free, creative wrapping

Would you throw a $10 note in the bin? No? Neither would I.

Short on time and money on the weekend, we were faced with gift-wrapping and nothing suitable for twin Star Wars fans.

So we made this fun gift wrap with newspaper. It was a challenge to find pages that weren’t confronting in some way! We used one page of the form guide and some business pages :)

I snipped a couple of ends from palm fronds and with crayons, rubbed some pretty tropical patterns all over. Tied off with hemp twine and decorated with some pretty flowers from the garden. How CHARMING! :)

The girls made a card from an A5 art journal page folded in half. Cute and more keep-sakey than a store-bought card :)
