I love, love, love both of the World Market wrapping papers (see here and here) my mom used for my birthday gifts back in April so much, I just couldn’t bear to throw the pieces away after I opened those presents. My mom suggested I save it for some card making (she grossly underestimates her crafty genius), so I decided to do just that…for her birthday! As a nice little surprise, I also discovered some of the paper was the perfect size for her birthday gift, so a little recycling was most definitely in order.
P.S. Did you notice my plants from this post are still alive (and growing)?! I’m so surprised, I don’t even know what to do with myself.
I also got a chance to play around with those calligraphy pens a bit more…
Now that I see all this fun potential, I’ll definitely be holding onto more beautiful wrapping paper in the future — even if it means opening gifts with a tad bit less gusto. 🙂 Thanks for the great idea, Mom!
That’s a wrap on this week. Is anyone planning to create something beautiful and/or tasty this weekend? Share your ideas in the comments below!
