Introduction: Stack and Wrap Bottle Packs

Picture of Stack and Wrap Bottle Packs

Get creative and eliminate the need for tissue paper or excess packing materials by taking the term 'gift wrap' literally and using fabric-based presents to conceal a stack of stocking stuffers and other gifts. Ribbon holds it all together and the need for a bag is entirely optional depending on how you wrap and tie your stacked packs.

You'll Need:

Ribbon
Scissors
Gift Bottles (wine, other liquor, flavoured syrups, infused oils, etc)
Clothing to give as gifts; t-shirts, skirts and scarves work well
Optional: Wine bottle bags

Step 1: Stacking

Picture of Stacking

Start with a large, heavy, cylindrical gift - a wine or liquor bottle works great but there are many non-alcoholic gifts that fit the bill as well.

Lay your fabric (a shirt, skirt or scarf) out on a flat surface and fold until it is just large enough to wrap your chosen items with. Next place the base item down first and either stack flat-bottomed items directly above it or layer smaller knick knacks around the top (optional: tie small gifts onto your bottle with a piece of ribbon.)

Step 2: Wrapping

Fold the sides of your piece of clothing around the bottle and enclosed items then pull tight and tie with 3 to 6 strips of ribbon (if you need to, use a pin or two to secure while tying and remove after.) Make bows or curl the ribbon.

If you are transporting the gift a long way you may choose to slide the stack into a wine-bottle bag but this is not necessary. You can fold the fabric under the bottom to keep the entire package sealed and/or display on the mantle or in any other safe place where it won't get knocked over.
