We’ve all been there on Christmas morning, trying desperately to guess what could be hiding in that Christmas wrapping paper, picking your present up and giving it a little shake in the hope of a tell-tale sound or feel. If you’re gifting someone a CEWE PHOTOBOOK this Christmas, what’s beneath the paper may not remain a secret for long, but – if you’re willing to get a bit creative with your wrapping – you can easily ramp up the anticipation and give the recipient a subtle taste of what their gift may be.

After dedicating the time to create your CEWE PHOTOBOOK with highlights, we think it deserves to take centre stage amongst all the other presents as testament to all the love and effort that went into it. With our handy DIY tips and some pretty gold or silver wrapping paper, your CEWE PHOTOBOOK is bound to steal the show under the Christmas tree! 


You will need:
– Wrapping paper with a gold or silver design
– Card or thick paper
– Glue (PVA or a glue stick work best)
– Gold or silver glitter and/or sequins 
– Washi tape 
– Mini prints, retro prints or CEWE greetings cards
– A gold or silver pen

Wrapping your CEWE PHOTOBOOK with gold or silver highlights

Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Take all of your materials and lay them out ready to work with.

Tip:  We love the idea of using a combination of several different wrapping papers that co-ordinate!

Step 2: Cut a gift tag shape out of the card and write it to your recipient with your Christmas message. On the other side, apply some glue and add your gold/silver glitter or sequins to your preferred design.

Step 3: Wrap your CEWE PHOTOBOOK and add your homemade gift label. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your wrapping – try cutting the paper into strips or shapes.

Step 4: Order your CEWE mini prints, retro prints or greeting cards online or using the CEWE Creator Software. You can use photos from within the CEWE PHOTOBOOK or other photos following the same theme. Get creative and add them to the wrapped present – try arranging them in different ways and then stick them down with glue or washi tape.
