Thanks for these videos- most helpful. Just a suggestion, though… use prettier papers- colors and tissues! Brown is boring. They would be much more fun and would sell more ideas and combinations, too! Also, I always wrap my inside gift, such as the candle, separately, THEN I put it into the cross laid tissues. That way my recipient just doesn’t lift out the candle- they lift out the gift- still wrapped and then unwrap it- its more fun that way! :)

This works great for heavy items such as a candle, but for clothing items I’ll try explain a way to do it without crinkling the paper that’s also helpful. I will lay the tissue paper out flat, then I’ll grab a piece from the center pulling it upward so that all the corners will collapse together (I will usually use about 2 sheets of tissue paper, pending of size of bag, more may be required). Hold the centers of both pieces of paper together, then twist them together at the base. This will make it easy to place in the bag and it leaves the tops perfect. I will usually wrap the clothing in a piece of tissure before I put in the bag and top with the twisted end of the tissue in the bag.

Thank You
