Unopened Gifts Contain Hope

“I don’t know what’s in the box, but I love it. Unopened gifts contain hope.
”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invincible.

Receiving a gift is receiving hope. If the gift is beautifully wrapped,  it heightens the expectation and the hope, while opening it.

This is the reason why I love wrapping a gift in creative and unexpected ways.

Here is one way of wrapping a gift in reusable fabric.

You will need:

Lengths of  soft fabric in colours you like, the size depends on the size of the gift.

Ribbon to match.

A gift to wrap.

Here is how to do it.

Although the gift contains merely a chocolate, the wrapping makes it special, sending a message of care and love.
