Here it is . . .

December 11th, 2007


Here’s my lovely or not-so-lovely (you decide) experiment with reusing catalog sheets for gift wrapping.

For larger gifts like this, it would make more sense to use a discarded map to avoid having to tape the pages together.

This gift was wrapped from Pottery Barn catalog pages and part of a Cellular South direct mail piece (the tree and “’tis the Season”).

My cat had great fun watching me do this. Give it a try with at least one gift this year.

    How beautiful!! And what a great idea! My cats always have fun watching me wrap gifts. They try to “help.”

    Pier One Imports has some nice catalog photos and I have a bunch of those around. Plus magazines. Oh-so-many magazines.

    Maybe I can wrap my nephew’s gifts in Maxim. Their mother would so appreciate that. LOL

    By the way, speaking of gifts: What do you put on them so you know who they are for?

    That’s right, you’ve been tagged. 🙂 (Never thought I’d find a transition, but that just had to be said. Sorry.) <3

    I just wanted to let everyone know that the gift recipient really loved the repurposed gift wrap. I think it might have inspired him to try it himself.
