Reusable Christmas Wrap #1--Candy Cane Rolls

This tutorial is sponsored by Cherry Lane Textiles.  
Be sure to check out her shop

Note: This tutorial makes 4 Candy Cane Rolls.  :)

  • 1 fat quarter Red Stripe fabric
  • Ribbon
  • Toilet paper tubes
Step 1: Cut your fabric
Cut your fat quarter (fabric measuring 18 1/2" x 22") into quarters.  Each piece should measure 9 1/4" x 11"

Step 2: Cut your ribbon
For each roll, cut two strips of ribbon each measuring 9 1/2" to 10" long.

Step 3: Singe ribbon edges. 

Quickly and carefully run the raw ends of your ribbon close to a candle flame.  This will seal up the ribbon ends to keep them from fraying.

Step 4:  Get it ready
Place gift inside toilet paper roll.  With the gift inside, place your toilet paper roll along one of the long edges of your fabric.

Step 5: Roll it up

Roll the toilet paper roll and fabric together.

Step 6: Tie on your ribbon
Tie ribbon on each end in square knots.  I also like to just tie a little tag on at the same time. 

And you're DONE!  :)
 Wasn't that easy?
