Gift Wrap Inspiration: A New Way to Add Ribbon

 Gift Wrap Inspiration by ConfettiStyle4

It all started with a trip to The Container Store to pick up some shipping boxes…

Everytime I go into The Container Store I have something specific I’m planning to buy.  But that always changes once I’m inside the doors.  I get sucked in by all the beautiful containers, jars, boxes and wrapping, and my imagination starts to go wild.  It never fails that I come home with a few items that weren’t on the shopping list.

Gift Wrap Inspiration–DIY Flower Bouquet

Hi there! I hope you’re having a good day. The sun is shining again today here in Atlanta and that makes it a great day in my book. As promised,  I’m back today to share an easy Gift Wrap Inspiration for you, perfect for Mother’s Day.

Flower Bouquet 2

I always take extra care when it comes to wrapping a gift for my mom.  She’s one special woman and deserves a special gift wrap.  For her mother’s day gift this year I decided to craft a flower bouquet for the outside of the box.

Here’s how I did it.

Once the box was wrapped in a black and white check paper (from TJMaxx), I added a band of pink striped grosgrain ribbon.

Next I folded the left and right edges of a paper lace dollie towards the center of the dollie to create the shape of a cone.

Flower Bouquet 3

I taped the dollie on top of the ribbon and paper and used glue dots to attach an assortment of paper flowers.  The pink roses, yellow flowers and pink and yellow tiny flowers came in a cluster on stems so I simply inserted those into the cone and added tape behind to hold them into place.

The last step was a pretty pink bow and a gift tag.

Since I can’t give my mom flowers in person, her flower bouquet wrapped gift will do the trick.

Happy Wrapping!

Gift Wrap Inspiration using a leftover sweater!

As you know I love wrapping gifts and I try to be creative with every gift I wrap.  After completing my Cable Knit Table I had the rest of the sweater lying around and was looking for a fun way to use it.  A few cuts with the scissors, some ribbon and a few embellishments and I had the makings for some fun and easy holiday gift wrapping.

Old sweaters and patterned shirts are an inexpensive way to wrap gifts and make them unique.

I used the sleeve of the sweater to create a gift bag for a wine bottle.  The top was tied with a red and white striped ribbon and a snowy white felt flower was attached as a fun embellishment.  I’m working on a project using the felt flowers and will unveil that to you soon.

Wrapping a tubular item with paper can be a bit tricky on the ends but a sweater or fabric piece makes the wrapping easy. The cable knit pattern looks great in a circular format and tying up the ends of the sweater piece with pretty ribbon is as easy as it gets.

For this last gift, which fit into a small box, I used a piece of the sweater to wrap the box just like I would with paper.  Because the wrapping was a sweater I thought the addition of a paper mitten gift tag was the perfect embellishment for the top.  Can you guess what’s inside the box….(gloves maybe)!

Gift Wrapping Tips Using Clothing:

*  Use pieces of clothing that have visual interest like a texture or pattern 
*  To keep the ends of cut fabric from fraying, trim the edges with pinking sheers
*  Double sided tape will work well with most light weight fabrics.  For thick or textured fabric, use a dab of hot glue to hold the edges down.
* Incorporate details of the clothing piece into your wrap…buttons, pockets, collars and such
Before you toss out any old sweaters or pieces of clothing, take a look and see how you could use them as creative gift wrapping.
Happy Wrapping!
