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  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 ❤

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 don’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 “made with love” Holiday Wrapping Paper.

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

All Wrapped Up
