It's a Wrap! Day 24

Colorful Ribbons

This idea is really simple and easy. Instead of using just one color of curly ribbon on a gift, use two or three colors. It adds more pizazz to the gift without taking a lot of time and energy.

It's a Wrap! Day 23

Bakers Twine Wrap

For this one you need a long length of bakers twine. Wrap the twine around and twist the ends a half turn at the back of the gift. Then wrap the twine around the other way. Keep wrapping the twine, twisting half turns, until you reach the end of the twine. Finish off by tying into a knot or making a bow.

It's a Wrap! Day 22

Brown Paper Package Tied Up with String

I took inspiration from the Sound of Music for this one. First I made a label using PicMonkey. I printed it and cut it out. I cut out a slightly larger square out of scrapbook paper and glued together with dots of glue in each corner. Or you could also use photo splits

Wrap your gift in brown paper or use a brown paper gift bag. Tie jute or some other kind of string around the package. Attach the label using glue stick or photo splits.

Free printable label. Feel free to save this to your computer, print, and use on your own gift.

It's a Wrap! Day 21

Bakers Twine and Doily Package

This one has a delicate look to it. It's a great wrapping idea for a wedding gift or shower gift.

You just need a paper doily and bakers twine. Place the doily on top of the gift and tie the ribbon on.

It's a Wrap! Day 20

Yarn-Wrapped Gift

Today's post is the start of strings and ribbons week. I'll be sharing ideas using yarn, bakers twine, jute, and ribbon.

This is a great idea using up those pieces of yarn that aren't enough to make a project with but long enough that you don't want to throw it away. It's easy peasy, too!

Take a long piece of yarn and wrap around the gift as many times as the yarn allows. To finish off either tie the ends into a bow in the front or tape the ends down in the back.

On this gift I added a strawberry ornament to embellish the package.

It's a Wrap! Day 18

Scotty Dog Silhouette

This is another one of my sister Bekah's ideas. She created this one but gave me permission to post it as part of my series.

You will need:
gift wrapped in plain paper
scotty dog silhouette image
decorative paper
glue stick
ribbon or yarn

1. Trace a scotty dog sihouette onto decorative paper. Bekah found a free clip art image to use by doing a google search. Cut out the dog.
2. Glue the scotty dog onto the package.
3. Cut a piece of ribbon or yarn and tie into a bow. With glue, adhere onto the scotty's neck.
