Wrapping Paper Roses

One of my favorite things to do is wrap presents.  I have always loved to see what you can do to the outside of a gift to make it look fabulous.  It might even be better than what’s on the inside.I was wrapping a present for a birthday party, using two-sided paper.  I didn’t have any bows that really matched or I liked so I thought I would try my rose technique (click here for instructions).  Instead of hot glue I just used some double-sided tape here and there.  I left a tail at the end, cut them into strips and curled with my scissors.

I had no idea wrapping paper curled up like ribbon!   No more expensive bows or ribbon – just keep your left over paper scraps for later.  Happy wrapping!
