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.
Old sheet music
Lay out the sheet music and work out the best way for the present to be wrapped in it.
Neatly fold over the wrapping paper and secure with sticky tape.
Wrap the ends of the parcel by folding in the two sides, then folding up neatly and secure with tape.
Wrap the second end of the parcel, making sure both sides are symmetrical. 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.

I did this on a paper mâché manquine a very basic version of decouraparge and it was a well received gift . I also created a card by tearing out the letters from old / recycled sheet music with my message Eg ' Happy Birthday ' looks effective .Lee
