How To: Wrap Small Awkward Presents

box10

This post is the second in our gift wrapping series. The first post to learn to wrap a perfect present is here.  That is a great way to wrap books and easy to wrap things.  But what about awkward things?  We don’t like wrapping gifts that are odd-shaped, far too time-consuming.  So for these items we repurpose different packages to use as gift wrapping.  For this tutorial we used Chinese Takeaway containers, bought at an Asian supermarket for 20cents each, which makes this an inexpensive way to wrap.  We used scraps of fabric from making our gorgeous Colour Burst Necklaces (the tutorial is here). Here’s how we did it…

Materials

Chinese gift boxes or any other box available
Mail tags
Marker
Ornamental Tape (we used this gorgeous lacey tape but washi tape would look great too)
Fabric scraps – from gift making, you could easily use bits of lace, twine, string…
