I was faced with the dilemma the other day of not having any wrapping paper for the purse I had made for my sister-in-law. I had found some Christmas paper and had thought of just turning it to the "wrong" side and doing something creative that way. But then I remembered that my daughter LOVES tape and had used all the tape that I owned... even the duct tape!!
But I had tissue paper and this old shoe box... So I took the purple tissue paper and just glued it to the box. I used 2 layers so you wouldn't be able to see the box design. I then found these old cut out letters I had that were also purple and spelled her name on the top. I think it came out pretty cute!
