I have all kinds of ideas to make our packages pretty. My tree will be covered with silver, black, and lots of shiny metallic/mirrored ornaments that we made last year. I worried about how the organic looking brown paper would look with a more glitzy tree, but I think if I add black, white and silver elements to our packages, it will mesh just fine.
For smaller gifts, I will be using either brown paper lunch sacks or pages from a magazine. Those photos in magazines are taking by some of the most talented photographers out there, so why not use them as beautiful gift wrap?
I plan on putting my 3 little artists to work, I can't wait to see what they come up with! My oldest and I have already discussed some art ideas she wants to do. She wants to use black paint and make a stick tree with lots of twigs, then add silver little circles as leaves! Isn't that brilliant? She is so great. The other two I'm sure will get busy with their silver glitter glue, stamps, markers, and stickers.
It's gonna be fun!
