Hand-stamped wrapping paper.
September is a month of birthdays for us. I'm a little behind, but have been trying to catch up this week. I selected a few small things to send to a faraway friend before realizing I somehow have no wrapping paper, bags, or boxes in this house (a rare thing!).
Yesterday everyone was calm enough to allow me a tiny sliver of time to create-and I used it to get on the floor with some pieces of plain brown packing paper, a pencil eraser, and a black ink pad.
So simple, fun, and addicting! If I had been able to locate my exacto I could've changed things up by cutting the eraser into a triangle or something similar. What about you? Have you ever improvised when it comes to wrapping gifts?
