Day 17: Custom Gift Wrap

A few months ago my friend Becky and I exchanged Christmas gifts ( I know...Christmas in April right?) Well what impressed me was the care that Becky took in wrapping the gift, she constructed a bow out of strips of brown construction paper and then used turquoise for the body. It was beautiful and very difficult to throw away. Tonight I used old book pages, some craft paper, an old button and some glue to spice up a boring brown gift box. Now I have to think up a gift to put inside :) My assignment to you is to come up with a creative way to wrap a gift, for once forget the lazy thrice re-used bag and crinkly tissue and get your art on. It's the little things that make all the difference.

  1. Ahh! That's me! Haha. I'll have you know that just last week I created another amazing gift wrap job for my two nephews. Awe yeah! Receiving presents are great, but beautifully wrapped ones are even better!
