Crumpled Brown Paper, Ribbons and Candy: Gift Wrap Idea

Guess what this is?

A dear friend's birthday - the gift was ready, but all I had was crumpled brown paper - not perfect, but then I hate the perfection of store-bought wrapping paper. So I used it. Here's how it all turned out.

Roll gift  (a pair of printed cushion covers)

Leave the last bit unrolled

Fold in the crumpled paper, and roll the paper around the gift

Tie the ends with some pretty ribbon

Both ends tied

I used Falero strawberry candy to decorate the rather plain looking middle - there was a reason
why I chose these particular candies, so that's where the personalization came in!


Hmm, not perfect, but just so! .... ;)
