Wrapping that Gift for Dad

I hope you have already wrapped the gift for Dad or if not lets give you a run down of some of the basic supplies you will need to do so.
The traditional basket which as someone rightfully said 'mom can use it afterwards ( car wash bucket or a hat or gift mug, pre wrapped box, tool box or storage container- ideas are limitless)
  • Scissors
  •  Ribbon -use colours silver, black, red, white, brown, blue or gold
  • Cellophane basket bag depending on size of gift, or cellophane roll or gift paper or pre wrapped box, cellophane printed bags (use the ones with a sporty theme or maybe with tool box items)
  • Scotch tape (to tape up the extra ends and give it a neat look)
  • Twist ties, if necessary- for keeping the neck of the cellophane together to make it easier to tie on the ribbons
  • Pull Bows for added effect
  • Gift tag
  • Glue dots - to secure items in basket so they do not move around or to prevent glass items from knocking together
  • Tissue- silver, white, black, brown,blue, red or gold
  • Dont forget some shred - You can use newspaper to first line the container and then top with foiled, or craft shred.
Have fun wrapping and for the fathers "Happy Father's Day!"
