Make Your Own Gift Wrap

Summer, you’ve got to love it. There’s warm weather, barbecues and birthday parties, lots of birthday parties. I’m always needing to buy yet another supply of wrapping paper but with everybody cutting back on spending, a person has to turn up their inner creativity to find ways to economize. I decided to make my own wrapping paper!

I have more computer printer paper than I know what to do with and a large collection of bingo dabbers. During the week I work with young children at a day-care centre, and they were more than willing to offer their help. Before I knew it, I had a large supply of gift wrap.

For interesting pattern changes, try misting your wrapped presents with a spray bottle. The colours will spread into one another and look fantastic, and the kids will love it too.
