Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day!

Giveaway Day

It's that wonderful time of year again. 

I know I'll be spending some time today checking out all the wonderful giveaways when I should really be sewing. 


SMS Giveaway Day

This time around I'm giving away a brand new copy of Ruby Star Wrapping by Melody Miller and Allison Tannery. 

If you have some time, check out the amazing Ruby Star Wrapalong that Sukie has been running. It's so inspiring to see everyone making projects from this book. 

I'm going to try to have at least three non-traditionally wrapped presents under my tree this year.

Details:
To win this giveaway, simply leave me a comment. Any comment. 
Need comment inspiration? Why not tell me about a time when present wrapping went horribly wrong? 

Giveaway is open anywhere in the world.
It will close Friday, December 7th at 8pm EST. 
Winner will be chosen by random.org

Note: If you are a no-reply comment blogger please leave an email address in your comment. Entries without any form of email contact will be voided.

  1. Oooh I'd love to get some creative wrapping ideas :) I've had a few cases where some of the box isn't covered on the end so I had to do some creative piecing!

  2. Once I wrapped a gift and ran out of paper twice, so the gift had three different prints of paper on it!

  3. I will tell you about a time where present wrapping was hilarious. I have been a Coke drinker for a llllooooonnnnggggg time. When they introduced the 2-liter size (in super-heavy glass bottles no less), I thought that was the best thing ever... except my mother didn't really agree. Something about me being six and rotting my teeth out or some silliness like that. My brother to the rescue!!! He bought one bottle for me and completely wrapped it using masking tape. It was so obvious what it was sitting there under the tree - I was in anticipatory glee for weeks!! I will never forget that present :-)

  5. I'd love to win this! I usually do ok with gift wrapping- although I usually try to use random stuff at home. For a couple of years I used old national geographic maps- those were a favorite!

  6. I tried brown paper bags one year.. they looked okay, I just needed more OOMPF in the add ons to the paper bags to make them look prettier. I didn't plan ahead enough.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love this great book. Thanks for the chance to win. I love to use creativity on gift wrapping :D

    ReplyDelete
  8. I don't have any bad wrapping stories. The only negative about wrapping is that my dad always cons me into wrapping all his gifts for my mom. He does ask nicely.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yes, this book looks so great, as do all the posts I've seen from it. I'm totally going to be wasting time looking at all the goodies too instead of getting things done....oh well! Maybe i'll win something, right??

    ReplyDelete
  20. This book looks so fun, thanks for the chance to win a copy. And I'm right there with you, it's my sewing time (aka little one's nap time) and I'm glued to the computer checking out all the awesome blogs!

  23. Well, there was the time I wrapped Christmas presents in some cute X and O paper that I found in the closet, and then my daughter informed me that it was a roll she had bought for Valentine's Day. The packages looked pretty cute, though.

  27. I love Ruby Star designs! I sewed the teapot fabric for my kitchen cafe curtains. In fact the print inspired our whole kitchen color palette. I try to use more alternative wrapping methods every year. I love sewing up drawstring gift bags that can be used for travel, shoes etc. Thank you for the fabulous giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a fun little book! Most times I'm lucky to get a bow tied on. Maybe its a good thing that my kids' wrapping of choice is old newspapers :)

    ReplyDelete

  30. I know there were newspaper wrapping incidents in my childhood when the newsprint came off on fingers, gift, carpet, etc. I love the idea of fabric wrappings. Cute and reusable!

    ReplyDelete

  33. wrapping one wrong??? It wasn't a complete failure but my attempt to get my 3 year to potato stamp some brown paper didn't turn out as great as I hoped

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh it is one thing I love is wrapping and putting lots of bows and ribbons on a present...

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've never had a wrapping go horrible wrong but none have ever gone exactly right either :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love this twist on wrapping. What a wonderfully breath of fresh air. Our family wrapping tradition is that we all run around like mad after midnight mass between the 24th and 25th and wrap like maniacs. It's hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Melody is fab, this book is on my list.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Comment ;)


    Ok, I'll be useful. That book looks great, been lusting after it lately. Plus I figure it can help with packaging ideas for Etsy shops and such too.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Looks like an interesting book!

    ReplyDelete
  40. this book looks delightful. :) thanks for the chance to win. i haven't had too many truly catastrophic wrapping disasters. but my husband is notoriously awful at it (on purpose, methinks). one year he wrapped my present in a papertowel and the note on it said it was to "my extra absorbent love"...we still crack up over that one.

