Last year I wrapped all of Sophie's gifts from Santa like a Santa Suit so that they would stand out to her on Christmas morning (and so she wouldn't recognize the paper). She loved it and so our Santa Suit gift wrap tradition was born.
For the record, I do not recommend glitter wrapping paper. I even sprayed it with clear coat and glitter was still everywhere.
Red wrapping paper
1 1/2- 2 in. black ribbon
Poster board or gift box (for buckle)
Gold or silver paint (Krylon Metallic Brillant Gold)
Wrap presents in red paper.
Wrap black ribbon around the center, taping it in the back.
Using an Exacto knife, cut out the buckle. I went for a more whimsical, cartoonish look, so I didn't use exact measurements. If you want a perfect square, a ring box makes a great guide. I made the square about 1/2" wider on each side than the ribbon.
Paint the buckle. When buckle is dry, secure buckle to ribbon with rubber cement, tacky glue or tape.
And there you have it, Santa Suit gift wrap!
