Golden Leaf Wrapping Paper Design
Begin by rubbing some of the gold gilt wax onto the surface of the skeleton leaf, being really careful when doing so, to avoid damaging the pretty leaf.
Next, wrap your parcel in the brown parcel wrapping paper and add some more gilt wax to the corners and edges of the paper. Then tie around the gift using some golden twine, bring together the two ends and tie a neat knot. Then fray the ends to create a tassel style look. Slide the golden skeleton leaf underneath the twine and secure it with some glue if needed.
