When you wrap a box and there isn’t enough paper to go around, the ‘cheat pleat’ is just what you need!  Not only does it extend a sheet of paper but it is also the perfect way to recycle leftover giftwrap or make the most of double sided wrapping paper.  Keep it a secret by using the same design or share it with the world and mix patterns or colours.  Either way it is invaluable!  We’ll also be making flat decorations from scraps of giftwrap – ideal for gifts being posted or packed!  All materials included.

My signature pouch technique is a hot favourite, not least of all because generally you don’t need sticky tape.  And this way of wrapping certainly has the wow factor!  You do use a little more paper but the giftwrap can be reused by the recipient so it’s great if you are keen on recycling.  Ideal for DVDs, books, jewellery, small items of clothing, a collection of cosmetics and rectangular boxes.
