In the next two weeks chances are you’ll be heading to someone else’s house for a meal, celebration, party, or event and chances are you’ll be bringing a goodie of some sort – whether it be a sweet treat, wine, or bubbly. Try this simple and unique approach to packaging up your token of appreciation or party contribution, which doubles as another gift for the host after opened. More detailed directions are below, but basically it’s securing two sides of a tea towel with a simple stitch that can easily be removed so that the recipient then has the towel to enjoy. If you’re looking for treat ideas, check out earlier posts with recipes for caramel party mix (link here
) and homemade granola (link here
). If going with homemade options such as these, make sure to package them up in a plastic bag prior to putting in the tea towel.
These are holiday themed, but this idea can be used at any time throughout the year. Anthropologie always seems to have darling dishtowels, which I can never justify purchasing for myself. But as creative gift wrap for goodies? Absolutely. How cute would these be for a baby shower?
