MIA and Unique Gift Wrap

I know, I know I did no posting in the month of Oct.  Bad, bad, blogger.  I could come up with a million excuses but basically life just got ahead of me.  So I am back, full of fun ideas for the upcoming Christmas season and lots of just plain fun stuff!!

Tomorrow, the hubby and I are headed to a wedding.  I wanted to do a unique gift wrap.  Something memorable, something different.

So.........I took some brown craft paper and wrapped the 2 boxes.  I then taped the boxes together using packing tape.  I went to Hobby Lobby and using a 40% off coupon, I purchased a fun ribbon.  I then tied the ribbon around the 2 boxes and made a bow.  Also, at Hobby Lobby, a purchased a wood "S" , the new couples monogram.  I painted the back of the "S" black and covered the front with old dictionary pages using mod podge.  I then used walnut distress ink to give it more of a distressed look.  I then put a sawtooth hanger on the back and using twine tied it to the ribbon.  Voila, a unique gift wrap that will be as memorable as the present!!!

What is in the present you may ask? I will reveal that later after the wedding. We don't want to spoil the surprise!!!
