All Wrapped Up – Color Blocking

I decided to take a cue from fashion while wrapping up my Mother’s Day present for Shelly. I used one sheet each of Solid Lokta – Magneta and Olive and while the color blocking is probably enough impact I did also add a little pleating detail on the band. I’ve done this kind of “tuxedo pleating” before, it’s become a great go to embellishment and always gets complements.

If you’ve ever made a paper fan than you can do this wrap. Starting from the center of the sheet accordion fold the paper a few times. Each time you fold the paper back just make it a little wider so that the fold is next to the last one instead of on top of.

I only did a few folds on each side but you could go crazy and pleat the entire box.
