This year has been super amazing and so fun, and so busy! So when it was time for crochet teacher gifts, I fell back on an old standby - the Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf! But I wanted a pretty way to package them - and created the Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf Gift Wrapper!
After taking all three kids to JoAnn Fabrics to pick out the yarn colors for their teachers, the scarves themselves whipped up in a flash. A quick wet blocking, and they were ready to go. But I knew I wanted to create a special way to package them, and include wearing instructions at the same time. These ASIS Gift Wrappers fit the bill! They even feature the button tie in a fun (but still optional!) way. And they're not just great for gift giving - if you sell ASIS at craft fairs, these wrappers are a wonderful touch!
To start, you need to CLICK HERE TO PRINT THE ASIS WRAPPER. It's a PDF, so you'll need a PDF reader like Adobe. Make sure your printer is set to Landscape, and print as many as you need (do just one first to make sure they're printing as needed).
Then, go ahead and fill out the "handmade by" section as desired. We had some fun since they were going to the teachers, and I had the kids sign it with their own names (and his/her mom). Tag and wrapper in one! Then, fold the wrapper lengthwise, as shown below. As you can see, this puts the "how to wear" instructions on the inside, where the recipient will find it when they open it up.
Next, IF you are including the button tie, make two slits about .75-1 inch in from each end, big enough for your button to fit through plus a little extra. Make sure to go through both layers.
Now set the label aside and roll up the scarf. Lay it out lengthwise, and then fold over the top and bottom edges so they meet in the middle. Then, tightly roll the scarf up, starting at one end.
Now take the wrapper and insert the button through one slit, wrap the wrapper around the scarf, and insert the button through the other slit. Use a bit of tape to hold the wrapper closed.
Et voila! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. You can use regular printer paper, fancy cardstock, brown craft-looking paper, whatever you like! I hope you enjoy this fun free printable for the Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf, and have a fantastic holiday!
