Each Monday 10am mst, I’ll have a link-up party on my blog.  This is your chance to showcase what you’ve made from Ruby Star Wrapping.  The link-up party will close on Saturday 10pm mst (one entry per person and you can’t link the same one twice). I’ll draw a winner on Sunday and send the winner an email. Then another party will start the following Monday all over again.   But keep those links, because Sew, Mama, Sew will also have a link up party at the end of Wrap-along on their site so you’ll have twice the chance of winning something fun!

    I’m not sure I understand the question–I think I must be tired. The item I need for wrapping most often is a fabric, drawstring bag. I use those a lot and instruct the recipients to pass them along. The items I wrap most often are books; they are my go-to gift.

  • Reply janine October 28, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    I make up fabric drawstring bags that fit the gift, sometimes big and sometimes small. They are so handy in any size and the recipient usually enjoys them as much as the real gift!

  • Reply Sarah October 28, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    I like using fabric gift bags and love hearing what people use them for afterwards, they always get used for something .

    I’m rubbish at wrapping things in a pretty way. My best efforts involve colorful tissue paper and fabric drawstring bags. 🙂

  • Reply Marisa October 30, 2012 at 6:27 am

    I always reach for my washi tape when wrapping gifts!

    I love using red grosgrain ribbon at Christmas. It’s so festive on brown paper packages.

  • Reply Jana October 30, 2012 at 6:37 am

    It’s not a package without ribbon. Thanks for the chance to win a great book.

  • Reply moira October 30, 2012 at 6:37 am

    I always search and search for tape. I can never find any even though I know I have some. I need a collection of funky tape!

  • Reply Shevvy October 30, 2012 at 6:53 am

    I have to think about the basics first, can’t wrap without sellotape.

  • Reply Karen F @ capitolaquilter October 30, 2012 at 6:55 am

    Just the right kind of twine or ribbbon to pull it all together. If I win the book I’ll gift it to one of my MQG friends so they can hop along with me since I got my very one at SS’12 already. Thanks for the give away and hop.

    I love wrapping books. . I do have a few journals that I need to cover since the fantastic holiday theme isn’t what I’m looking for.

  • Reply anne October 30, 2012 at 8:11 am

    Creativity. That’s the only really consistent tool I use when wrapping things. Otherwise, I tend to use either pretty paper or brown paper (sometimes I stamp it myself).

  • Reply Elizabeth J October 30, 2012 at 9:22 am

    This looks so fun!

  • Reply Krista - Poppyprint October 30, 2012 at 9:46 am
