticky tape
Step by step instructions:
  1. Wrap your gift with your wrapping or brown paper.
  2. Use the edding 1340 brush pen in violet to draw and colour in a star on the paper.
  3. You can lighten the colour of the star using the Pastel Pen – Soft White. When you colour over the edges of the star with the Pastel Pen, you will create a lighter shade of lilac. The more times you colour over the area, the more pastel the original shade will become.
  4. You can use the same technique with the Pastel Pen to add the gift recipient’s name to the star.
  5. Then use the black edding 1340 brush pen to decorate your gift with creative constellations.

  6. Each step is explained in more detail in the following video.
