Two weekends ago I headed out to the Hamptons for my dear friend Christina’s bridal shower…its always nice to catch up with old friends isn’t it? Anyway, she’s a very eco-conscious gal, and on the invite, it was requested that we not bring wrapped gifts. (We didn’t have to bring gifts at all, but I like spoiling her) Since we couldn’t use giftwrap, and I just couldn’t bring myself to bring just the box, I had to come up with a way to jazz it up a bit, so I bought a couple of paint pens from the art store and went to town on the box! If I had more time, I probably would have colored in all the pattern to completely cover all the text, but I kinda like it like this too. I threw on a big green bow, and it was all set! Do you have any interesting ways of dressing up a gift without using giftwrap?
