Crumpled Brown Paper, Ribbons and Candy: Gift Wrap Idea


Guess what this is?

A dear friend’s birthday – the gift was ready, but all I had was
crumpled brown paper – not perfect, but then I hate the perfection of
store-bought wrapping paper. So I used it. Here’s how it all turned out.

Roll gift  (a pair of printed cushion covers)


Leave the last bit unrolled


Fold in the crumpled paper, and roll the paper around the gift


Tie the ends with some pretty ribbon


Both ends tied



I used Falero strawberry candy to decorate the rather plain looking middle – there was a reason
why I chose these particular candies, so that’s where the personalization came in!

Hmm, not perfect, but just so! …. 😉
