What you will need:
Roll out the cellophane on to the table and place the basket in the middle. Make sure to leave enough cellophane to cover the front and back of the basket and to leave plenty of room at the top for some pretty frills. We measured 60 cm from the top of the basket to the top of the cellophane.
Once you have the perfect measurements for your basket cut your cellophane to size.
Add in your filler and arrange your presents inside the basket.
Take the front and back sections of the cellophane and lift them up so they meet at the top, pressing them tight against the basket.
Now, starting at either end of the cellophane start to pinch it towards the center. Keep a firm grip and pleat until all the cellophane has been folded towards the middle. Then secure this using string and pinch the pleats up.
Neatly fold the sides of the cellophane to the back of the basket and secure in place with sellotape.
Take your pull bow, and pull the inner ribbons to create the finished bow. Then tie this on to your hamper, and there you have it your completed hamper in five easy steps!
The beauty of a Christmas hamper is that you can personalise it however you like. So, make up your own Christmas gift hampers and spread smiles on your families and friends’ faces!
