I love the idea of using recycled things to wrap gifts, buuuuuut... I only managed to make two Gift Wrap Wednesday posts last year.
Thanks to a new washer/dryer combo and a caustic amount of bleach spray, things are recovering nicely in my laundry room. For that reason, I have plenty of used dryer sheets. Will I throw them away like a normal person? Of course not! Today's Gift Wrap Wednesday tutorial shows how to recycle dryer sheets into a cute flower bow to top your gifts.
You will need:
2-4 used dryer sheets
a pretty button
needle, thread, and scissors
ribbon (about 2 feet)
Start by cutting about ten circles from your dryer sheets. Don't worry about making them perfectly round - no one will be able to tell from your finished flower. I'll be using my flower bow on a small gift, so the circles I cut have a 2.5" diameter. Set two of the circles aside for later.
