|Good job, Jaime! Is it for me? ;-)|
This year I'm taking a different, more artistic approach to gift wrapping. I'd like to pack presents in an original, more creative way. It's not only about being cheap. I think that handmade and and recycled gift wraps are much more interesting! Michelle from Young and Free New Mexico blogged about a few good ideas: using the newspaper, brown packaging paper (which we can decorate ourselves) or putting a present in a shoebox. My husband came up with a cool idea of using pictures cut out from magazines to personalize his gifts. In the picture above, he used regular wrapping paper, covered with tissue paper, foil and a picture of a belt he found in the paper. I'm thinking of reusing calendar pages, magazine posters ( I love maps- great for travel gifts) and some fabric. Other interesting ideas are putting a ring inside of a walnut shell or placing a Christmas sock over a wine bottle. How do you wrap your gifts?
