- simple wrapping paper (use the back of one if you don't want any designs)
- felt (three or four colors)
- thin ribbon... preferably with some sparkle to it ;-)
- small hold punch if you have one... if not scissors will do
Cut out a bunch of circles from leftover felt...
Then string the circles onto the long side of the ribbon...
Scrunch them nice and close together (the more circles you have the closer you'll have to scrunch them together... and personally I think the more the better!)
Once I knew they would meet in the middle I took both sides of the ribbon...
tied it in a knot and then for the middle (where you'd normally put a bow) I strung two felt circles on top of each other....
and tied another knot (so they'd scrunch together-- lots of scrunching in this project! ha!) to create a little flower :-)
I tied on a little bell (gives it a little ringy-blingy touch *ha) and slapped on a little gold round tag that I cut out from some paper I had... (I wanted to keep with the whole circular theme)
And there she sits, under the tree... waiting to be opened on Christmas day :-)
