Follow our step-by-step guide to wrap your Bottled Baking Co. mix… 

Step 1: Roll out your chosen gift wrap & cut vertically

Based on the size of our bottles, we’d recommend you roll out your wrapping paper so you’ve got around 40cm (width) to play with.

Cut the paper vertically and don’t worry about those rough edges from cutting, we’ve got a little hack for that.

Step 2: Fold the edges and fold the paper inwards

Where you’ve cut the paper with scissors, make a small fold inwards - it’ll ensure you’ve got a nice clean edge to work with. 

Once you’ve folded the edge, you’ll need to fold the paper inwards like so. 👇

Stick the wrapping paper together with some sellotape so it’s secure all the way along.

Step 3: Time to fold the base

This bit can get a little fiddly, so be sure to follow our instructions closely… 

Fold the bottom of the wrapping paper upwards, around 8 - 9cm of it.

Next, push the sides of the fold inwards and flatten it down, creating a kind of hexagonal shape.

Fold the top of the ‘hexagon’ inwards and do the same with the bottom like so…

Finally, stick both pieces down with a piece of sellotape and pull the base outwards.

You may even want to pop your arm down the centre to open it all up, just like this 👇

Voila! Your base is ready to go 🤩

Step 4: Now’s the time to bring in the bottle! 

Stand your gift wrap next to your Bottled Baking Co. mix of choice and simply cut off any extra wrapping paper that exceeds well above the top of the bottle.

We’d maybe recommend leaving 10 - 15cm of extra paper which you’ll then fold.

Step 5: Pop the bottle inside the gift wrap and fold down the top

Once your bottle is safely inside the wrapping paper, fold down that extra wrapping paper, a few times too - especially if your wrapping paper is a little thinner.

Finally, use a piece of sellotape to secure the fold down. Now it’s onto the final stage - the fancy decoration 🙌

Step 6: Wrap the gift with ribbon and pop on the tag

For the ribbon, we’d recommend cutting off around 1m or so, so you can get around the whole gift and tie a nice bow too. 

Pop the name of that very lucky someone onto a gift tag and attach using just a teeny bit more sellotape.

This little wrapping hack also works wonderfully for wine, or any other bottles you would like to stand out under the tree. If using a taller bottle, just remember to cut a longer length to cover the top of the bottle.

If you’ve received one of our bottles as a gift, we’d love to hear about it!
