Here is a quick tutorial. You will need kraft paper; a needle and some thread (I used the Anchor Mercer Crochet Thread No 10).
|Fold the paper as if you would wrap your present|
|Mark your cross-stitch pattern on squared paper - cut it out and stick with |
masking tape on the area you want the motif to be.
|Mark the pattern with a needle|
|Thread is hold double|
|in the corner of the parcel..|
