How to gift wrap a bottle

December 20, 2013
Here is an idea for easy bottle gift wrapping. It can be used for Christmas gifts if you use festive colors and you will only need a few tissue papers and maybe a piece of ribbon.

Lay your tissue paper flat and stand the bottle upright in the middle of paper. bring the corners of the paper up and with your hand pressing against the paper and the body of the bottle, go around. Creases are unavoidable and will add pretty texture :) 

Cut a wide piece of tissue paper and wrap it around the neck of the bottle to hide the top of tissue paper.  I left the cap and a part of the neck without any paper, that way I could hold it from the neck. 

Cut a ribbon of a contrasting color tissue paper (maybe 1" wide), wrap it around the belly of the bottle secure with double sided tape or a dab of craft glue. Add a a cute ribbon bow and there you have it.

Have a good one,


How to make a beaded friendship adjustable bracelet

Bead bracelets are pretty and very fun to make. There are lots of different ways to make them; some require lots of tools and jewelry findings that I usually don't want to spend money on. In this tutorial I'll show you how to make a beautiful bracelet with only a few items.

This is how the finished bracelet looks:

You will need:

  • Knotting cord or any kind of craft cord 
  • Beads, the hole size should be a bit more than double the size of your knotting cord: my knotting cord is 0.5mm and beads hole size 1.3mm
  • scissors
  • (optional) Jewel-it glue or a lighter  

Okie, lets get started:
