I usually find my fabrics at thrift stores ...they can be clothes, tablecloths, curtains, sheer curtains, fancy pillow cases etc...make sure they are in wonderful condition and launder them of course once they are bought home .
This fabric in the photo used to be a curtain .
I cut it to the size I would want plus an extra inch around each edge so I could turn them over and hem them..simply because this fabric frays a lot .
If your fabric does not fray then don't sew it .
I simply printed out the design I had used on to computer paper.
Then took it to my craft room and found a lovely piece of card that is purple with butterflies all over it and sprayed the back of the printed design and pressed it on to the backside of the card.
Cut it out and punched a hole in the corner for the ribbon to go through and I trimmed each corner with a fancy shaped trimmer scissors (optional)
I love to use scraps of fabric for ribbons ....
You can wrap a gift in fabric then get a long piece of fabric or a scarf (also can be found at the thrift store) to wrap around the gift just once under and over and tie a large knot on the top ..you could decorate it with old jewelry perhaps broken pieces ...and cheap jewelry from the thrift store.
For Mother's day use cotton floral fabric and once wrapped decorate with a fabric flower or two
I would love to hear your inventive ideas on gift wrapping
