Would you like a quick and inexpensive way to bump your gifted baked goods up a notch? You are in luck! Today we’ll show you how to wrap bread as a gift for the upcoming holiday season!
The best part about these mini bread loaf wraps is you can make three wraps from just one piece of 12×12″ cardstock.
This is perfect for neighbor gifts, office co-workers or holiday hostess gifts. Just a little bit of effort for a big impact.
How to wrap bread as a gift and the supplies you’ll need:
- Baked Mini-Loaf (truth be told, I purchased mine! No one needs to know. It measures approximately 7″x 3.5″x 2″)
- Clear Treat Bags
- Embossing Folder: Four Trees
- DCWV Double Sided Textured Cardstock Stack (<–white core cardstock)
- Assorted Grit Sandpaper
- Darice Red Bling Stickers
- Baker’s Twine
- Assorted Cardstock Tags with String
- Double Sided Adhesive
Begin by cutting a piece of white core green cardstock into 4″ x 12″ strips. A little note about white core cardstock: this allows you to be able to sand your embossed images, so you can see them clearly. If you do not have access to white core cardstock, you will not have the white looking “outline” of your embossed images. It will still look cool with regular cardstock though!
Take your cut strip of cardstock and sandwich it into your embossing folder. DO NOT cut the strip down. There will be substantial overhang on the right side of the folder, that is intentional.
Run your strip and folder through your embossing machine following the manufacturer instructions.
Remove the strip. Using sandpaper, gently sand the embossed image until the white core comes through.
Lay your embossed strip on a cutting mat. Using a craft knife, trim the tops of the trees. Using a ruler as a guide, slightly trim the 4″ strip on both sides of the tree image.
You should be left with a solid 12″ band that looks like this:
Flip the band over, and attach some strong adhesive to the tree side of the band. (You could also use hot glue here)
With the adhesive side on the bottom, wrap the band around your mini loaf, and secure the opposite end of the band.
Hold the adhesive until it is set.
Flip your loaf over, and add a string and gift tag to the cellophane bag.
Add a little bling to the trees if you’d like and that is how to wrap bread as a gift for the holidays!
Get ready to slice up some compliments with these festive little loafs!
