Button Gift Wrapping

Posted on

 

Here's a couple of cute ideas to use some of your button stash in gift wrapping;

 

In this first one I have used plain brown wrapping paper and 3mm green gingham ribbon threaded through a 40mm green and white button.

This is a great way to use up your 'one off' and loose buttons.

In this second picture I have used a personalised embroidered initial button to act as a gift tag along with 3mm red ribbon. Wrap the ribbon round two or three times then thread the ribbon through the button shank with a large needle.

You could also used coloured elastic by fastening a loop through the shank on the button, pull round the parcel and secure back over the button. This would look effective with brightly coloured buttons and large fabric buttons.
