A Pretty Package

Who needs wrapping paper?
When you can use a dictionary page or two...

Some washi tape...

A tag cut from an old greeting card...

And a pretty little bow fashioned 
from old curtain fabric...

Pretty as a picture, re-cycled and

  1. I saved the envelope and wrapping from my vintage vocab cards because it was too pretty to toss ... thank you for celebrating the small things :)

  2. Perfect! So many ways to do this...with just things around the house. Beautiful!

  3. Such beautiful wrapping! Beats regular giftwrap hands down!

  4. Great idea! I always hate buying wrapping paper - so much money for something to get torn up and thrown away and your version looks so much prettier!

  5. Love the wrapping - I am such a visual learner.......did you use many pages to wrap, did you take it to a copy store and have larger sheets make???? I'm sorry, I really like this and would like to use it somtime.

    1. Hi Mary Ellen... No I didn't copy it. My dictionary pages were about 5x7. I glued 3 together side by side and it was enough to wrap this box of note cards. You can trim the edges on a page, then use a glue stick to glue them together to make a sheet as large as you need :)
      Have fun!
