Funky Gift Wrap

Episode DCLB-141

Guest Bethany Mann demonstrates how to make fun, funky and fabulous gift-wrapped packages. First, Bethany demonstrates wrapping a gift in colorful origami papers and putting photos of the recipient on the package, then embellishing it with cut-out letters and wire to create a 3-D effect. Then, Bethany makes a gift bag by carving potato stamps of a skull and stamping them with acrylic paint onto a stitched paper bag. Next, Bethany stitches colorful ribbons to create a gift envelope to hold jewelry or a gift card to a favorite store.

FIELD PIECE: Roving reporter Cat Greenleaf gives passers-by ribbon and scissors and has them make their own decorative, creative bows!
