Happy Monday, y'all!
I just wanted to share a pretty little present I wrapped up at a creative wrapping presentation here in town.
So, I have been slightly obsessed with old book pages since I found a few old German books at a flea market a couple years ago. I cut up some of the pages and used them in a giant mural my one semester as an art student. I'm always looking for ideas to use book pages in decorating, so I hit the jackpot when I ran across this post by The Nester on Pinterest.
She threw a "book party" and for under $30, turned their home into an Anthropolie-esque wonderland. It was absolutely gorgeous. This one is my favorite.
Isn't that lovely! Anyhow, I decided to follow suite in the thrifty department and did my entire presentation using everything Dollar Store. I got giant books and ripped out the pages ( I mean, if they're at the Dollar Store, they can't possibly be worth reading, so I didn't feel so bad.) I also bought dictionaries and a thesaurus, doilies, jute and kraft paper, and feathers, and this is what I came up with:
Why shouldn't the wrapping be as special as the gift? If you have any wrapping ideas, feel free to share!
