$10 and an Hour - Gift for the BOOKWORM
20 December 2009
It is great if you can match the packaging to the gift. For the bookworm, I chose The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society found at the grocery store! OK, ok, so I went over budget by 50 cents with this one as well, but based on reviews I know this will be a gift well loved. I had some left over map & photograph scrap paper that I used to make a bookmark, the other side was plain red, so I printed a Christmas message to serve as the tag as well. I wanted to use something vintagey, so I went with a red, gold, and green poinsettia tissue paper to wrap and finished it off with an off white and gold wired bow. I tied the bow, then used a marker to roll up the ends of the bow, slid them off and pulled them out a little to create the curly ends.
