The other day I was needing to wrap two pieces of jewelry for gifts. I went to the store to purchase two cute little gift bags and I went down the wrong aisle, and what did I see but some really cute socks. Immediately I thought, why not wrap the jewelry boxes in socks. This would give the recipient an extra little gift, a pair of socks, very practical. After choosing two pairs of socks I walked down the aisle and on the end of another aisle I saw these beautiful fluffy feather pins or hair clips. I looked at the clips and thought these would be perfect to hold the ends of the socks together. Brilliant, now the recipient has another cute gift. This is how I did it.
I put the jewelry in a 3″ x 3″ box, the size can vary. If you have an oblong box like for a bracelet you can use a knee sock instead of a short sock.
Center the back side design if there is one too.
Fold both ends of the sock into the center where they overlap at least 1/4″.
Use a decorative hair clip or pin and clip/pin the two ends of the socks that are overlapped together.
It is that simple. Now you have a creative, beautiful and practical gift wrap.
It is so much fun to be creative with your gift wrapping. I have a cousin, Patrick, that was always extremely creative when he wrapped my Christmas presents when we were kids, and I have never forgotten the feeling I had seeing that unique gift wrapping.
Have fun and experiment with your next gift wrapping.
It is the cat included?
