I love to wrap packages and was delighted to find this and other clever ways to wrap them on the Care2 site.
Here are some of the ways I've wrapped gifts:
One of my favorite wrappers is a brown paper bag, turned inside out if it has a supermarket design on it and then embellished with anything - from fresh herbs to dried flowers to sea shells to feathers to raw wool. I use stamp pads to provide color and individual stamps for more design. I glue on handmade paper and have used African fabric and African buttons in the past. I use interesting post cards, things from newspapers or magazines, funny sayings, etc. The wrapping paper becomes a collage of sorts - primitive, childlike, but totally me.
All of my wrappings are 3 dimensional - flat designs are not my style as I don't actually understand 2 dimensional space.
Wrapping gifts is very meditative and I'm always surprised at the final result.
I also love it because it's very ecological.
