It rather denotes a lack of courage."

Rustic Wrapping

Have you been checking out all the creations that have been posted through out the day?
Some wonderful projects and ideas to try!

If you just happened to stop by, head back here to start from the beginning of Create It-Green's very first Blog Hop.
Don't miss out on some wonderful Green tips and Ideas for making this Holiday Season a little more Earth friendly.
Also, lets not forget all the wonderful prizes to be had.

My next project to show you, is just a fast and easy wrapping, for those last minute gifts when you are running out of traditional wrapping paper.

I also like to wrap empty boxes this way to place around the house.
Fits right in to my style of holiday decorating.

Using a empty cigar box as my base, brown paper grocery bag and natural jute twine for my Ribbon and wrappings.
Creating a Rustic Snowflake out of thin sticks cut to size, hot glued together and puffy paint for a touch of snow.
Embellishing with a Crystal brad for some bling and a chipboard greeting from my supplies.


And you are done..Eco-friendly, and festive for the season.

See you again later on...don't forget to be eligible for my prize draw...just drop a comment on any of the projects I post today and your name will go in the draw :)
Have fun!

Using the brown paper shopping bag to wrap the gift reminds me of all the school years of turning them into bookcovers!!! They are fun for kids to decorate to make their own wrapping paper!! TFS

Happy Holidays!
