Wrap A Gift In An Unusual Way
Repurpose fabric into a pretty cloth envelope to give as a gift.
Create something special for that special someone by taking the time to wrap a gift in an unusual way. My favorite way to do this is by using fabric.
I started with a hat. My daughter wore this in a school play when she was in middle school. She was one of the seven dwarfs in Snow White, so hence the odd shape.
I used scissors, ribbon, buttons, needle, thread and fabric glue.
Here is what I did step by step
Fold bottom up
Fold top over to make a flap
Cut and glue the bottom
glue ribbon on the opening of the flap to cover up the frayed edges. Make sure not to glue the opening closed.
For the bottom glue the material together then glue a ribbon on top.
I sewed three buttons on the bottom and glued a heart on the flap opening.
The flap opens up so you can put something special inside.
This will be my Valentine's Day gift to my daughter stuffed with all of her favorite candy.
Never underestimate the impact of a pretty gift that shows you've taken the time to create something special
