Tutorial Tryouts are my reviews of DIY gift wrapping ideas from the internet and other sources. Click here for the whole series!
this beautiful post via the Giver's Log gift wrap index, which was in turn inspired by this tutorial. I started with my burgeoning stash of security envelopes.
The tutorial recommends using extra-strength glue dots to secure the rosettes flat. Having none, I wedged each ribbon between my laptop and other objects and dotted a generous amount of Aleene's Tacky Glue in the centers.
After drying overnight, they were ready to be decorated!
This guy got a gold center (also from an envelope) accented with another envelope bit.
The one on the left has real ribbon "tails"; the other two have paper ones (thanks to How About Orange for the idea).
What do you think?
