As, I read what Michelle was challenging us to do this month. I was like well- mmm all our wrapping paper has been recycled and gone. I do not use tags. Since, each person has a different wrapping paper and I am the only one that knows who has each wrapping paper until Christmas! This way no one can peek or guess what they have until Christmas!
So, I started brainstorming….I do have a little wrapping paper on the roll from each of the kids. I had been a pretty good girl last year and I got a paper making kit for Christmas from the ink spots! SMILE! I had no idea how this paper would turn out- wrapping paper is pretty thin. Plus, I am very new to paper making, but I gave it a go.
Here is the evidence: Each page is 8.5 x 5.5 inches
From here I got busy- I wanted to make them totally “green” using only recycled items. I used postage stamps, some of the ink spots homework, and some flowers that we dried from our family farm this summer.
I have two more to make – with Mr. Ink’s initial and the girl’s initial! Then Mr. Ink will make me a frame and we will hang them up in our front room! SMILE!
Thanks for the wonderful challenge, Michelle!
