Here’s a last minute tutorial for any of those books you’re wondering how to wrap! The gift bags that I make, I love, but they aren’t great for the really flat items like books or calendars. So I came up with this gift wrapping technique.
Step 1- Measure the books (or anything flat that needs wrapping). Be sure to overlap a few inches.
Step 2- Cut your two pieces of fabric.
Step 3- Pin ribbon to fabric. Pin the fabric about 1/2 inch to an inch from the top edge.
Step 4- Sew two pieces of fabric, right sides together. Leave a 2 inch hole in the side. I try to locate my hole on what will be the back of the bag.
Step 5- Pull the fabric through the hole.
Step 6- Iron the fabric bag. Layout the fabric to get the flaps overlap how you want them.
Step 7- Topstich. Start at the bottom corner and stitch around.
Step 9- Insert your book, pull the ribbon around the back and to the front. Tie your bow.
Step 10- Give that book to someone you love!
