As promised, here is at least one great idea for using those sheets of water color patterns you and/or the kids have created — watercolor gift wrap! I grabbed a sheet that I had painted to quickly wrap a little handmade gift, and just fell in love with the results! I didn't really have time to find the perfect gift topper for this little package, but in retrospect I think I'd top it with something crafty as well, like a newsprint flower of some kind, or something created from twine or raffia.
If your gift is larger, carefully tape your pages together from the back, and you could even cover the seams with washi tape on the front. In any case, don't labor over it too too much as the present will after all be opened!
Wondering what was actually inside this little package?Stay tuned!
