Hi readers! I’m Charissa, and I write about creative gift wrapping over at The Gifted Blog. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably a little in awe of Michele. She has a way of coaxing the simplest of materials into something stunning.
When I heard about her Drop-Dead Denim month, I wanted in on the challenge! I love recycling found materials into my gift wrapping but I’ve never done much with denim. I had a blast coming up with these 3 gift wrapping ideas and hope you enjoy them, too!
Ombre Gift Cuff:
Using a seam ripper, remove stitching from the cuff of an old pair of jeans.
And you’re done! Love how this shows the history of this particular pair of jeans – the original color of the raw denim, the lightening wash it was given in manufacturing, and worn strip of fabric where the cuff hit the shoe. A lovely ombre effect.
For this one you’ll need a small rectangle from an old t-shirt and a section cut from a pair of jeans.
Last one! You’ll need the shredded cuff of a pair of jeans (or long strip of similarly distressed denim). Using a seam ripper, unpick the stitching.
