How to wrap an odd shaped gift

Not all gifts are conveniently rectangular. Sometimes the presents you buy your friends and family come in an odd shape, making them harder to wrap. Fortunately this is a problem people have been dealing with for a long time and have come up with a variety of good solutions. We picked four of the best to help you wrap your oddly shaped gift this holiday.


Create a Gift Sack Out of Wrapping Paper and Ribbon

Keltie Colleen from Mahalo.com suggests a simple yet attractive wrapping method. You just place the gift on a large sheet of wrapping paper, pull the edges around it up to the top like you’re creating a sack, and then tie it up with some decorative ribbon.

Form-Fit the Wrapping Paper

YouTube user ThePort989 opts for standard wrapping methods, but cuts the wrapping paper to form-fit the present as she goes along. This will result in a more standard-looking wrapped gift but is a bit more effort than the previous method.

Use the Lotus Wrapping Method

Although this video demonstrates the lotus wrapping method on a book, which has a very simple and regular shape, the same method can be used on oddly shaped presents. The wrapping method is very simply, in which you tie two of the wrapping material’s corners together, reversing the ends to make it look like a lotus petals. Then you just repeat the same thing with the other two corners and it looks like a lotus flower on top. This works especially well if your wrapping material is softer and is different on each side.

Fold Unusual Angles to Fit the Irregular Gift’s Form

Nilda Garcia from Kate’s Paperie demonstrates how to wrap a tennis racket, which has an inconsistent shape. She folds tissue paper at odd angles to better fit the form. She also opts to use two sheets to wrap the bottom and then another two sheets to wrap the top so that the packaging she creates is sufficiently reinforced.

Four Ways to Wrap an Oddly Shaped Gift

1. wrap tissue paper around it and shove it into a decorative bag

2. go to the mall wrapping station and pretend you bought it there

3. put a bow and tag on it and consider it wrapped enough

4. repurpose an Ikea bookcase as a box, held together with binder clips and decorated with Sugru

Start Your Own Beehive Give Unique Honey Gifts



What could be more valuable than starting your own beehive, helping to preserve the bee, vital to our ecosystem survival? And while your at it, you can give friends and family wonderful honey gifts! Featured below is an article on starting your own beekeeping business. For now, check out some gorgeous Honey Gifts for inspiration, along with books on beekeeping for honey!




Why Choose Beekeeping As a Hobby or Profession

Why Choose Beekeeping As a Hobby or Profession

By Laurel Abell

The hobby of beekeeping, also called apiculture, got started on a wide scale in the United States during World War II when sugar was tightly rationed. For many during this time, what started out as a hobby burgeoned into a cottage industry. This was especially true for women who were looking for a way to support their children while their husbands were away, or most unfortunately, became widowed by the war. It was a very practical pursuit too because the whole family could pitch in, even the smaller children.

Today, beekeeping has become one of the fastest growing hobbies in the United States. Further some professional beekeepers start out with a small enterprise but then grow into a full-time business. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, there are approximately 212,000 beekeepers in the United States, with about 200,000 of these beekeepers doing it as a hobby and the remaining 12,000 doing it as a sideline business or as a full time business.

Europe has the United States beat in the beekeeping department! According to a research paper published in 2013 in the “PLUS ONE” journal, there are approximately 620,000 beekeepers in Europe. There are many compelling reasons why beekeeping has become so popular. We discuss a few of the best ones below.

It’s Profitable

Not only can you sell the honey, you can also sell the wax and the bees as they multiple — and bees are very good at multiplying! If you join a bee association in your area, there are always newbies looking for a hive to get started so it’s not difficult to find a buyer.

Liquid Gold Has High Barter Potential

If you have bottles of fresh, raw, unfiltered local honey on hand, you can use this liquid gold to barter for just about anything else you want or need! Are you looking for fresh eggs, fresh caught wild fish, firewood chopped and delivered, vine ripe tomatoes, someone to take care of your dog while you’re away, or piano lessons for your child? You can probably get any of these things, and so much more, in exchange for your honey!

Get Back To Nature In a Crowded City

Even if you live in a congested metropolitan area, you can get intimate with the bees! Urban beekeeping is gaining popularity and there are bee clubs is most major cities now. People raise bees on apartment building rooftops and business rooftops. They raise them in community gardens or in tiny backyards on city plots. If you don’t have a yard, but you know someone who does, you can offer to share honey with them if they allow you to set up your bee hives in their yard.

