It is back to back days for me on the SRM blog! Today I have a couple "out of the box" gift wrap ideas to share. :)
The first is a fun birthday GC holder!
I backed the embroidery hoop with cardstock. I then cut 2 circles of different patterned paper for the front. I cut them in half and adhered the zipper to the bottom half and then cut the top part to fit and adhered that to the zipper.
I decorated it with the Birthday We've Got your Border set and some sentiments from the Birthday Stickers By The Dozen and a double bow of twine from the Twinery. I backed the top half of the circle with cardstock to make it somewhat heavy. This is so the top will stay flat against the hoop without any adhesive.
I then applied permanent adhesive to the bottom circle and adhered it to the hoop. The zipper opens to reveal the GC inside. :)
My second "out of the box" project, is well...a box. :)
I spray painted a covered paper mache' heart shaped box with some glitter paint (awesome stuff!). I added the pretty polka dot scalloped border from the Valentine We've Got Your Border set to the outside of the top. I added some ribbon, another border sticker and the scalloped circles with a heart sticker on top.
The wand was left over from a previous craft project so I thought it would be fun to add to this box.
I added some borders to the ribbons for some color and texture.
Next time you have to wrap a gift look no further than your crafting supplies! :)
Happy Wednesday and Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!
