Here are some great ways to create picture perfect presents to impress all your friends and family on Christmas day.

Perfect Pom-Poms

What you need

  •  Coloured ribbon
  • Cardboard
  • Scissors

Step 1 - Draw two large circles with two smaller circles inside each one.
 Step 2 - Cut out the two discs and put them together.
 Step 3 - Wind your ribbon around the discs from the centre to the outer edge.
 Step 4 - Keep going round and round until you’ve covered the whole surface. (If you run out of ribbon, simply grab some more, tie the ends together, and continue where you left o .)
Step 5 - Now you will need to cut the ribbon in between the cardboard at the outer edge of the disc. Only snip a bit at a time, holding it together with your other hand, until you have cut all the way around. Now, cut o a piece of ribbon about 30cm long. Use that to tie on the pom pom by pulling the string between the two cardboard discs and then tightening it around the centre. Tie your pom pom up tightly.
Step 6 - Now you can slide the two discs o and u up your pom pom so it’s nice and round!
Step 7 - Tie a ribbon around your present.
Step 8 - Decorate the present with your pom pom and one of our lovely gift tags.
