What’s better than a warm, snuggly throw blanket? Wrapping one up as a gift! This tutorial will show you how to gift wrap a throw blanket in such a way that it looks fabulous and the receiver will love it!
What You’ll Need To Gift Wrap A Throw Blanket:
-Ruler or a straight edge
-Card or paper cutter
1. Start by taking your throwing blanket and laying it out flat on the ground. Take note of the corners so you know where to start wrapping. 2. Next, begin by cutting the wrap around the blanket using a scissors. Make sure to leave a 1″ border around all sides of the blanket. 3. Once you’ve cut all of the wrap, lay it out flat on top of the blanket and tape it down with a piece of tape measure centered on one corner of the blanket. 4. With your ruler or straight edge, draw a line down the center of the blanket from top to bottom, then divide it in half horizontally (this will be your first “fold”). 5. Next, fold each half of the blanket inwards along this line, being careful not to crease them (you’ll have four folds in total). 6. Finally, once all four folds have been made, unfold them so that they are now standing up on their own and tuck them underneath one another at both ends (making sure not to creased). 7. Now write a card or say something personal to your recipient inside one of the folds before tucking it into the other end (this is optional). 8
How to Gift Wrap a Throw Blanket
Looking for a fun and easy way to giftwrap a throw blanket? Follow these simple steps!
1. Cut the blanket into appropriate size pieces. For a rectangular-shaped blanket, cut it in half down the long side; for a circular-shaped blanket, cut it in half around the circumference.
2. Fold each piece in half so that the raw edges are touching.
3. Take one of the ends of the folded blanket and twist it tightly around the other end once or twice. This will create a “bunny ear” shape.
4. Repeat with remaining ends of blanket.
5. Tie each bunny ear together with a short length of fabric string or ribbon, making sure to tuck the tail underneath before tying off securely.
6. Finally, give your gift wrap an extra layer of wrapping paper or tissue paper and hand-sew or tape over any neatly tied ends to seal them off (or use a recycled Smythie foldover bag if you have one handy!).
Tips for Making the Perfect Gift
When it comes to gift-giving, there are a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, think about the person you’re giving the present to. What is their style? What are their interests? Once you’ve got a good idea of what they like, start shopping! There are all sorts of different gifts out there that can fit any personality.
Next, think about the occasion. Sometimes people don’t want or need anything specific. They just want to be treated well! Other times, people might need something specific for a certain event or holiday. If you’re not sure what to get someone, try looking online or at stores in your area that specialize in personalized gifts.
Once you have a general idea of what to get and know the occasion, it’s time to start wrapping! A throw blanket is a great way to show someone that you care. Here are some tips for wrapping a throw blanket:
1) Choose your fabric wisely. Throws are designed to be cozy and warm so avoid materials with harsh textures or patterns – it will be difficult to keep the blanket looking new over time. Instead go for soft fabrics such as flannel, terrycloth or fleece.
2) Try using an extra large box if possible – this will make it easier to wrap without having lots of folds and creases ruining the effect. Boxes also come in handy when giving larger throws as they can double as acolytes – decorative pillows
Wrapping a Throw Blanket
If you are holiday shopping for a friend or family member and they love to sleep on couches, beds, or anywhere else they can find a cozy place to rest, then a throw blanket is the perfect gift! wrapping a throw blanket is relatively easy – just follow these simple steps:
1. Begin by creating your blanket design. It’s fun to get creative and mix and match different colors and patterns.
2. Cut out your blanket design using a sharp knife or scissors. Make sure the edges of your blanket are even so it looks uniform when wrapped.
3. Next, fold the blanket in half so that the long sides are equal in length (or shorter if you prefer). Pin the fold together along one long edge so it stays in place.
4. Next, take the other long side and fold it up until it meets the first folded edge – making sure to tuck it inside so it’s hidden. pin this second fold down with a few pins so that it doesn’t move during wrapping.
5. Take the short end of your fabric strip and wrap it around both folded edges once – making sure to tuck it inside as you go. Then repeat on the other side of your fabric strip (wrap around once, tuck in). You now have two wrapped blankets!
6. To finish, use some more pins to hold everything together while you tie off each end with a nice knot – making sure not to pull too tight or it will start
