December 15th, 2015 by Camelot Fabrics

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! Can you believe that there are 10 more days until Christmas?? I finally got my tree up and decorated this weekend, and gosh – does it look and smell heavenly!!

 

Time for this week’s How To’s Day! Today we are featuring our easy fabric gift wrap ideas, just in time for your upcoming gift-wrapping sessions (complete with a cup of hot cocoa and your favorite holiday movie). If you’re like me, you’ve got a couple of last minute gifts to pick up… and never seem to have enough wrapping paper. Where does it all go? Haha. Well, no worries – because your overflowing fabric stash can help you out! So many pretty options to choose from, and it makes it that more special!

There are 4 unique gift-wrapping options we’re sharing with you! We’ve got all of your gift wrapping challenges covered. Click MORE to see the full tutorials.

FABRIC GIFT WRAP IDEAS

 

1) GIFT WRAP OPTION #1 – works well for any gift size

TOOLS/SUPPLIES:

  • Kraft Paper
  • Fabric of Choice (We chose our Alchemy Collection, SKUs 2143301 #3 and 2143303 #2)
  • Gift Tag
  • Twine or Ribbon

STEPS:

1 – Measure out and cut a piece of kraft paper, enough to cover your gift. Cut a piece of fabric long enough to wrap around the width of your gift. You can also choose to wrap your gift in fabric first, like tissue paper!

 

2 – Wrap your gift with the kraft paper! We like folding in opposite sides first, attaching a piece of tape to hold…

 

…and then folding in the alternate sides, like an envelope.

 

3 – Wrap your piece of fabric around the width of your present. We like having about an inch of kraft paper peaking through, at the top and bottom.

4 – Add a pretty piece of ribbon or twine around your present, along with a gift tag and voila – pretty as can be!

1) GIFT WRAP OPTION #2 – works well with any gift, from a jewelry box to an oddly-shaped toy!

TOOLS/SUPPLIES:

STEPS:

1 – Optional step, but you can wrap your gift in fabric first (like tissue paper!). Cut out a large piece of fabric, enough to wrap around your gift.

2 – Place gift in the middle of your fabric. Take fabric corners of opposite ends, one in each hand, and tie them together. Do the same for the other two corners.

1) GIFT WRAP OPTION #3 – works well with tubular gifts or something rolled (such as a sweater!)

TOOLS/SUPPLIES:

  • Fabric of Choice (We feature our Winter Wonderland collection, SKU 6141506 #2)
  • Elastic Bands
  • Ribbon or Twine
  • Gift Tag

STEPS:

An optional step, but you can choose to use more than one fabric to wrap. Just be sure to roll them together, with one on top of the other.

 

1 – Cut a piece of fabric, enough to wrap around your gift with loose ends. Roll up your gift!

 

2 – Tie both ends with elastic bands to secure, and then add some festive cheer with twine or ribbon.
