There are a million things to love about Christmas: friends and family, gingerbread and eggnog, giving and getting gifts, and so much more! But as much as I love this holiday, there are a couple of things that just don't make sense.
My biggest beef? Gift wrapping! The crafter in me acknowledges the beauty of
a perfectly wrapped present with pretty paper and big bows, but my thrifty side
saddens a little at the thought of spending money on something that only has a
few moments in the sun before heading straight to the landfill.
So, this year, I saved my wrapping budget and got a little creative— with
Klutz, of course!
I dug out my copies of Stencil Art and Twirled Paper and set to work creating
my very own wrapping paper. With a dab of ink here and a curl of paper there, my
wrapped gifts look so pretty that my friends will never know I only got down to wrapping on the eve of the big day!
Looking for more Klutz fun to get you through the winter break? In Christmases
past, I made a pretty faux snow globe and Velvet Art Christmas cards, I planned my holiday wardrobe with Paper Fashions, and I decked out my tree three ways. There's tons
of Klutz fun to be had before 2013 comes to an end, so get busy!
Wishing you the craftiest of Christmases and looking forward to another year
of creating wonderful things, being good, and having fun!
