I’m so happy to have helped my nephew wrap his Pollyanna this past Christmas. He had my sister and she had beer on her wishlist. So my nephew’s girlfriend told him about the beer cakes birthday presents which he thought was perfect. So they both came over the day before the party (Christmas eve) to get it ready!
So before that day, I collected some things that I thought would work for the wrapping. Blue and silver color scheme paper, with ribbons, some card board, I had some circle templates to help make the ‘structure’ plates in between, and foil to cover them with.
So I started by tracing the circles, and cutting them out of the cardboard making sure I put some extra tape on the fold in the middle to strengthen it. Then I covered the circle with foil to make it go with the color scheme.
We figured out how many cans would go around the circle and thought that the bottom layer should have a support can in the center.
So to make it harder for her to unwrap, cause this wrapping job also doubles as a bit of a prank to ‘get’ to her gift lol! We decided to wrap ALL the cans individually. To match the color scheme, I had blue and prismatic wrapping paper that made the present look so pretty actually!
First tier done, onto the next. …and next. Then wrap the bottom with ribbon to secure them together.
So a few years ago, I found this very wide, heavy blue and silver foil at a yard sale. It didn’t look like normal ribbon, but thought it might come in handy for what I’m sure was only about 50 cents. Well today it did come in handing, and fit our color scheme perfectly. We cut sections of the foil into strips with scissors, and then arranged them around the whole thing into curves from the top all the way around the bottom.
We put the top in one direction, with the blue facing front and silver on the inside. Then on the bottom layer, we have the blue on the inside and the silver facing the outside.
Then, put a blue ribbon around the middle beer can circle and stuck the foil strips down into the ribbon.
Topped with a silver foil bow. I had all of these supplies on hand and found at yard sales so no purchase was needed!
Hope this inspires you to put a little extra effort into wrapping your next gift!
