Have an odd shaped package to wrap? Here's a fun little solution that won't cost a cent.
Gather up a few supplies; the comics section of the newspaper, a pair of scissors and a couple old t-shirts
Take one of your t-shirts and fold it in half lengthwise twice. Cut 1/2" strips along the bottom and open up the strips so that you're left with a loops of tshirt material.
Take each loop and pull it through your hand to make the edges curl inward. Then you you can cut that to the lengths that you need for wrapping. Need a visual? Check out my video tutorial here.
Now just take a handful of your curled up strips and wrap them around the neck of your package. Don't make it a habit of keeping old t-shirts laying around? That's okay, you can get them from my Etsy shop.
