I offer two design choices here. I have knitted three size options, but these wraps can be worked up to fit virtually any size or shape gift box that needs wrapping. After the recipient opens her present, the gift bow becomes the handle on the project bag or sturdy, planet-friendly market bag (depending on the size knitted). For a small boxed gift, you can knit a small wrap with a flap closure. It will transform into a soft, secure smart phone case that will continuously remind the recipient of what a thoughtful gift giver you are. At the same time, it will be protecting her phone, making it easy to spot if she misplaces it. What better way is there to present a hand-knitted gift item than in a hand-knitted gift bag? The thoughtfulness that went into the knitted gift can be extended to the gift wrap, and this will enhance the recipient’s happiness and appreciation. Well-planned presentation adds to the joy of the gift-giving experience for the gifter as well as for the giftee. And who among us has cleaned up all that expensive wrapping paper after a holiday celebration and not thought about the wastefulness? We live in an age when people are growing more concerned and conscientious about environmental issues and the need to avoid pointless waste. Stash busting, another ecologically sound and responsible choice, is an important feature to consider when knitting gift wraps, as well. Use stash or yarns left-over from other projects and turn them into beautiful gift wrappings.
