Art As Wrapping Paper

My boys have gone hog wild for water color lately. With each masterpiece I ensure that they use both sides of the paper before moving on, yet I am still left with lots of colorful scraps headed for the recycle bin.

Except for these. They instead became the wrapping paper and birthday card for a little girl's birthday party this week. If you ask me, it's far more charming than anything one could find in a store.

How do you get creative with artwork?

My kids do this too! They also cut and paste pictures from christmas cards onto paper and use that for wrapping gifts. I love this creative way of reusing paper!

I know that I have been away from blogging for awhile so I am trying to catch up on my favorite blogs. Hope life has been treating you well!
