- Place the voucher in to a cardboard tube and wrap with fabric
- Decorate a plain envelope with wrap and ribbon
Make an easy Gift Pouch
With some clever folds of a remnant of gift wrap and some double sided tape, you can easily make a gift pouch which is ideal for giving flat gifts such as vouchers, bars of chocolate, jewellery and linens.

Roll the money or voucher and tie with a narrow ribbon. For festive gifting you could roll around a cinnamon stick and it will smell great too!
Place the scroll in to a gift box or a handmade gift pouch
Bag it up
Place in a paper bag and decorate
This is such a simple idea…you may want to pad the gift with some tissue before placing it in to the bag. Seal the end with double sided tape and add your ribbon and tag
Frame it up
Place inside a flat picture frame and wrap up with some clever folding ideas to give it some height. This technique is covered on The Art of Gift Wrapping DVD
Wrap the voucher in a tube with fabric
This can look super luxurious and all you need for this project is a cardboard tube. With some clever furoshiki folding with some fabric and a brooch, your gift can look mouth waveringly beautiful

Decorate a plain envelope
Often when you are giving a voucher, it comes in its own envelope. Rather than write the recipients name on the front, wrap it as though it’s a gift. A strip of decorative gift wrap embellished with a ribbon bow around a plain white envelope is so quick and easy to do. Voila!
