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!

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!
If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, this gift wrapping idea is not new. Today I posted a new video with a birthday version of the concept. I had originally created a blog post outlining the steps for using a pull-tab tin can as a gift wrapping container in a Christmas post. It is one of my favourite hacks and I can honestly say my family is forbidden from ever using the tab to open such cans. We always use the can opener, so I have a small collection of cans I save as a unique way to present/wrap small gifts.
