Gift wrapping with yarn

On Pinterest, I have a board named gift wrapping. It contains the most amazing ideas circulating the web and I love getting inspiration for my own gifts.

In line with the above, I never throw away scraps of yarn because I know one day they will come in handy. And they do.
I created these:




The possibilities are endless. If you are interested my board is here.
Have a nice weekend!

So very clever! The third would be my favourite, too, but then again it would, wouldn't it, looking so much like a flower! Have a great weekend, Maya!

Lovely! I use yarn for gifts because I have so much of it. I also use it to tie up little gift bags of baked treats. Sometimes I crochet chains and use that to tie around things. I love those crocheted necklaces in your previous post. so many pretty colors! Have a great rest of the weekend. Tammy

Great idea!
I knew there was a reason to keep all the little scarps! ;)
I just have to hide them from my husband or they'll desappear for ever!!!
