How to wrap Christmas Treat Snack cones

  • Cut a rectangle of wrapping paper twice as wide as it is high.
  • Fold it in half to make a square with the design on the outside.
  • Put a long piece of double-stick tape along the right edge.
  • Pull the top left corner down and curl it under—make a cone by pressing it against the tape.
  • Flip it over and fill the cone with holiday munchies.
  • Fold the point down over the cone and close it with a self-adhesive gift tag seal.

Pro Tips:

  • Experiment with the size of your rectangle using printer paper or gift wrap scraps: How big or small should it be to hold the right amount of treats? Once you’re happy with it, use it as a template.
  • Speed things up and cut multiple rectangles by stacking your gift wrap and cutting with a metal ruler and craft knife.
  • Keep your handwriting neat by filling in “to” and “from” on the seals before you stick them on.
  • Get an assembly line going: Fold the paper and add the tape, make the cones, then add the treats and seal it shut.

How to wrap Christmas Treat twists

  • Lay out your snacks on the diagonal on a piece of waxed paper.
  • Make sure the paper is big enough to wrap all the way around the goodies about one and a half times, with a few inches of overhang on the sides.
  • Beginning at the bottom point, roll your treats toward the top and secure with double-stick tape.

  • Tie a short piece of ribbon around each end and curl the ribbon with the edge of a scissor blade.
  • Cut a rectangle of wrapping paper long enough to wrap around the treats with a little bit of overlap, and a little shorter than the width of the roll.
  • Wrap the paper around the roll of treats and secure with double-stick tape.
  • Finish it with a gift tag seal, if you’d like!

Pro tips:

  • This technique is also perfect for packaging a stack of cookies or crackers. If you have a tough time getting everything to stay in place in the waxed paper, wrap them in plastic wrap first.
  • Give your beautifully snacks as party favors: Use a variety of complementary gift wrap and pile them on a platter or bundle them in a basket.

Red Christmas card envelopes with DIY gift wrap liners

DIY Envelope liners

Want to add a special holiday wish, thank you, or other Christmas message? Don’t forget the card! Add a liner to complement your treat wrap:

  • Open the flap, and lay the envelope open and flat on the reverse side of a piece of wrapping paper.
  • Trace the shape onto the wrapping paper and cut it out.
  • Cut a sliver (1/8″ or less) off each side and about 1/2″ off the bottom.
  • Slip the liner into the envelope, design up, and close the envelope to crease the liner.
  • Open the envelope and tape (or glue) the liner in place.
