Make It Work - Gift Wrap

This weekend I had a gift to wrap for a friend's daughter.  I searched my house but realized we were completely out of wrapping paper.  I couldn't stand the idea of her getting a gift in a Target shopping bag so I went into my craft room to come up with something fun to wrap her gift in.
I ended up with a section of newspaper found in our kindling box, craft buttons, baker's twine, and a scrap of lace trim.  It was fun to experiment with the supplies until I found something I was happy with.  This is the final product...
I plan to treat my gift wrap more like a craft project from now on.  It's more personal and bonus, it's cheaper.

  7. love it and so true! i often wrap my gifts in unusual material--vintage fabric from the thrift store, magazines, or, my favorite, an old roll of piano paper i found in the basement of our little cottage when we moved in. free and unique:) your project turned out beautifully!
