This year our not so little any more Ela turned 7!
For this occasion I usually make my own handmade gift wrap 🙂
I choose Alice in Wonderland.
I bought a tote bag in Pound store for Ela the other day which inspired my project.
She loved the movie and a story book too so it did seems to be the right choice.
I wanted something simple with use of only few colours.
There’s few tags and patterns you can print out on few standard A4 cards and connect for a bigger size.
Simply click the LINKS below images for printing.
For the biggest wrapping I made a simple chess board pattern using
– foam sheet
– wooden building block
– black acrylic paint
I simply glued a square piece of foam sheet on to a block to make a stamp.
Pattern is not ideal, but hey it’s hand made 🙂
Some gifts I wrapped in brown paper…
and hand drew some vintage keys and a key hole on.
I packed it all into Alice tote bag.
