Wrap It Up: Put Your Budding Artist's Work to Good Use

Wrap It Up: Put Your Budding Artist's Work to Good Use

My daughter's backpack is always filled to the brim with paintings, pictures, and doodles that I can't bring myself to toss. Rather than tuck them away to collect dust, I'm putting them to good use this holiday season — let's face it, we can only keep so many! We're using her lil masterpieces — including completed coloring book pages — to wrap small gifts. Tucking the artwork around books, videos, and boxes, we'll showcase her artistic talents for all to enjoy! We also added a bit of sparkle by wrapping bows around the goodies with a steady hand and a glitter glue pen. While this homemade paper costs pennies, the pictures are priceless!

Okay, cute, but if I got this I wouldn't know if it was okay to rip the paper, and then am I supposed to save it? I don't know.