    ReplyDelete

  47. I would love to win this book. Every year I try to be creative and sew something in which to wrap my mother-in-laws gift. Last year I spent many an hour making the perfect bag and then forgot to put the gift in it. Not one of my finer moments! Kelleighz@hotmail.com

  53. I have a ninja-mon wrapping story for you. My mom were wrapping gifts together and after everything I saw one in the pile with my name on it. I asked her when she wrapped that and she said while we were busy! I am 30 years old and my mother still snuck something in under my nose - hahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I would love to have this book! Oh, it always happen to me that whenever i need to wrap a present on a rush, i never have a nice paper at home!

    ReplyDelete
  55. We had a new kitten one Christmas who decided that wrapped presents were the perfect place to sharpen her nails! Everything under the tree was covered by shredded paper and chewed up ribbon. She is older now but she still lays across any presents she finds.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  66. Last year the bags for the plates we got my husband's sisters were not strong enough to hold them and started tearing. Luckily this happened at home just carrying them from one room to another, and no plates were broken, so we ended up just tying a ribbon on each pile of plates and giving them like that!

    ReplyDelete
  67. One year we tried wrapping snow sleds with regular width wrapping paper. It was awful!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  78. Mmmm. Dont think Ive ever had a wrapping problem. However we can always tell my dad's presents because he uses a black sharpie to write the names on packages.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I can't say when wrapping went horribly wrong, but it is SO aggravating when you fold down the sides to find that you've cut short and have to piece it (family) or redo (friend). Argh. Thanks for this giveaway -- I've seen this book around and it looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  80. No horrible wrapping incidents. I tend to use materials on hand - newspaper, grocery bags, fabric, handmade fabric bags, etc. More personal, less waste. kristie_keely(at)yahoo(d0t)com

    ReplyDelete
  81. My husband is not the best wrapper and the first Christmas we spent together he gave me a teddy bear. Needless to say it was a wreck.

  85. Merry Christmas! I remember when I worked at FedEx - sometimes people would not declare the contents of their international packages & we'd have to unwrap their Christmas presents to find out what was inside. It was horrible - that wrapping paper NEVER looked the same!

  88. 3 years ago I was pregnant and like Princess Catherine I was horribly ill all day and night. My husband had to wrap all the gifts while I gave instructions with my head in a bucket... I will make sure I am never in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy at Christmas again. I didn't even get to eat Christmas food.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  103. I always co-ordinate my wrapping and all that. i have decided that it is pointless for young children as they just rip toget to whats inside.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I know I love receiving gifts thoughtfully wrapped, so I'm always looking for new and FUN ways to wrap gifts, especially those odd-ball shaped ones. Gift bags are an easy choice, but too easy sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  110. The worst that has happened is running out of paper. I'm my family's chief executive gift wrapper, everybody comes to me to have their gifts wrapped.
    Inspiration is very welcome, particular for objects that aren't rectangular. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  116. What a great book. As for wrapping catastrophe's, anything oddly shaped that I don't have a bag for. The wrapping always rips. I've ended up using large pieces of fabric for my family so I can take it back afterwards. -grin-
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  118. I live wrapping presents and one year in college my mom asked me to help wrap Santa gifts for my younger sister and brother. Athough this wasn't a surprise, I was not happy to be included on the other side of the magic.

    ReplyDelete
  122. A few weeks ago I had to attend a bridal shower and realized at the last minute I didn't have a gift bag large enough for the gift. Not having any wrapping paper, I decided I would just quickly stitch up a fabric gift bag. It wasn't anything special, but with a big white bow it worked well enough. At this shower, all the gifts were passed around for everyone to see after the bride had opened them. I could hear ladies further down the circle discussing a pillowcase. I didn't pay too much attention until it got close to me and I realized it was my gift bag! I am sure the ladies were wondering what strange person would give a bride just one pillow case? :)

    ReplyDelete
  123. A huge favourite part of giving Christmas presents for me is making fun wrapping, so this book has had my eye on it for a while now!

    ReplyDelete

  128. I really dislike it when the box is bigger than the wideth of the paper and you have to start patching it together. Thanks for a great giveaway~!

