Simple gift wrapping idea

Hello everyone! It's been awhile since my last post. Whew! Time really flies so fast. Just a quick post for today to share a simple gift wrapping idea. 

I've been out with a group of friends a few days back and we usually give small casual gifts to each other most of the time when we do meet. At times we have specific themes for the gift just for fun. We have been doing this for around 5 years now. Since, I'm the only crafty gal in the group they usually expect handmade gift or something handmade in it. 

Here's how I wrapped my gift.

 This is great for wrapping slim, round, long items (oh you're wondering what's inside...just guess).

I made this out of cardstock and utilized my scraps of pattern papers to cover all sides. So simple: score, cut, fold, glue then add little embellishment and a hemp cord for closure. So nice and easy!!! Done in no time!

I place our initial at the bottom. This is also the name of our group - OGGII. If you ever wonder why one has a black base, she just love to have something black with whatever she gets...gotta make her happy!

However simple it is, my friends just love the idea of receiving handmade items and was more excited with the wrappings than the gift. One told she will not open the gift so she will not spoil the wrappings. Yay!!! I wonder how she will use the girly item inside :P

Keep this wrapping idea in mind for your gifts, giveaway items or favor box.
It's good to receive but it is more than good to give.

Create, share and inspire.

Have a lovely day!