Beekeeping Is an Amazing Experience For Kids

What better way to truly connect kids to nature, and show them how to produce their own food, than teaching them the art of apiculture. Even if you’ve never raised bees yourself, you can always elicit some help from your friends at a beekeeping club. In this way, you’ll be teaching how to go about learning something new. You’ll also be helping them develop positive social skills and they interact with other club members. It will also give them a sense of accomplishment and pride. Best of all, you’ll be teaching your child a practical and fun hobby they can carry with them throughout life and even pass on to your grandchildren!

What a Popular Gift Giver You Will Be!

Just wait until next Christmas, Hanukkah, or birthday time… everyone else will be handing out those last minute, center isle, store bought gifts everyone always gives a polite “thank you” for and then re-gifts to their neighbor… but YOU… you can be the grand gifter with jar of homemade local honey! It will be a gift that everyone will truly appreciate and always remember.

How to make Christmas magical for our children

How to make Christmas magical for our children

Vintage Christmas Retro Xmas Personalized Throw Pillow Christmas is a time of year when lying to our children is not only accepted it is positively encouraged. Believing in Father Christmas is compulsory and woe betide the school mom whose child delivers the news that he’s not real to the rest of the class.Shop Custom Wrapping Paper & More!
 .
It’s a delicate path we parents tread at this time of year. We have to protect our kids from every source that may reveal us for the bare-faced liars that we are.
 .
Yet we continue with the facade ..why? Because for the duration of the Christmas season, magical memories can be made that will last a lifetime, long after we learn that Santa isn’t real.
 .
These memories will be recalled with fondness, a smile, a warm glow and of course can be passed down through the generations as ‘traditions’ the family shares at Christmas time.
 .
I have a fairly simple Christmas tradition that I have adopted from my own childhood and that is the importance of the tree decorations. We don’t have color coordinated baubles in the latest seasons colors, instead we have ornaments that are unique and can used year upon year. These are added to with ornaments that have some meaning or significance.
 .
This year I ordered a ceramic ornament featuring both my children with a personalized greeting. The previous year we made ornaments from Polymer clay. One year I made some pegdoll ornaments! They are all resurrected for the coming Christmas. Each time looking a little more worn and in doing so becoming a tad more treasured.
 .
  • What magical memories of Christmas past do you recall?
  • Are you creating new magical Christmas memories for your own children?

Share your magical memories with us so that we too may feel their festive glow 🙂

My ideas for creating magical Christmas memories

.
On the Eve
 .
santas sleigh bells
When your young children are in bed and you know they are still awake waiting to catch a glimpse of Santa; go out into the garden and tinkle some bells. Your children will hopefully be in awe believing these to be Santa’s Sleigh Bells ringing as he sails through the sky.
 .
.
.
,A new spin on an old idea
 
santa suit cosplayThe old idea: Leave a plate of refreshments out for Santa and his sleigh. Be sure to eat some of these yourself before the morning and leave some left-overs for the kids to find.
 .
The new spin is this:
After the children have gone to bed and are fast asleep, dress up as Santa and take a ‘selfie’ of yourself eating the cookies with your own home decor in the background.
 .
Show this to your child as ‘proof’ Santa was there! He had the nerve to take a selfie using YOUR camera (iPhone).
 .
You could also leave a thank you note from Santa for the cookies.
.
Magic door Key
.
.
santas magic door key gift ideas
 .
Some small children get very anxious if the house doesn’t have a chimney for Santa to squeeze down. The idea of a magic door key that fits every door is the solution!
.
You could make this more magical by making a large ‘key’ out of cardboard and tinfoil. You can then tell your child only Santa himself can use this key to open your door.
You can even demonstrate that it doesn’t work for you. I guarantee it won’t 🙂 Then you can safely leave it outside on the porch, under the door mat etc. for Santa to use. In the morning the key will reappear inside the house!! Right where Santa left it after entering with it.
Fairy Dust
Children love fairy dust so have some handy to ensure happiness reigns in your household on Christmas day. Use it to sprinkle on the children lightly to restore their mood and energy. See if it works!! The power of belief, placebo and Christmas Spirit is very powerful. It just may work.

