It’s a wrap – christmas 2015


Xmas1I took the easy way out of christmas wrapping this year (well, easier than my usual efforts). I realised I had way too many small things  to wrap, and with a family that is growing in numbers every year – my present list was bigger than ever (but let’s be honest, shopping for gifts is half the fun of Christmas, really). As time is also precious these days,  as is the want to keep within budget – I decided to buy some nice kraft paperbags in bulk from my local Kent Paper store (I spent around $28.00 for 40 bags).

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetThe next step was easy, I simply used a small roller and acrylic paint in a range of pastel colours to create thick stripes on each bag. I then lined each bag with some tissue paper, placed the present/s inside and concealed each bag with thin cotton rope and white tags I picked up at my local $2 shop.

Xmas2 Xmas3The total cost of the project was $50.00. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out – and the best bit, the task was over and done with in a few hours.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks for another year of checking in to Sunday Collector. It’s coming up for it’s 6th birthday half way in to next year, which kind of blows my mind. Time sure does go fast. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Christmas break, and I’ll see you on the flip side!
