Wrap it Up

We had a birthday party to go to and I wanted to make the present prettier than my usual wrap. So I took an old shoe box and laid out the paper.

I cut the paper to fit the box and used spray adhesive rather than tape to secure the paper to the box. Then I used the reverse paper (white and black rather than black and white) on the inside to make the contrast pop.

I added a couple of ribbons in contrasting colors to keep with my theme of opposites.

I think it turned out pretty and these were leftover from a previous party so it was a sustainable gift wrap.

This is fun. I do stuff like this as well and it's just fun, fun, fun.
