Of course, I had waited till the last minute to wrap my gift - procrastinating runs in our family. LOL! Thank goodness I remembered that gift wrap paper will curl if you cut it into strips. I took the scraps that were left from wrapping my box and used my decorative edge scrapbooking scissors to cut it into 1/2 inch strips. You can use plain scissors if you want - I just wanted to impress my brother. :-)
Now I took the edge of my regular scissors and gently pulled them down the strips the same way you would curl curling ribbon. Now I stapled them together in the center. I added raffia to mine but plain paper is cute too. All I had to do now was tape it to the gift. I think it turned out great! Watch for my blog post on Nashville Wraps' blog site with even more details. Here is a link to another cute trick I posted there.
