How To Use Shrink Wrap? It's easy. Let me show you great gift wrapping ideas.
Gift wrapping a gift basket with shrink wrap makes the basket look professorial and no one will ever know you made it yourself.
Shrink wrap is another kind of cellophane that can be used for wrapping homemade gift basket ideas. It works by applying heat to the cellophane and that's what makes it shrink.
Heat shrink wrap cellophane looks like ordinary transparent cellophane that comes on a roll, but when you touch it, it feels a little bit thicker than the clear gift basket cellophane. It's easy to use and makes the gifts stay in their place.
Below, I have used a fresh fruit gift basket as an example how to use shrink wrap
to wrap a gift basket. This applies to any basket you wish to use for
heat shrink wrap. It could be a spa gift basket, a baby gift basket or a
food hamper. Just change the filler and the items to suit your theme.
To cover a gift basket using heat shrink wrap, (make sure it says "shrink wrap" on the roll otherwise it will not work) follow the easy step-by-step instructions below.
The gift basket below is made from a selection of fruit: a pineapple, oranges, apples, kiwis and apricots. A good idea is to choose fruit a little under ripe because the fruit will not be eaten right away.
This gift basket would make an excellent get well basket. Don't forget to add a card or gift tag to make the gift basket complete.
Enjoy creating great homemade gift basket ideas and I look forward
to seeing you again soon.
