Holiday Wrap #1

This is the last Holiday Wrap post of the series. Thanks for tagging along!

Wrapped with: Magazine pages
Tied with: Twill tape
Topped with: Origami Star of David and a manila tag

Select magazine pages for their colors and themes.

Look for twill tape at your local fabric store. It will often be available in white, natural and black. If you look at a specialty store or online, you will find a large selection of colors, widths, and thicknesses. I ordered mine here.

Origami makes a great package-topper. In this case, I folded a magazine page that matches the wrap. I learned how to fold this star here. This particular project was tricky, but there are many great origami tutorials in books and online that are much simpler. The manila tag pictured here is available at most office supply stores.
