Holiday Gift Wrap: Recommended tools

Hello again! This is Emily. Lia and I are working on a creative gift wrapping series for you in time for the holidays! I recently taught a creative gift wrap workshop (I blogged about it here) and I am excited to share with you some of the things I learned as a result. Today’s post is a compilation of recommended tools for creative gift wrap (the tools we like to keep handy). Tomorrow I will share with you a list of crafty materials we like to use and suggest alternatives to store bought wrapping paper, gift tags and bows. ~ Emily

Recommended tools for creative gift wrap:
• scissors
• craft knife
• metal ruler
• cutting mat
• hole punchers (1/4″ round and 1/8″ round are my favorites)
• scoring tool/folder for crisp folds
• scotch tape & adhesive dot rollers
• hot glue gun & glue sticks
