  • Cut a strip of solid card stock to wrap around loaf. Use scallop scissors or a punch to trim the long sides of the strip. Layer two narrower strips of patterned paper over the card stock; fold and tape the strips around the cling-film-wrapped loaf. Tie ribbon and a tag around the paper strips. Place loaf in a pan and tie with another ribbon.
