Well, I have lots of ideas, but it won’t be possible to put all of them in one post because of the amount of photos ( I think it’s the best way to explain the how to-s ).
But first a pic about the top-to-be:
So, here are few ideas how to wrap a small not heavy gift, like for example a jewelry, badge and similar stuff. I will use inexpensive materials, the light motive is staying duct tape free if possible.
You will need paper in color, color-changing double yarn that is used to embroidery or golden (or any other metallic glittering) thread, sewing needles, fishing-line (it doesn’t has to be dirty as mine 🙂 ), beads, ruler (not necessarily broken 🙂 ),pencil, eraser, scissors:
Draw a line (on all 3 open sides) that will be 5 mm apart from the edge and draw little points alongside that line 5 mm (if you plan to use thread) / 1 cm (if you plan to use embroidery yarn) apart from each other, like this:
Make a huge knot at the end of the yarn/thread that surely won’t pass throw the little hole on the paper. Pull the yarn/thread throw the paper so that the knot stays in the interior, close the paper and pull the yarn/thread throw the same hole again making a loop, pull the yarn/thread throw that loop twice in the same direction.
When you have done the very last stitch, pull the yarn/thread once more throw the last hole making a loop, pull the yarn/thread throw that loop twice (making a knot) an pull it severely, cut the yarn/thread.
