Giftwrap mini-tutorial

Some of you have been asking how I make these giftwraps. So here's a small tutorial. Take any kind of paper. Brown craft-paper, paper bags, newspaper, childrens drawings or whatever you can come up with. Here and here are some examples. Cut in a rectangular shape. No need to be precise.
Fold in half or in three, as long as the edges line up it's ok. I often make another fold for the bottom, because it looks nonchalant. Then sew around thee sides, leaving the fourth open.
Time to decorate. Here I have used a stamp set (Djeco) that belongs to my daughters. Most op the time I use grey or black ink for the printed look of it.
Put the present or letter inside and sew the fourth side. Or close it with just a staple and a punched heart, like I did over here.

Ik heb van een vriendin oude behangboeken gekregen
oa van designers guild, die naai ik ook zo!
en ik perforeer 2 gaatjes in de bovenkant en daar haal ik een lintje of een dunne strook stof doorheen!
