Gift Wrapping Ideas
Every year, I like to do something special for my gift wrapping. This year I thought I would take a different approach with the ribbon.
This project is for sewers of all levels.
Skill Level- 1 Button
- old pattern instructions
- sewing machine
- iron and ironing board
- rotary cutter and self healing mat
- I pressed my pattern instructions on a mid level heat setting to help remove some of the creases. Not necessary but how I started my project.
- Cut pattern instructions into a manageable size. I cut them 6 1/2″ wide. (the width of my quilting ruler)
- Overlap short sides to short sides. Zig zag stitch the pieces together. (I like to use a contrast color here for fun.)
- Continue adding stitching pieces together until you think you have enough. To make things easy, I worked in sections of two.
- Then with rotary cutter, self healing mat and ruler- I cut my paper into 1″ strips. You may want something smaller.
- Back to the machine to connect the last bits with zig zag and let the wrapping begin.
