One thing I love about Christmas is wrapping gifts.
Ruby's Christmas gift came in the mail today, to refrain from giving it to her early I wrapped it right away. Since I like wrapping gifts so much I decided to take pictures of my process with Ruby's gift.
I wrapped the box with postal wrap then I made some "bakers twine" with embroidery floss.
To make the "bakers twine" I took equal lengths red and white embroidery floss, taped it to a bench and twisted until I was satisfied with the way it looked. I then took the twine and wrapped it around the wrapped gift. I didn't just want to tie it so I took an old button and threaded it with the twine then tied a bow.
To mark the gift I took a pipe cleaner, shaped it into an "R" for Ruby and wrapped yarn around it.
I think I like it!
