Quick Zebra Pouch

Are you looking for quick, simple and creative gift wrap?   Here are a couple of things that worked for me! 

It's such an honor to guest post at  Inspiration Cafe again!  One of my gift wrap projects is a guest over there today.  Take a look!

Here's the second gift wrap idea! 


Do you ever get those freebie skin care kits that come with a small  FREE  zippered pouch?  Well, I do, too!

Zebra Pouch

Using a little duct tape, the freebie zippered pouch got a slick makeover! 


There's only one little tricky part - cutting tabs.  I used the grid on the back of the duct tape to help keep the cuts straight.  Make sure you cut the duct tape neatly, then fold in those flaps to wrap the sides. 


Next, fold the bottom part of the duct tape over the side flaps.  Add a little zip of color at the top and use a scrap for the zipper tab.


There you go!  I'll be using this as gift wrap for unique jewelry found on Etsy! 

Thanks again to the girls from  Inspiration Cafe !  You really know how to make me feel welcome!   

Happy Wrapping!  ;-)  -Marci
