I finished my Christmas present sewing yesterday and tried to put my mind around boxing and wrapping. I no longer care for traditional wrapping paper and purchased gift boxes (such a waste). So this morning I grabbed some cereal and cracker boxes, some ribbon remnants from Michael's floral department, and some tissue paper I saved from a recent shopping spree.
I'm please with the result. I think these look interesting and scream "Green Christmas". I found a tutorial for turning a cereal box into a gift box here. Once I got the hang of it they went pretty fast. Now I'm off to find some shipping boxes to recycle!
