I am going to show you my method for wrapping beautiful presents!
The first thing you'll need to do is gather your supplies. Here is what I used:
Cut your paper to size, making sure it will wrap completely around the gift, and will overlap just a little bit. The sides of the paper should go at least halfway up the sides of the box.
Fold the paper (lengthwise) completely around the gift, and secure with tape.
Keep the taped side (seam) facing upward. Fold down the paper on the side of the gift, as shown below, creasing the sides of the paper downward.
Now fold each side of the paper inward, as shown below. The remaining flap of paper that is on your working surface should form a triangular point.
Fold the triangle upward and secure with tape.
Repeat on the other side, then turn the gift over so the taped seam is on the bottom.
Unroll some ribbon from a spool of ribbon, wrapping it around the present and leaving an extra length of ribbon for tying a bow later. Hold the tail (loose end) of the ribbon and twist the other length of ribbon (attached to spool) to cross over at a 90 degree angle, as shown below.
Then bring the turned ribbon around the underside of the gift. (Gift is now turned in photo.)
The spool end of ribbon should now cross over the loose end on top of the gift.
Circle the loose end of ribbon under the spool end which you just brought up from the underside. This just twists all sections of ribbon together where it meets in the middle on top of the gift.
Tie a bow, just like you would tie a shoe!
Fold the ends of the ribbon and cut diagonally, as shown.
It should look similar to the photo below, with cute little tails on the ends of your ribbon,
Add an embellishment, such as one of our flower gift bow clips!

If you would like to add a tag, just tie one around the center of your bow.

Here is the completed look! A beautiful present, certain to make the recipient feel important and special.

What do you do with your leftover yarn? All those small scraps of yarn and partial skeins of yarn from past projects that you just know will come in handy one day.
For me, the scraps of leftover yarn just keep adding up. And when I find that my scrap yarn basket is overflowing, I know it's time for a scrap busting weekend project!
There are many projects just perfect for these yarn leftovers! I thought I would share one of those ideas with you today. This is a scrap yarn blanket I made for my 3 year old daughter to use with her favorite teddy bear. Oh, she wants me to mention that her teddy is named Walrus. Don't you just love that? The blanket is such an easy and quick project, you could finish it in a few hours.
For this Doll Blanket I used:
Size J crochet hook (6.00mm)
Leftover yarn (I made sure to use the same thickness yarn for the entire blanket)
The first thing I did was make a big yarn ball of my scraps, using a magic knot to join the different colors. Here is what I did next:
Chain 51 sts
Double Crochet in second chain and in each chain across. Chain 2, turn (50 sts)
Double Crochet in second stitch and in each chain across. Chain 2, turn. (50 sts)
Repeat this row until the blanket is a size you are happy with. (I Double Crocheted 30 rows)
You could make a much bigger scrap yarn blanket and easily clear out your entire scrap yarn pile!
(Thank you to my sister, Lauren, for this project post!)
