fiesta gift wrap

April 25, 2014

Amigos!  Thanks for sticking with me while I get through this little scheduling bump in the road here at Circus Berry.  If you checked out my post here on Monday, you would see that I am changing things up a little bit.  Well, I didn’t quite intend to have such a scheduling hiccup, but this week has been full of one curve ball, obligation, or setback after another.  Here I am though, sharing a fun and festive gift wrap idea that fits nicely into the upcoming Cinco de Mayo holiday.


It goes a little something like this…I had some friends over for a little fiesta last week (sharing details soon, can’t wait!), and had some left over decor.  Of course I couldn’t just ditch it…finding new uses for things is sort of an obsession.  So, I wrapped up a gift with it, making a super fun fiesta gift wrap!

Basically, you cut strips of tissue paper and fringe both sides.  Tape the paper together at the ends.  Once your gift is wrapped in paper, just add your fringed, fiesta trim.  Finish with a bit of bakers’ twine.  You are done!


Go ahead…Ooooooh.  Aaaahhh.  I actually like rubbing my hand on the fringe.  Tactile issues…


Stay tuned for more fun fiesta ideas this week!

    I love this! So much better than just reusing tissue paper in a gift bag (which may or may not be what I’m doing with a birthday and a baby shower gift this weekend…).

    So you layer the colors after or before cutting the sides?

      I did mine one color at a time, then taped the different fringed strips together. You may be able to do it the other way too though. Play around with it and see what you get. I like the randomness of it all.

    This is so darned cute and since I did the pinata eggs I have lots and lots of crepe paper streamers. Love working with that stuff. Take care, LInda
