Wrapping Paper Masterpiece– Little Man Style

A couple of weeks ago, Little Man went to a birthday party for his friend Olive. I had wanted to make something handmade for her, but with everything that was going on in our lives around that time, it just wasn’t going to happen.

So I decided to add a personal touch with the wrapping paper. Plus it was a way to get Little Man more involved in the gift.

I extolled the benefits of using craft paper at Christmastime, and I’m still crazy about it. Here’s another great way to use and personalize craft paper for gifts.
