Wrap up gifts in pretty packaging

Make gifts extra special with unique Christmas wrapping paper

It can sometimes be hard to find creative gift packaging in the shops. But don’t worry, because we’ve got a selection of lovely DIY gift wrapping ideas for you. All you need to do is reach for a pen and get designing! You’ll need the right pen and some plain paper, of course. Use the edding 1200 metallic colour pens, and your Christmas wrapping ideas will take shape in no time at all. The great thing about these popular fibre pens is that they’re also available in six brilliant metallic colours. The nib is exceptionally soft and produces a bold, opaque colour result. These metallic fibre pens are great on light-coloured paper, but they stand out even better on a dark background. Simply remove the cap, get started and go wherever your imagination takes you: Christmas greetings in calligraphy style, stars, angels, snowflakes and decorative bows – they’re all straightforward and easy to apply. For a rather sophisticated look, make the gift tags out of dark paper and decorate in gold or silver, or add a gold design to white paper.
