This is a great way to wrap a present for a musical person, a musical gift, or just to do something a bit different with a birthday present. At Christmas, it would be lovely to get hold of old carol sheet music and wrap lots of little presents in that. I think a deep burgundy or red satin ribbon goes well, but you could pick any colour to suit you.

Wrap the ends of the parcel by folding in the two sides, then folding up neatly and secure with tape.

Cut the appropriate length of ribbon and lay it flat over the top side of the parcel. Wrap round underneath and cross over, then secure with a bow on the top of the parcel.

Attach a gift tag, or write neatly in blank ink on a space between the music lines.
