Upon a Fold

A little peek into the world of paper artistry

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

howto_1
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 :)

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