Wrapping paper

In about 30 minutes, Niece will turn 11. She's been here all day counting the hours until her big day, bouncing off the walls. We bought her a nice prezzie, but tonight I suddenly realised that we haven't got any wrapping paper!


But then I remembered the brown paper I got ages ago, thinking I'd use it for bookbinding, but never got round to it.

I started with a black outline:

Wrapping up the present, I almost like the back better than the front:

It was such an easy, fun project, I think I'll be doing a lot more of this!


  1. Wow - looks great! Just hope she will take the time to look at the wrapping paper ;)

  2. aww it turned out great,really funky pattern. I love making wrapping paper, stamped tissue paper is really effective too.
