Channel your inner Jedi and wrap gifts for all the Star Wars enthusiasts on your list in festive themed packaging. Featuring a Chewbacca cookie (er, Wookiee) tin, Stormtrooper gift bag clip and Lightsaber gift tube, these are all designed to be reusable so the recipients can enjoy them long after the holidays. May the force be with you this holiday season!
Cut a circle of brown fur to fit on the lid of the cookie tin. Be sure to cut it slightly larger than the lid, so you have about 1/4-inch of extra fabric to glue down around the side of the rim. Hot glue it in place on the lid.
Cut a long strip of brown fur and glue it around the side of the cookie tin.
Trim off any excess fur around the top of the tin to ensure the lid can close properly.
Place the lid on the tin, and wrap a piece of brown ribbon diagonally across it. Glue the ends of the ribbon in place on the bottom of the tin.
Cut small rectangles of gray felt that are the same width as the ribbon, and glue them on top of the brown ribbon to create Chewbacca's belt.
Stormtrooper Gift Bag Clip
Things You'll Need
Print out the free template and cut out the three pieces.
Trace the helmet shape onto white cardstock and the eyes/mouth pieces onto black cardstock. Cut out all of the pieces.
Glue the eyes and mouth onto the helmet.
Glue a clothespin onto the back of the helmet, and clip it onto the top of a white white gift bag.
Lightsaber Gift Tube
Things You'll Need
Spray paint the mailing tube with blue spray paint. Allow the paint to dry fully.
Once the paint is dry, wrap the bottom third of the tube with silver duct tape.
Wrap the top and center of the "handle" with black duct tape. Make the top stripe thinner than the center stripe by cutting the tape in half.
Cut small rectangles of black duct tape, and tape them vertically at the bottom of the "handle."
Now go forth and be merry, young Jedi!
