We recommend that you practise the pattern or wording on a sheet of paper beforehand to see what looks best. The edding 1200 metallic colour pen lets you get started straight away because you don’t need to shake it before use. Use silver for drawing Christmassy motifs on the wrapping paper such as baubles, sprigs of pine, stars and candy canes.
In this example, the Christmas wishes are hiding in the Christmas tree itself. To guide you, sketch the shape of the Christmas tree in pencil first. Now fill in the tree with the words “I wish you a merry and a wonderful Christmas”, starting at the tip and broadening out until you reach the bottom.
We decorated this packaging with golden garlands on white gift wrap. Draw the garlands first, before adding decorative stars. To give the phrase “believe in the magic” a calligraphy style, go over selected letters multiple times to make the strokes more pronounced. The best way to draw the fine lines is to use the tip of the pen.
