A piece of remnant fabric makes a great gift-wrap! (a quick tutorial)


Gift-wrapped-with-remnant-fabric

Sometimes the best kind of gift-wraps are those you already have in your stash...like remnant fabric. I have loads of weirdly-sized fabrics [courtesy of my mum's friends] which are not large enough to make a piece of clothing but big enough to wrap around a box...bento-box style. *winks*


I wasn't sure what to do with this piece of fabric. First off, the mustard colour was really bright. Secondly, it was soooooo crumpled and in serious need of an ironing. If you didn't already know, ironing is my most hated household chore...my entire wardrobe is built on clothes that require no ironing. Evidently, I had to find a "no-iron" solution to using this piece of fabric. *LOL*


The solution was to work in some folds and a huge knot at the top. And hide the ugly parts with ribbon and a hot glue gun.



Next I added some pearls.


And finished off with paper blooms, leaves and a glittered butterfly.

A piece of remnant fabric makes a great gift-wrap eh?

Gorgeous! I've wrapped gifts with baby blankets for baby showers or napkins and dish towels off someone's wedding registry, but always with the intention that the wrap is part of the gift. It would be a lot more fun to get in there with a glue gun and go to town!
