The idea for this series was born when a friend requested quick ways to make a gift look nice before running out the door. Want more? Click here to see every 5 Minute Upgrade post to date!
Start with a clean container. This little box used to hold mushrooms from the grocery store. Set the container in the center of a piece of tissue paper. I happened to use a dip-dyed piece of packing paper. Any soft, thin paper should do.
Faithful Gifted Blog readers will recognize the fabulous paminboots gift wrap. Since M. has been writing a food blog about her home cooking, I thought it would be fun to use the mushroom paper for her presents (a handmade lip balm and soap). As a fun touch I put the card in a sesame seed box instead of an envelope.
Blog note: This post converted a Wrap Story into a tutorial. What do you think? Does this hybrid work, or should I keep the tutorials more distinct? I am rethinking the Wrap Story series as I try to make The Gifted Blog more useful.
