How to wrap a gift: beautiful paper feathers

Want to make a gift look extra-special?
How about making some gorgeous paper feathers to decorate it with?
These only take 10 minutes to make!

I saw this idea at Lia Griffith’s fabulous blog and at first glance thought it would be too difficult or take too long for me to do. Β I couldn’t have been more wrong. Β In 10 minutes I had a little package looking like this!
