For Christmas, we bought our moms rings with our sons birthstones it in. Instead of putting it in a ring box I really wanted to do something a little more creative.So I came up with this new way to wrap little presents.
I had seen a post of people sewing paper together to do larger presents. So I decided to use this concept but make ornaments out of it. We made circle ones but you could make them any shape you want. I think the star ones look really cute and may make some soon 🙂

Steps to Making Your Little Wrapped Present
Cut out two circles so you can sew them together later. We used large paper lunch bags. You could use almost any paper to get to the outer wrapping. I think scrapbook paper might be cute too!
You will need to sew around the edge but leave a big enough opening to put your stuffing and gift in. I left a little bit of an edge on mine you can do it closer or further away depending on the effect you want.
Now you can get creative and draw/decorate away! My boys loved this part because they could draw or color what they wanted. My boys each had a side they used sharpie markers to color what they wanted. It’s going to be a special gift from them after all :)I think they just used random colors to fill the space but grandma and nana will love it.
Now you can put in your shredded paper or stuffing and the special present. Don’t fill too full or you won’t be able to sew shut.
Put the ribbon in the opening about an inch in then sew the hole shut. Here is a link to some cute ribbon I found.
Now you can hang on your tree without losing it in your other presents or filling up the bottom of your tree 😉
