A rose by any other name is a ……… scarf!
Wrapping does not always mean having to hide the gift in its gift wrap, sometimes it can wrapped so it can be seen but presented in a lovely or unusual way.
Scarves can be very uninspiring to wrap, they become this flat, limp wrapped gift so we have come up with something to make it a little unusual. A rose. Here is how to do it and it is far easier than it sounds once you follow the instructions.
You will need:
Scarf or similar fabric gift
Cellophane cut to size
Ribbon (not necessary but always nice
- Take the scarf out of its packaging
- Open out the scarf to its full length and size
- Fold it in half so it forms a near square
- Fold again, this time corner to diagonal corner to form a triangle
- Roll the base of the triangle up towards the point
- Stop rolling about halfway up
- Take the far right end of the scarf and roll it from base point to the other base point.
- With the remaining base point, tuck it into one of the previous rolls
- Lay your scarf rose carefully on your cellophane wrap (I promise it is in the picture, you just have to look really carefully!)
- Roll the rose up like a florist would
- Tie the cellophane with ribbon or twine for a more rustic look
Viola, you know have your rose scarf ready to present to your birthday girl. See, like I said it is easier once you follow the step by step instructions.
We used our Andrea scarf which is available at Crimson Tiger by clicking on here for only £9.99. If you really wanted to treat someone you could do a bouquet of scarves. Ask us nicely we might even give you a discount if you were to order more than 3 scarves!
We would love to see your photos of your rose scarves or even tea towels would work just as well. You can tweet them and tag us in your tweet @crimsontiger3 or visit our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/crimsontigertrading/ and Instagram https://www.instagram.com/crimsontigertrading/
