This is what about 3/4 of our Christmas presents to others look like this year. I saved all of Charlotte's paintings from over the summer and used them to wrap up presents. It started out as a green initiative since it seems so wasteful to just throw away all of that paper (well, recycle), but I'm really happy with the results. It's so sweet and personal that everyone gets a little piece of her artwork, plus the addition of the baker's twine and the handmade gift tags (cardstock, red paint, and glitter glue) give them the perfect Christmas touch. My initial inspiration came from Pinterest, obviously.
And when I ran out of paintings, I still used the initial gift tags, which I'm in love with.
