It was the baptism of my friend’s second daughter. I already had a gift but the place where I bought my gift did not sell gift wrapping paper or gift boxes. Good thing, it was near a fabric store so I bought 2 meters of ribbon there for P4.00/meter.
I decided to create a customized wrapping paper by printing the baby’s name on a colored typewriting paper. I found few pieces in my files. I originally decided to use plain white bond paper but changed my mind when I found specialty paper with a light pink tint.
I typed the baby’s name repeatedly and printed it on the paper.
The yellow tape caught my attention. Probably because it is the only yellow in the batch.
Hmm, I think I ruined my gift design. Ha! The party was for the baby so I hope the whimsical tape was understandable. I also realized that I forgot to put my name on the gift. I hope my friend was able to figure out that the gift was from me.
The giveaway during the party was a cupcake.
Not a real cupcake though. It is a hand towel that is shaped into a cupcake. Cute. I don’t think I will ever use that hand towel. I don’t want to ruin the design. 😀
There are other ways of wrapping gifts. Start collecting the comics pages of the newspaper or colorful pages from a magazine. Christmas is near!
Here are some ideas from Pinterest.
