GIFT WRAP SERIES #13: FRINGE

GIFT WRAP SERIES #13: FRINGE

Here's a baker's dozen entry with a pop.
 




SUPPLIES:
- Crepe Paper

- Scissors

- Rolling Applicator Glue (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?

metallic version:
- wrap present in silver wrapping paper.

- Replace the crepe paper with strips of silver wrapping paper and follow the instructions below.
