Fabric Scraps for Gift Wrapping

Fabric Scrap Gift Wrapping

I was given a gift that was wrapped in this way and it was so cute that I kept it in the back of my mind for later. Since Christmas is the season of giving, I thought I share it with you all!

This is a lovely way to use up little scraps of fabric that you have and takes a plainly wrapped gift up a notch.

First, cut your scrap of fabric to size. In the photos, I’ve used a 6″ square. Start off with a piece a bit bigger than you think as you can always trim it down.

Put your ribbon under the wrapped gift it bring it up to the top and secure with a knot.

Holding the bottom of the fabric with your thumb, work up the middle pinching the fabric into a concertina. Hold tight between your fingers. If you’re not happy with the shape of the bow, then trim off strips from the top for a less curvy bow, or the sides for a shorter bow.

Holding the bow, put it on top of the ribbon and then tie the ribbon over the top. You can work the rest of the ribbon into a little bow or a neat knot, depending on the look you want. You can see my finished wrapping at the top.
