Papercrafting Projects using my Stash and Upcycling





I remember the days when I kept a well stocked drawer of wrapping paper and ribbons. I really didn't like gift bags, I preferred a wrapped gift.  I still enjoy wrapping gifts but admit that I'm more likely to do a gift bag particularly when it is an odd shape or didn't come in a box.  Since I don't do a lot of gifting, I don't think to pick up gift wrapping supplies, which leaves me scrambling to make my gifts presentable.


In this video I share a couple of gift bags I've made from store bags.  The main part of the video shows some cards I did for my husband for one of his trips.  I tuck them into the pockets of the clothes in his suitcase as a bit of a surprise.  It isn't that much of a surprise anymore as he has come to expect them but I still think he enjoys reaching into a pocket and pulling out a handmade card with a little note. They take hardly any time and are a great way to use up supplies particularly stamps and stickers.

Finally, I have a canvas I made a year ago for a baby shower.  It was prettier in person than the video.  I hope the still shots will help.

Here's the video:



Thanks for watching.  I hope you have a safe and fun holiday week.

  1. Great projects Lisa! You are so nice to give little notes to your husband when he goes away - that is such a sweet thing to do! And that baby canvas is just so pretty.
