creating inexpensive wall art: not so obvious sources 4

Gift wrap, gift bags, and gift boxes:

Some of the cutest, most fun designs are found on gift wrap, gift bags, and gift boxes. Gift wrap has to be handled carefully because it tends to be thin and tears easily but it can be glued (using a glue stick) to a stronger material or carefully decoupaged onto surfaces. Boxes and bags are a heavier weight and easier to work with.

Don’t limit yourself just to holiday designs, consider nursery, children’s, and floral designs.

This gift wrap could make cute and colorful wall art in a nursery.

Bottom line, if you see a design that really catches your attention…on card, wrap, bag, or box…save it. It’s a rather fun way to recycle…reuse…reutilize…
