Wrapped with: Brown packing paper
Tied with: Crochet doily
Topped with: Embroidered fabric
Around the holidays, as online orders start arriving at your doorstep, you may begin to accumulate the brown packing paper that often accompanies these packages. Since the paper is already wrinkled, go ahead and crumple it up even more and then smooth it out. Its surface will be covered with a nice wrinkly texture.
This crochet doily is simply attached at the back of the package with double-sided tape. You can use paper doilies in the same way.
I used two scraps of fabric as the “tag” on this package. I had no idea how to embroider, but found some simple stitches online. You can do it too! Attach the tag to the doily with a safety pin.
