On our trip to Napa earlier this fall, we brought home some delicious Madeira dessert wines for gift giving. The short, fat bottles didn't fit in a typical wine bag, so I needed to get creative wrapping them.
First, I measured a length of wrapping paper that wraps around the bottle
Tartan Wrapping Paper can be purchased HERE
Then, I cut the paper into strips all the way to the neck of the bottle
Flip the paper over, wrap your bottle, and secure with tape
Next, gather all the strips and secure with a bow
Holding the base of each strip, pull the strip with your scissors just as you would with curling ribbon (note: if you pull too hard, you WILL tear the paper. I tore at least three or four strips clean off, but you don't notice when it's all finished)
Voila! Curled wrapping paper!
You can adapt this technique to most any paper! I might try a few left uncurled too!
Merry Gift Giving!!
