I decided to try something a little bit different with gift wrapping this year. First, I used leftover fabric scraps from the scarf project and tied them around most of our gifts. They weren’t Christmas colors, so they didn’t really match, but I sort of liked the homey, mismatched look.
The next wrapping project was actually done by 65 middle schoolers that I happen to love. We’re studying “stuff” right now in school, and as part of a lesson on the distribution process, the kids made these bows in an assembly line. The great thing is that they’re made from old magazines, which means you could coordinate them to any style or color scheme you had in mind.
