Keeping the wrapping-made-personal theme going, I copied the initial idea from Martha, but with my own twist.
Here's how I did it.
For the red one - Step 1: Wrap your gift as usual and then wrap matching yarn around it in whatever style you want. Get some ideas here from Martha.
Step 2: Trace the letter you need, in this case an N, on scrapbooking paper. Cut it out and glue it to cardstock. Then cut it out again. The cardstock keeps the letter from curling.
Step 3: Tie it onto the package, and you're done!
For the brown package - Step 1: Wrap the gift, and then use white ribbon or white wrapping paper to create a ban around the package.
Step 2: Trace and cut out whatever letter you need. You could also do a whole name if you wanted. Then tape or glue the letter to the package.
Have you done any fun wrapping this year? I'd love to hear about it!
