-simple wrapping paper (I used the back of one I had since I didn't want any design on the paper)
-felt (three or four colors)
-thin ribbon (i like it to have some sparkle to it)
-small hold punch if you have one...if not scissors will do
I got this idea from an Anthropologie ribbon I saw from last year...and I loved it! I cut out a bunch of circles from leftover felt I had...
Then I punched two holes in each circle...
I then strung them onto the ribbon (long side)
and scrunched 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 :-)
