gift wrapping

after being annoyed by this craptastic tape i bought at target i thought ill just use the ribbon to hold the wrapping paper around the gifts. but since my sewing machine was already out from altering some shirts i thought id try it out. coolest. idea. ever! i dont think you could do this with any wrapping paper but its worked brilliantly with this printed kraft paper i got at target. its a thicker weight than the typical xmas paper.

i just cut a piece big enough to fold over and made a seam on one side of it

did the same for the other side and checked to make sure the gift would fit inside there

(thats linds' gift)

then i made a seam at the top to close it up

BUT, after wrapping a couple of gifts this way i found an easier way with only two seams on each side. i just folded the paper around the gift and BAM BAM on either side and it looked so much cleaner

this made wrapping gift way more fun this year. wish i could figure out how to do boxes like this!
