Holiday hustle and bustle cleaned out your giftwrap stash? Try paper bows on paper maché boxes. Holly jolly hint: For the fringed bow, sandwich cardstock between two strips of patterned paper, and cut slits almost all the way down. Form the base into a ring, and adhere it to a circle of paper. Continue until your bow is as full as you like.
AMAZING idea for using photocopies (the hand-held FLIP PAL would be awesome here!) for Gift Wrap! Branch out from ordinary Christmas wrapping papers and embrace the look of fabric. Make color copies of a favorite fabric and print onto paper. Standard-size printouts on 8-1/2x11-inch paper work great for smaller packages. Utilize a local copy shop to enlarge and scale your fabric for bigger gifts.
