Brown paper wrapping

Make your own Christmas gift wrap

At Christmas time, we like to make gifts look extra special, but if we want to be sustainable in the way we wrap them, it’s best not to use too much paper and ribbon. So here’s a top idea for you: simply get some plain brown wrapping paper, grab an edding calligraphy marker and design your own Christmas wrapping paper. No need for a fancy design: for a lovingly-wrapped gift with creative flair, all you need to do is draw a couple of stylish bows and a small name tag. And, of course, you’ll be saving on ribbon at the same time! What makes the calligraphy marker so special is the ultra-flexible nib, which produces a rich, deep colour whilst also allowing you to write beautifully in expressive calligraphy lettering. The five different colours are subtle shades, making them ideal for designing on kraft paper, which also comes in muted, nature-inspired hues.
