Gift Wrapping Hack: Inside Out Box

Have you ever needed a box for a gift (or other purpose), found the perfect size, but hated the fact that it was covered with print/graphics that identified its original use. I love reusing boxes, but always feel like the print on the outside of a box takes away from the beautiful wrapping. Although this hack won’t work every time, I’ve pulled it off many times in the past. Simply take the box apart and reassemble it inside out!

Check out my latest video to see how simply it can be done! Now you don’t have to feel so bad about using that old tampon box to wrap that special gift…Ha! Ha!

skipping rope for ribbon

This is the final video in my Skip It! series. In this video tutorial, I use a classic skipping rope in lieu of both the ribbon and the bow! The handles are left on the rope and add extra interest to the finished gift. This particular idea would work best on a children’s gift, as the skipping rope becomes part of the present itself. This look is definitely fun! The bright colours, thread of sparkle in the rope and extra interest of the wired garland certainly would catch the eye of any little girl!

skipping rope to gift wrap

This is my third post demonstrating how you can use dollar store skipping ropes to embellish gifts. In this episode, you will see how you can keep it generic or zero in on the extra special child in your life, by making the focal point part of the gift as well. For this look, I combine a Chinese skipping rope (loving these), satin ribbon and traditional curly ribbon. Check out my latest video to see how it’s done!
