Pieces of fabric in assorted fibres and colours
Selection of flora
Tip: Select soft, natural fabrics such as linen or cotton for a touch of elegant simplicity. For bargain buys, search the remnant bins at your local fabric store.
Cut fabric to suit size of gift.
For a square-shaped gift, lay fabric flat and shaped like a diamond. Place gift in centre.
Fold one corner over gift. Fold opposite corner over the top.
Bring together the other two corners of fabric and tie in a knot to secure.
For unusual-shaped gifts, experiment with size and shape of fabric.
Decorate gifts with leaves, small branches or handmade name tags.
