Christmas sock wrapping master class
Posted 22nd December 2015 by Danielle
|Okay, we know socks are exciting enough as it is, but we've come up with a couple of methods to dress them up when it comes to the wrapping this Christmas.
What you'll need
A selection of wrapping paper
Ribbons and bows (optional)
Plenty of our sock styles come with gift tags already attached for you to add your own message. Be as heartfelt or as simple as you like.
|The classic sock wrap
Step 1: Cut out a section of wrapping paper big enough to fit around the socks and place the socks lengthways in the paper.
|Step 2: Fold the outer sides in on the socks so the paper fits snugly around them and secure with a piece of tape.
|Step 3: Fold each of the open ends inwards and up to seal, and secure with tape.
|Step 4: Decorate with ribbon and bows if you like. Run a length of ribbon down the middle of the present lengthways, loop around the back, twist in the middle and bring the ribbon around the sides so you've created a cross shape. Tie into a bow, or secure with tape and add a bow.
|Use this method to wrap multiple pairs too. Either place them side by side in a larger piece of paper, or pile them up.
|The crafty sock wrap
Step 1: Roll up one pair of socks from toe to heel and cut out a long section of wrapping paper.
|Step 2: Place the rolled up socks in the paper, roll the paper around them and secure with tape.
|Step 3: Scrunch the ends on either side of the sock and secure with tape so you've got what looks like a Christmas cracker!
|Step 4: Decorate the scrunched up ends with ribbons and secure in a bow.
|Use this method for multiple pairs of socks too. Just line them up side by side in a longer section of paper.
|The mini gift bag
If you're an advocate of the gift bag (or just feeling a little lazy), grab a few mini gift bags - the perfect size to stick a pair or two of socks in!
