GIFT WRAP SERIES #13: FRINGE

GIFT WRAP SERIES #13: FRINGE
Here's a baker's dozen entry with a pop.


Directions for Crepe Paper Fringe below.


For this metallic version:
1) wrap present in silver wrapping paper.
2) Replace the crepe paper with strips of silver wrapping paper and follow the instructions below.


SUPPLIES:
Crepe Paper
Scissors
Glue Roll (or double sided tape)
Neutrally wrapped package.



HOW-TO WRAP WITH A FRINGE:
Measure and cut crepe paper to a length that will wrap around the box. Estimate the number of pieces of crepe paper you will need to cover the package, allowing a 1/2 inch of overlap. Aligning the stack of crepe paper and carefully cut a fringe through all of these pieces. Do not cut too close to the edge. Starting on the top (broadside) of the package, estimate (or mark lightly with pencil, if you prefer) where the crepe paper will lay, starting from the bottom and moving up. Roll a line of glue or lay a piece of double sided tape & adhere the crepe paper around the package. Continue this process to the top of the package. (For perfect coverage, mark where all of the crepe paper will lay with a pencil before adhering the crepe paper to the package.)

Finishing touches note: Since this package feels a bit like a party popper, wouldn't a party horn feel like a fun compliment?
