I've been topping some of my gifts with fresh herbs. It looks festive, smells wonderful, and can be put to use in holiday cooking.
Tuck a bundle onto a package wrapped with baker's twine or lace. If you don't have any greens of your own, check your grocery store for fresh rosemary, sage, and thyme- a wonderful and classic combo. The two latter herbs need to be added right before giving, as they'll begin to wilt.
Rosemary is quite sturdy, on the other hand. Tie some to a gift bag for instant cheer. Below is an easy way to wrap with rustic, reusable appeal in three easy steps.
- Pull out several strands of jute from each short end of a long burlap rectangle (to create a fringe).
- Fold in half lengthwise. Sew up the sides and lock stitches.
- Insert a gift and secure with twine and fresh herbs.
Have a wonderful weekend!
