SNOWFLAKE PRESENT EMBELLISHMENT
As I tried going "green" and not purchasing any new wrapping paper, I used mailing envelopes and old magazines to wrap presents and to embellish some of them I cut out snowflakes and attached them to the "wrapped" presents and the names written in marker and attached to the present with tape or a glue stick.
Above is a white mailing envelope embellished with a tan mailing envelope with the bubble side out
This present was wrapped in a magazine page, as is the snowflake that turned out sort of a honeycomb/rib cage effect.
You could use any snowflake design you would like, but sometimes it is more fun to fold up the paper, make cuts and see what you create.
