I love to bless people with little gifts that say “I know you”. Gifts definitely speak the language of love. I think we all agree that gifts are great, but that doesn’t mean that you care about the wrapping. Fair enough..but there are people who do—and I happen to be one of those people. I simply can’t help being thrilled when something looks too good to open! That’s why I thought I’d do a monthly gift wrapping idea on the blog.
Why monthly? Well, let me tell you about my latest epiphany:
Christmas has a sneaky way of appearing on my calendar every year in December, and before I can spell Charitable backwards, I realize that need to win the lottery in order to stay above water! Sadly, I wasn’t able to bless all the people that I love this year, and that’s just a huge bummer. So this year I’ll tackle the problem by doing my Christmas shopping all year-round (hence the monthly gift wrapping post). Voila! I’ll be finished by December! Maybe I can even be one of those people who offer a sympathetic look to the stressed out crowd. We’ll see;)
1) Ordinary brown paper
I used my gel pens for the background because they are super easy to work with. Then I used acrylic paint for the dots. You simply apply the dots with a toothpick.
And there ya go! Simple. Need ideas? Come back for more!
