Gift wrapping


A 5 year old pencil box gets a re-purposed life.... Oh, the pleasure of gift wrapping! The joy of designing the right package for the birthday person! In this case, the birthday girl is a talented copy-writer, hence the tag "The rain in Spain... is good for the brain".



I took a used pen box and wrapped it in simple kraft paper. I was dying to use this adorable umbrella shaped that I received for Christmas - Thank you, ANA!! And for the final touch, I added some rain (I used a white gel pen) and some yarn to make the puffy clouds.
The key to success: less is more. Stay monochrome!