VINTAGE CHRISTMAS VILLAGE Comment By Zazzle Designer known as ‘FlipFlopGranny’

“On Christmas mornings past our 3 kids knew they had to wait for dad to get up and walk to the living room to light a fire and check to see if Santa had come. This always drug out endlessly! Now, in Christmas present I have our grown up kids and their young’ns drive to our house in the morning in their pajamas for more gift exchanges and brunch.

The menu stays the same: my mother’s Creamed Eggs on Toast; scrambled eggs; Mimosas; coffee; juice and milk. It’s a crazy, loud exciting morning and this grandma looks forward to it every year, but I’m always ready to claim my sanity once again when they leave”.

How to select the right corporate gifts for your business

What do your corporate gifts say about you?

It is that time of year when we need to start thinking about corporate gifts. If you’re super organized however you’ll have been thinking about this since July. The corporate gifts you give to your clients, suppliers and others that you network with can say a lot about your business. The tone and quality of the gift reflects the tone and quality of your organization.

It is better not to give a corporate gift at all than to risk getting it wrong and sending out a message that isn’t representative of what you are truly about. A corporate gift need not be expensive but it does need to be a quality item, well made and packaged smartly.

Let’s consider the options for corporate gifts

  • Customized pen, calendar, magnet, diary or other office item that bears your business details
  • Monogrammed executive accessories such as wine stoppers, cufflinks, card holders, flasks, monogrammed glass ware
  • Gift baskets, flowers, wine, chocolates

Items that bear your company name and logo are a suitable reminder of who you are but if your branding is too visible the gifts are unlikely to be used or displayed in the home or office. As such any branding you include on your corporate gift should be discreet. That is unless the item is consumable, in which case be as bold as you dare! If the corporate gift has a purpose it is more likely to be kept and used than something purely decorative.

I have a number of corporate gift ideas here for you to browse through, those from Zazzle and Beaucoup can be customized and as such can show your company details. You can choose your self how prominently placed your details are. Also featured are a range of classy executive corporate gifts that have wide appeal. Choose wisely, order early and ensure to retain any thank you cards you receive so you know who to target again the following year. The response will also guide you regarding future corporate gift choices.

How to Customize Zazzle T-Shirts – Step by Step Tutorial

Customized T-Shirts unique to you

There are many reasons why you may want a customized t-shirt. It may be for a funny gift, for a fun night out, for sports team games, corporate events and more. Whatever the reason you need to know how to customize the t-shirt/s online. Zazzle is the Print On Demand company I favor. It is after all the world’s number 1 leader in customizables.

Scooby-Doo and Shaggy Zoinks! Tshirts For this tutorial I am using one of Zazzle’s Brand Partner T-Shirts but this ‘how to customize t-shirts’ tutorial can be applied to any T-Shirt on Zazzle and most of the products, the basic customization tools remain the same for all items.

If you need any help customizing your t-shirt – drop me a line I am happy to help.

Step by Step tutorial for customizing your Zazzle T-Shirt.

Tip: If you have two devices, it may be a good idea to have this tutorial open on one of them so you can refer to it while you customize your t-shirt on the other device.

  1. Select the t-shirt template you wish to customize, whether it be a blank one or one with an existing design.
  2. When you have chosen the t-shirt item you wish to customize select the ‘Customize it!’ tab. You can locate this as shown in the image below next to the blue Add to Cart’ tab.

how to customize zazzle tshirts tutorial

 

3. Selecting this tab will reveal a set of customization tools which include ‘Art View’ (beneath the image of the t-shirt) and ‘Add Image’ ‘Add Text’ (shown to the right below the ‘customize it’ text. Switch to ‘Art View’. The t-shirt image will then disappear and you will see the space available for your image and text as shown below.

4. Add an image – To add an image to your design click on the ‘Add image’ tab. Selecting that ‘field’ will allow yo to resize and reposition it.

5. Resize the image to create room for your text. Do you see the border to the image with the small boxes and dotted lines? Point your mouse to the little box to the far right. When you do this a symbol will appear to indicate that you can resize and reposition your image by holding your mouse over it. Draw the box in to resize and move it around to where you’d like it to be in the space.

6.Select Add Text – when you select this tab a text box will appear.

