Default How to wrap a hamper

I'm a newbie so please bear with me!
I love the idea of making Hampers but wondered how you "finished them off" it that makes sense. How do you give it that gift touch?
Thanks :rolleyes:

hya, welcome

this thread has lots of good ideas and tips on wrapping

mostly we use cellophane, which you can buy from ebay or sometimes in your florist shop but if you are doing a few baskets, it works out cheaper buying a big roll on ebay. pull bows available on ebay too

Once you see them all, and you get started, you won't wanna stop, like the rest of us

Have fun

I'm going to use some voile curtains that I've got and never used and I bought a lovely piece from a charity shop the other day with a roses pattern on it that'll do the trick (I hope).

These look brilliant, thanks for the tips. Voile sounds like a great idea too! When I've had a go at them I'll post them onto the board for your approval.
