25 Days of Gift Wrap: Day 1

My creative challenge this Christmas is to explore gift wrapping and post one of my own creations each day. I will tell you that I'm totally freaked out to commit to something like this! I love being consistently inconsistent--it's my artsy thing, you know. But this is a good kind of challenge and the double bonus is that all my gift wrapping will be completed before December 24th. *high fives to myself* (which really just looks like a clap, if you think about it. Don't think about it too much or you'll start giggling like I'm doing right now.)

The first installment showcases a gift topper created from layered felt circles, sewn together with a vintage sequin at the top. I used my cream wrapping paper, and a silverish sheer ribbon. The felt circles (and other shapes) are pretty inexpensive and available from vendors on etsy such as this one. You can find similar sequins from this company...and I tell you, they are fun to have around!


  1. Can't wait to see them all!

  2. Love this! My hat's off to you on this challenge, thanks for inspiring us all!

  3. Beautiful! What a cool choice to go neutral with this one. I write a blog about gift wrapping and it's so fun for me to see what others come up with - best of luck on your challenge!
