Upon a Fold

A little peek into the world of paper artistry

gift wrapping with fabric - corner tie wrap... August 1, 2011

Since adding the new fold section to the shop I’ve been playing with fabrics and discovering new ways of wrapping things. I’ve loved wrapping gifts since I was a kid, and well nothing has changed over the years. I used to tell my sister that I wanted to be a professional gift wrapper – is there such a thing?? Anyway, here is a nice way to wrap a gift with fabric. You can download the how-to here. And if you like it, please let me know and I’ll keep on adding more :) Happy folding, friends! xo

This is a great link with many variations of how to wrap with cloth. Designed by Japanese government. Enjoy! http://www.env.go.jp/en/focus/attach/060403-5.html

I like this pattern and yes, please do add more. Ways to wrap with paper or fabbric are always interesting.

What a lovely idea – I’ve got a couple of gifts that were sitting waiting for paper and thanks to this are about the be smartly wrapped in offcuts instead! More of these would be fab :)

I do love it! The how-to was pretty and so easy to follow. Can’t wait for more! :D

Jeannie – Yes! I love it and refer to it often. I wish our government did creative things like that too ;)

Anonymous – More on the way!

Kate – That’s great! Thanks for letting me know. I hope you had fun with your offcuts :)

Merissa – Happy to hear my instructions were clear! Thanks for leaving a comment. Yes, stay tuned for more.

Thanks Laura. I’ll put up more as soon as I have the chance so hold onto those offcuts!