7. Type in the text you want on the T-Shirt. and then select ‘Done’. I have typed in ‘add name here’. You would of course type in the name or the one-liner you want to appear.

8. Click ‘Save’ before proceeding further.

9. Changing the font size, color and type – Use your mouse to ‘Highlight’ and thus select the ‘change text’ tab.

A range of customization tools will appear. The ‘F’ in the circle is the tab you select to change the font. A table of fonts will appear. Scroll down and when you find a font you like ‘highlight’ to select it and then select ‘done’ to save it to your design. The number that appears in the tab below the ‘add text tab’ indicates the font size. Select this to change the size of the font. To the right of the ‘edit and ‘arrange’ tabs you will see some ‘position arrows’ and a white blank box. The box when selected will give you a color chart to select a color for your font.

TIP: If you do all this while in the ‘art view’ (see step 3) you will be sure to get everything within the print area.

If you have any difficulty at all with ANY of this – do drop me a line and I will do what I can to assist.

10.When you are happy that your text and image are properly aligned (spelling is correct) you can proceed with the other areas of customization, which include selecting a ‘size’ color and style of t-shirt.

You will see color options for the t-shirt and style options (men, women, children, different type of clothing) below the text and image editing fields. Select the style of t-shirt you want first as that will affect the color options that appear. Once done you can then select the color. Check that your text is visible against the color of t-shirt you choose.

11. You’re almost done! When you are happy with your choices, you must select a ‘size’.

12. Once all the above steps are complete and you are happy to move forward to checkout – select ‘Add to Cart’.

As you do this a pop up box will appear which shows you once more the image you have edited to help you check one final time everything is spaced and aligned correctly within the print area. Select ‘Continue’ if happy to do so.

You’re finished – Well done 🙂

I guarantee this will be much easier the next time around and I also guarantee there will be a next time because once you give someone a personalized gift and you see how delighted they are with it, you will want to buy more customized gifts.

TIP: One final thing!!

Have a seperate desktop window open as you order so you can check Zazzle’s current special offers and discounts (they always have some) and ‘copy’ the coupon code that applies to your purchase and ‘paste’ it to the box that will appear when you go through the checkout for special offers and coupon codes.

4. Resize the image to create room for your text. Do you see the border to the image with the small boxes and dotted lines? Point your mouse to the little box to the far right. When you do this a symbol will appear to indicate that you can resize and reposition your image by holding your mouse over it. Draw the box in to resize and move it around to where you’d like it to be in the space.

5.Select Add Text – when you select this tab a text box will appear.

7. Click ‘Save’ before proceeding further.

8. Changing the font size, color and type – Use your mouse to ‘Highlight’ and thus select the ‘change text’ tab.

A range of customization tools will appear. The ‘F’ in the circle is the tab you select to change the font. A table of fonts will appear. Scroll down and when you find a font you like ‘highlight’ to select it and then select ‘done’ to save it to your design. The number that appears in the tab below the ‘add text tab’ indicates the font size. Select this to change the size of the font. To the right of the ‘edit and ‘arrange’ tabs you will see some ‘position arrows’ and a white blank box. The box when selected will give you a color chart to select a color for your font.

TIP: If you do all this while in the ‘art view’ (see step 3) you will be sure to get everything within the print area.

9. Add an image – if at any point you wish to add an image to your design you can do so using the ‘Add image’ tab. Selecting that ‘field’ will allow yo to resize and reposition it.

10.When you are happy that your text and image are properly aligned (spelling is correct) you can proceed with the other areas of customization, which include selecting a ‘size’ color and style of t-shirt.

You will see color options for the t-shirt and style options (men, women, children, different type of clothing) below the text and image editing fields. Select the style of t-shirt you want first as that will affect the color options that appear. Once done you can then select the color. Check that your text is visible against the color of t-shirt you choose.

You’re finished with the customizing of your t-shirt!! Well done 🙂

I guarantee this will be much easier the next time around and I also guarantee there will be a next time because once you give someone a personalized gift and you see how delighted they are with it, you will want to buy more customized gifts.

TIP: One final thing!!

Have a seperate desktop window open as you order so you can check Zazzle’s current special offers and discounts (they always have some) and ‘copy’ the coupon code that applies to your purchase and ‘paste’ it to the box that will appear when you go through the checkout for special offers and coupon codes.
