My New Years resolution for 2013 was to write for Hello Giggles. The year went by and I always talked about content ideas, but never wrote anything up. Then with only 4 weeks till the end of 2013, I got to work! Creating this simple DIY Holiday Wrapping Paper Pictorial. I submitted the article to Hello Giggles twice, even tweeted at the editor, yet never received a response. I think it’s safe to say that they will not be publishing my article. And thus I shall post it here! It’d ย be ridiculous to let a perfectly good DIY post go to waste.

Here is my article I wrote for Hello Giggles on how to make your own DIY Holiday Gift Wrap. HAPPY HOLIDAYS โค

I understand you bring your own bags to the grocery store on a fairly consistent basis. But you needed Almond Milk, Kale Chips, and a bushel of Organic Bananas that one day when your totes were at home. Now is the perfect time to turn those brown bags into adorable Holiday Wrapping paper!

You donโ€™t have to be artistically talented to create your own eco-friendly and stylish wrapping paper. Painting all the patterns with my non-dominate hand, I want to show how ANYONE with mild hand eye coordination could create cute โ€œmade with loveโ€ Holiday Wrapping Paper.

Beauty is in the imperfections right? The key to this DIY is to NOT be overly critical of your execution.ย  Inconsistencies become a part of the look.

All Wrapped Up
