Creative Gift Wrap Idea: Movie Night DVD Wrap Tutorial

I love creative gift wrap ideas and when I saw this I couldn't resist making a few. It's a "Movie Night DVD Wrap". Giving a DVD as a gift doesn't have to be boring, with a couple sheets of paper you can create this fun idea, fill the pockets with popcorn, gift cards and candy and you have a great gift. Just insert your DVD in the middle!! If you'd like to make one of your own, the instructions are further down in this post. 
Tutorial Instructions: 

Cut: Two 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" Cafeteria Line (dot side) paper; Use pocket pattern and Favorite Subject (red) paper to cut 2; 3 3/4 x 3 1/2" Geek Speak (aqua); 3/4 x 3 3/4" Cafeteria Line (striped).

  1. Score both pieces of Cafeteria Line (dot side) 3/4" from bottom edge. Overlap bottom scored sections and adhere together. 
  2. Line top edges of both pieces of papers and round top corners on both sides. 
  3. Punch hole 3/4" from from top edge and center of front and back sides. 
  4. Use i-top tool, Geek Speak (aqua) paper and 34"mm brad to create XL brad. Place brad on front side as shown. 
  5. Double 24" piece of black and white twine and loop through back page hole. This will be tied over the top and around XL brad to keep wrap closed. 
  6. Use pocket pattern (looks like image A below) to cut 2 pockets from Favorite Subject (red) paper; cut on solid lines and score on dotted line. 
  7. Adhere bottom and side parts of pocket together and adhere to front and backsides as shown, approximately 3/4" from bottom edge. We recommend a very strong adhesive for pockets.
  8. Adhere striped piece to top edge of aqua paper as shown. Wrap doubled piece of b&w twine around paper and tie in knot. 
  9. Adhere quote piece to paper. 
  10. Use i-rock to add black bling to corners.
  11. Score star die cut from each peak and valley of star to center of star and lightly crease to make 3D. Adhere to pocket.

Love both of your movie ideas! Thanks for sharing, they are soooooo cute and would make such great gifts.

The download is wrong for the quote on the movie gift. Is there one for the quote on the front of the movie pocket?

Bonnie said...

Do you have the quote download for the movie pocket. The one you have is not the same as the one on the movie pocket.
