How To Wrap A Mug

Step 1: Cut your ribbon to the size you want

The first step in wrapping your coffee mug is to cut your ribbon to the desired length. Consider using two different colours of ribbon to add some extra visual interest. Measure out how much you need based on how large or small you want to go. Make sure you have enough to wrap around the mug and tie a bow at the top.

Step 2: Lay out the wrapping paper

Start by placing a sheet of tissue paper on top of a sheet of cellophane. You can use any colour or pattern that you like, but a solid colour works well for most occasions. Place the coffee mug in the centre of the paper.

Step 3: Begin slowly wrapping

Next, gently lift the corners of the tissue paper and fold them up and over the mug. Then, carefully wrap the cellophane around the mug and secure it with tape or a sticker. Repeat this process until the entire mug is covered.

Step 4: Get creative with tying the ribbon

Once the mug is wrapped, it's time to add some decorative touches. Take your ribbon and tie it around the top of the mug, making a bow. You can also experiment with different types of knots and ribbon styles to add some extra flair.

Step 5: Write out your mug gift tag to a loved one

Finally, write out a gift tag to attach to the ribbon. You can use a pre-made tag or make your own out of cardstock or scrapbook paper. Write a message to your loved one explaining why you chose that particular mug or simply wish them a happy occasion. Then, attach the tag to the ribbon with tape or a string.

Wrapping a coffee mug as a gift doesn't have to be a difficult task. With just a few simple steps and some creativity, you can create a thoughtful and personalised gift that your loved one is sure to appreciate. Remember to have fun with it and don't be afraid to experiment with different wrapping styles and colours. Happy gifting!
