I’m in love. I just wrapped my first present in fabric and it was SO EASY. Also, it’s the perfect solution for this particular present, because I have an usually shaped gift that I need to mail.
I have used a “Tootsie roll” style for wrapping presents with paper in the past, to solve the “wrap an object shaped roughly like a tube,” but the paper usually doesn’t hold up well. It crinkles and often tears. If I don’t mess it up putting it together, it gets torn handling it later.
I decided to try fabric, because, being a quilter, I have some lying around.
I found an article with written instructions that also included this short video on wrapping with fabric.
It couldn’t have been easier. No ripping, no tearing, no tape. I even used scrap fabric I had to make the ribbons.
What’s your favorite way to wrap presents?
