I am always recycling "old" stuff so this challenge was right up my alley. I made a Christmas wrapping out of an old box for underwear. LOL, mens underwear LOL!

I have used the fabby paperpad from Graphic 45, this paper is so beautifull and you can do so much with it...I have played with Vintage Photo and Aged Mahogany and worked with The Tim's Odds and Ends.

The front is a lot of tiny little images glued all together and placed on a square wooden piece. It is worked on with Distress Crackle Paint. I just love the crackle paints it gives such a great look on your project.....yesss I am addicted, I admit it......LOL....

I have placed a spacer in the middle, or should I say two give it this look....It just looks like a star doesn't it?

The lace is from my own stash and was made into a bow. I have placed a bow on both sides of the Wrapping.

Oke here is the front of my finished Recycled project, I hope you like it.....I know I do and I think I have a pretty good idea who is going to get this wrapping with a present inside offcourse...hehehe.....

  2. Terry, WOW what a difference a little paper, some inks and lacy ribbon can do! Of course, you have to have that creative eye to put it all together and you DO! Your altered Christmas packaging is beautiful! The before and after is DRAMATIC! Love your piece. <3 Candy
