Cakies, and they just about did me in. How adorable is this? Though I've written about it before (#2), this is the first time I've actually seen a mini scarf on a gift. I love how it turned out.
I was also impressed with the texture Ruby achieved with a simple length of yarn. Knitting and crochet fans, take note. Put the odds and ends in your stash to good use as you gift wrap this season!
I tend to collect paper too, but the trick for me is knowing when something is worth keeping. After amassing a fat collection of security envelopes, one of the last times I used them was making prize ribbons. Maybe this will inspire me to break them out for wrapping Christmas presents!
Rubyellen, thank you for the inspiring gift wrapping ideas. I am a new fan and reader! Check out more of Rubyellen's creative life on the Cakies blog.
