Christmas Wraps

I got too busy with the Holidays so I'm posting these just now. It's my first time to post in the comm and I'm sharing the attempts I did at Christmas wrapping :)

No, this is not a gift bag but I did recycle a gift bag and used it as a gift wrapper. I thought of wrapping the box milk carton-style then just added the string for a handle.

These are three identical jars with a box each. I wrapped them all in the same glossy wrapping paper and gathered them together with ribbon.

This one is a personal favorite. I used two leaves from an old Cosmopolitan issue (both pages were of Lacoste shoes), pasted them together to have a bigger piece and folded them envelope-style so I could put a small purse in.

Old paper towel tubes make great gift boxes. The paper I used came from Christmas issues of old magazines and I opted to use red magazine pages so they would go well with the gold ribbon.

These are two books I wrapped individually using the same paper type. I placed the smaller one on top of the bigger one then tied them together with ribbon. As you can see, I still have room for improvement on bowmaking.

I love the paper towel idea! I can't believe I've never thought of it.
I am now going to save paper towel rolls!

That rocks the socks!
