Hostess Gift – Gift Wrapping Bread

I love finding new ways to wrap gifts. Today, I want to show you an easy and fun gift wrap for bread. This simple gift idea would be perfect for a hostess of a party, for a new mom or as a get well gift.

Here is what you need.

Steps:

  1. Wrap loaf of bread in parchment paper.
  2. Place bread in center of kitchen towel.
  3. Bring both sides up and fold down.
  4. Fold ends under loaf of bread and secure with scotch tape
  5. Wrap ribbon around bread and secure with scotch tape.
  6. Arrange flower embellishments, gift tag and secure with scotch tape.

Cost:

I’m always on the look out for kitchen towels on the clearance shelf at Target or local stores. I have a little stock pile in my craft closet. Most of the time I go shopping in my closet first! I made my own blueberry bread and had most supplies already on hand which made this project very low in cost. If I had to estimate with supplies and ingredients, it was for sure under 5 dollars.

Tips:

  • Using a piece of fabric would work as a great substitute to a kitchen towel.

Look and see what you have for ribbon at home first before heading to the store.

    • Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comment. Im so appreciative to Crystal for sharing it on her blog and bring so many sweet people by!

  9. Where did you get that cute towel!? I can never seem to find anything that looks so nice! :)

    • I totally agree with you. I haven’t found such a cute towel in a long time. I found it at a local store. The brand of the towel is called Kay Dee Designs. I originally bought one in a blue and green combo (same print) back in June when I made a gift for a friend and then I happened to find a bunch of the same print in pink/green and blue/green on the clearance rack for 1.5 each in July. So I bought all that were left(4).
      So I would just be on the look on the clearance rack every time you go to Target or Walmart.
      This specific towel is also 100% cotton so check your local fabric store, you might be able to find a fun print and make your own. :)
      If you prefer to not sew, iron on hem would be a great solution.
