Holiday Wrap Countdown #12


I am counting down toward the holidays with twelve different ideas for gift wrapping. Stay tuned for more!

Wrapped with: Sheet music
Tied with: Torn strips of fabric
Topped with: A paper ornament and a paper tag

Keep an eye out for sheet music at thrift stores and garage sales.

Tearing fabric into ribbon strips is simple. Choose a lightweight woven fabric that does not stretch. Quilting fabrics work great. Make a small starter cut with a sharp pair of scissors along an edge of the fabric piece. Tear down from this cut; don’t be shy! You may need to iron the torn strips before tying them to packages.

To make simple tag that works for any occasion, cut a rectangle of paper and fold it in half. Write a “to and from” inside and attach it with double-sided tape.
