I love wrapping gifts with stuff I already have around my house. This means I’ll grab old grocery sacks, shopping bags, butcher paper and in this case, sketch-pad paper, and do what I can with it. Geometric shapes are so hot right now, and I really wanted to use them in my holiday wrapping…so this is what I came up with!
It’s super easy to do and for some reason oddly therapeutic. To start you’ll need something to wrap with, such as newspaper, sketch paper or old shopping bags. I’ll be showing you how to do it with these gift tags I’ve created:
Start by pouring some glue in a cup, and then add an equal amount of water. Stir it up!
Wait until the paper is dry to touch. Then cut out your tags, or wrap up your gifts!
Do not, I repeat DO NOT be afraid to add large pom poms and small plastic animals that you have painted, glittered, and then drilled holes in (what, like you don’t have those laying around too?)
Then boom! I guarantee you’ll have the flashiest, most festive wrapping on your block! Unless of course you live on my block…in which case you’ll have to glitter into the wee hours of the night to keep up!
Hope you enjoy!
