If you bought a pair of slippers for a gift for a friend, you may be trying to think of creative ways to gift-wrap them. Using a little tissue paper, ribbon and tape, you can transform a pair of slippers into a massive piece of candy. This makes a great presentation for a holiday gift -- or for a friend who likes candy.
Things You'll Need
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
- Rubber band
- Tissue paper (color of your choice)
- Two wrapped peppermint candy pieces
Place the toe of one slipper into the foot of the other. This creates a compact set that is easier to wrap. You also can place the slippers sole to sole, and wrap a rubber band around them.
Cut two 6-inch pieces of ribbon with your scissors. Insert a glue stick in your glue gun, and plug the gun into a power outlet.
Spread out two layers of tissue paper, one on top of the other.
Place the slippers diagonally at the bottom left-hand corner of the tissue paper. Roll the slippers in the tissue paper until you reach the top right corner of the tissue paper.
Pinch the ends of the tissue paper on each end of the slippers. Tie ribbons into a knot around the gathering of tissue paper at each end of the slippers. Then, tie the ribbons into a bow.
Squeeze a dot of glue on the back of two wrapped peppermint candies, and press into the center of each bow.
