It’s almost time to start shopping for that big holiday that sneaks up on me very year. I actually made a note in July to start thinking about gifts to buy and decorating to plan. Want to know what I did with the note?
Moved it to August!
Want to know what I’ll do with it next week?
You guessed it, move it to September!
Four more times moving that note and I’ll be panicked and running about with my head spinning. Just like every year.
I did need to wrap a gift for a sweet friend last week. Wanting it to be unique and then looking at the gift wrapping supplies I have, ugh! This was the best leftover gift box I could find. You know the one with tape stuck with a piece of Christmas paper that was left from all the tearing and ripping.
A gift wrapping station in the cabin would be incredible. But the dining room table with have to do.
I cut burlap to the size of the gift box while the box was folded flat. The top had about a quarter of an inch around all four sides. After gluing I pulled the extra on the top sides for a fringe effect. 🙂
Here’s the sticky. I didn’t take a photo because I didn’t want to get stick to my camera. :/ I used the stray mount glue in a can to stick the burlap to the top and bottom.
I could see myself doing that!
A simple tip when you need a small amount of glue or paint and don’t what to mess with a paint tray. Use a small piece of foil. Toss when you’re done.
Hum! Thinking about doing some more boxes!
I can wait till next month! 🙂
