Unique Wrapping for Sewists

This morning I took a few minutes to check out my pins on Pinterest and saw that Bunny had repinned
the felt necklace that I reposted yesterday as a gift idea. Thanks Bunny!! As I looked through her pins, I found this wonderful picture.
What sewist wouldn't want a present wrapped like this? And I love the vintage buttons clipped to the side. Just too cute. I can be such a child at times as I would rather have the wrapped present than whatever is inside. You know the old story, you give a child a wonderful present and they play with the box. I guess that's me!
I'm sure we all made paper flowers when we were children, but just in case you have forgotten, here's a video that will give you a quick refresher. The flower in the video is held together with a pipe cleaner, but a twist tie would work just as well.
The second video shows a more attractive and fluffy flower.

  1. Great idea. Hadn't thought of paper flowers since I was a kid. The video was helpful. Since I will be traveling to another state for Christmas, these flowers could be folded but not "bloom" until I get there, thereby allowing me to wrap boxes and pack in suitcase without crunching the bow or flower. I will use these this year for sure. Thanks.

  2. This looks fun to do! Thanks for yet another helpful post
