Wrap it up!

Gift wrapping...seems like most people either love it or hate. What about you? Do your presents have perfect corners, coordinating ribbons, themed gift tags? Or are you one of those people that accidentally cuts the wrapping paper rectangle too small so that you end up "piecing" the paper, and then just skip the ribbon all together? 

Gift wrap lovers, you'll LOVE this. Gift wrap haters, you may not love it, but you'll certainly appreciate it (and maybe reconsider that no-bow position?!)

Judy Hansen, designer of the Nutcracker Christmas collection, found a new use for her fabric--wrapping! The true icing on the cake, though, are the pom-pom bows. 

Judy made these cool accessories using Clover's Flower Frill templates
Gorgeous, aren't they? 

We love seeing all of these presents wrapped up in Nutcracker Christmas--it really puts us in the holiday spirit!

The best part of fabric wrapping paper? You can recycle it by using it your next quilting project! 

And just for fun, Judy also sent us this bloom, made with an old wooden spool center and garment tissue paper petals.

You can find more information on the Flower Frill templates here; you can also find them in Judy's online store, the Quilt Shop of Deland.

Happy wrapping!


  1. They are gorgeous, but I'm the one who has problems wrapping. I can admire them even though I will never make one. :-)

  2. I love to wrap presents, but these would have my name on them under my tree.

  3. I would love to receive a gift box wrapped like this . . . especially if fabric was in the inside too!! :)
