Jackson County - Gift Wrapping
Youth participating in the gift-wrapping project will learn how to wrap various shaped containers using different wrapping techniques and their own creative themes.
- 4-H member must fill out a record sheet to be turned in with the green / white record book.
- Packages wrapped for exhibit should not contain an article.
- Attach to project 4-H-618AW "4-H Craft Information Card" for description of work completed on the project.
- If multiple pieces make up the exhibit, a photograph of the complete exhibit should be attached to the exhibit so the total exhibit can properly be displayed.
