This Tutorial Tuesday, Caitlin of Real Swanky will be showing us how to wrap gifts without the use of paper! It's a great way to utilize your..
- spare fabric
- a bandanna
- a cute vintage handkerchief
- a dish cloth or towel, which may be part of the gift, to boot!
You will need:
- Your gift
- A square piece of fabric (or whatever you are using to wrap) that is at least 3 times the length of the longest measurement of your gift
For my gift, I'll be wrapping up my latest embroidered piece, an anatomically correct brain (details here). It measures 7" in diameter, so I made sure my fabric was at least 21" long. For placement, start with your gift at least 1-2" away from the edges of your fabric's perimeter.
Flip the whole piece towards the other end of the fabric once.
Take the fabric on the left and right side, and tie it into a knot, as you would tie your shoes.
This method of wrapping is great for just about anything -- books, soaps and perfumes, cooking utensils, boxed goods, and a heap more.