    ReplyDelete
  129. One year my mother asked me to wrap my sisters presents and her to wrap mine, but she gave us the wrong bags and we ended up wrapping our own presents.
    Thanks for the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I don't really have any horrible wrapping stories, but I do remember having gift wrapping competitions with my sister - in the day when we only had wrapping paper, stick-on bows and a spool of plain curling ribbon (I think we went through miles of ribbon!). Thanks for your giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  131. one year I got books for a number of people. Then I hand stamped brown kraft paper and wrapped the books. But I forgot to put the tags on the gifts as I wrapped them. They all looked like...books. Had to unwrap and rewrap. And of course I had waited until the wee hours to do this.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I am excited to try making some reusable wrapping this year! :)

    ReplyDelete
  133. Cool giveaway! I've enjoyed following the "wrap along." I once opened a box to make sure the glasses I'd purchase for a gift were in tact. Then I wrapped the empty box. Thanks for the chance to win! akmajor (at) gmail (dot) com

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  140. I haven't had a present wrapping disaster but I have had a present re-wrapping disaster from when I peeked at my Christmas presents when I was young & couldn't get them back to their original state. I didn't ever try that again. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I have been eyeing this book! I haven't had a disaster yet.. but I do buy cards, and gifts, hide them, and can't find them!

    ReplyDelete
  143. I wrapped a gift once to send overseas and realised I had left an important part out...too late! I had to send a second parcel! Ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  144. We always have odd wrapping incidents in my house. We've decided to embrace them though. My sister and I especially go a little nutty. For my birthday one year I got a "Bring It On" multi-pack wrapped in color coordinated collaged brooding male models. I had to open it in the middle of a busy popular local restaurant. That's ok because the last present I sent her was mostly pretty pink flowers, fabrics and furniture collaged on the outside of the box with one side being a giant magazine two page ad that said, "Ask Sherwin Williams where babies come from" in bright pink.

    ReplyDelete
  145. I can never think of clever answers to these questions. The only thing that comes to mind is that several times I have wrapped presents and forgotten who they were for and had to unwrap to find out! Lovely book.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I have always loved wrapping presents and I cant think of a time it has gone horrible wrong. eatkin85(at)yahoo(dot)com

    ReplyDelete

  148. I like to recycle wrapping - or use recycled goods! So one year everyone got presents wrapped in plastic bags!

    ReplyDelete
  149. I'm terrible at wrapping things up. I always try to and it never looks like those department store packages.

    ReplyDelete
  150. if it is not a rectangle or square than it will look horrible if i wrap it!

    ReplyDelete
  151. Last Christmas I decided to make all of the presents I was wrapping look like something Martha Stewart would do, but that meant that I had to stay up super super late on Christmas Eve. The good news: they all looked beautiful!

    ReplyDelete

  153. I don't think I've had a time where the wrapping went bad - I'm a bit of a perfectionist and love straight and symmetrical, so I usually do a pretty precise job. I do love to find unusual wrapping ideas that challenge my OCD side though! Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  154. I'm pretty lucky, I do ok at wrapping..however its not uncommon for me to wrap something and then realize I left and item out and have to rip it all apart and start over! Thank you for the giveaway!

  160. My husband one year wrapped up an empty/half broken down coke box with a print out of an email inside of my gift. He had such a hard time wrapping that box, it looked horrendous:)

    ReplyDelete
  161. I'd love this book. The only thing that goes wrong with wrapping is the last minute scramble to wrap everything in one night!

    ReplyDelete
  162. Cool! Thanks for the chance; the book looks awesome:)

    ReplyDelete
  163. It wasn't wrong because it was intentional. One year, my husband and his close friend wrapped each others presents up in plastic grocery store bags and duck tape. They loved it. It was hilarious to watch them un wrap their presents!
    I really like the glimpses of this book I've been getting around the internet. Thank you for the giveaway!

  165. I've seen bits and pieces of this book online, and I'd love to own it.

    One year my mom and I wrapped everything using all these ornate designs (very 60's, out of a Woman's Day article if I remember correctly). Cotton ball santa beards, construction paper curls, the whole 9 yards. It was ridiculously over the top, and was totally destroyed in mere minutes once the unwrapping began. Never again!

  172. I used to work as a private Investigator. I know that pretty random, but I figured you know how great the book is already, and that we obviously want to win it because we are entering, so I thought I would tell you something about myself that you wouldn't know.

    Thanks for the chance.
