At Paper Source (see previous post for details about this store) I found neon craft thread which gave me an idea for gift wrapping.
I have an excellent gift box from Paperchase (www.paperchase.co.uk) which is a a ridged, clouded plastic which is ideal for jewellery, cuff links, sweets or small gifts. I decided to use the neon thread to 'wrap' the gift box by using two strips of each colour.
I like the simplicity of the gift wrap and the brightness of the colour against the clear box with a darker insert.
SIMPLE KNOTS TO TIE THE THREAD
You could use different colours or type of threads. String, wool and raffia would all work well and you could use more threads to cover a wider area. I like the bright colours that stand out but you could use contrasting colours against wrapping paper or use tones of one colour
