book wraps


I wrapped the tissue paper twice around the book. To get the frayed end, I smash the paper together and cut it at a sharp angle.

The recipient usually can tell the gift is a book so, it’s not necessary to conceal the content. I like to have fun with the cover art instead.


I was loaning this book to someone and just couldn’t resist wrapping it. She thought I was nuts of course…


  1. tie the tissue and trim it very close
  2. twist a piece of green tissue
  3. loop it around the knot and splayed out the ends

This book was a gift for my son’s scout master. I unrolled the paper ribbon for the bow.


Wrapped this book for my brother recently. The embossed wax paper was on the sale table at Texas Art and I found the colorful paper ribbon at Ikea, 2014.
