Creative Holidays: Recycled Wrapping
I admit, neither of these remotely references Christmas, but I like both wrappings nonetheless. I used poster sized photographs printed on matte bond paper that were tests from back when I had access to a large scale plotter-- one was they sky at dawn and the other just after dusk. The sunrise wrapping, with its pastel colors, probably should have adorned a baby shower gift... but I wrapped the baby gift in canvas (a nod to the father and sturdy wrapping since it needs to travel well) and used a leftover piece of bias tape from the buntings I made for the same couple. Since tape wouldn't stick to the canvas, I ended up sewing the package together using a curved upholstery needle.
