2 glittered tree twigs

one, and wrap it around the gift.

Step 4: Add a little sparkle with a branch or two from your favorite floral arrangement
Fabric Gift Wrap
by JoeAnn Fabrics Crafting Team
2 yarn pompoms
2 Fabric glue
1 gift tag
Step 1: Cut a square of fabric two times the size of the box you are wrapping. Iron the edges.
Step 2: Lay out fabric and position the box in the center of the underside of the fabric.
Step 3: Fold the fabric over like you would wrap a regular package. Add a couple drops of fabric glue or use a pin to hold in place. Make sure to keep wrapping tight and smooth.
Step 4: Gather both ends, twist and secure with a cut strip of fabric or yarn.
Step 5: Tie the yarn pompoms around the twisted fabric at either end of the box.
Step 6: Embellish with a cute gift tag tied to one end.

1 sheet of plain paper
1 sheet of cellophane
Confetti or cut-out paper shapes in a variety of colors
Step 1: On a plain sheet of paper, cut to fit gift, toss a handful of confetti or cut shapes, making sure the pieces stay towards the center of the page.
Step 2: Place double-sided tape along edges of paper, making sure you leave no gaps for the confetti to escape.
Step 3: Place a piece of cellophane the same size as the plain paper on top, pressing firmly along the sides.
Step 4: Wrap your present and give it shake — if nothing breakable is inside — and watch the confetti and shapes move around the package.

2 thick ribbons
1 gift tag
5 thin ribbons
5 or 6 pencils
Step 1: Wrap your gift.
Step 2: Tie the thin ribbons around a large pencil, spaced a little less than an inch apart.
Step 3: Affix the two larger ribbons in the opposite direction down one side of the box and tape the ends to the bottom.
Step 4: Pull the thinner ribbons taut to the opposite end and tape to the bottom of the box. Use one larger piece of tape to keep the ribbons spaced properly and manageable.
Step 5: Weave the other pencils (twigs or dried flowers can be used as well) between the thinner ribbons, over and under, and repeat. Add a gift tag with a fun message.
