Ruby Star Wrapping

A ball shaped gift is about as awkward as you can get when it comes to packaging.  My son made several ornaments for his friends and when it came time to wrap them the Chinese Take Out Boxes from Ruby Star Wrapping were a perfect solution.

He had seen the one I had made early November as part of the Wrap Along and decided to make his own.  We used Pellon fusible interfacing and he chose a variety of non-Christmas fabric so that they could be repurposed all year long tailoring the choices to the personality or interest of each person.  Rather than using a hot glue gun, the bottoms were secured with Tacky glue and contrasting fabric strips were used to tie them closed.

With the rush of the Holidays pictures of all of them weren't taken but I'm glad we could share a couple.
