I wanted to show you some wrapping I did using my used Trader Joe's holiday shopping bags. I had been admiring the illustrations on their bags and then I read this post by Merrilee of mermag and got very inspired to wrap my little presents using my old shopping bags. I decided to dress them up with a little tape and some twine. I was pretty happy with how they turned out, what do you think? If you live near a Trader Joe's you now have another excuse to head on over or save the bags from your recycle bin. I am sure there are some other nice paper grocery bags that could be used in this way. I think San Vicente Foods in Brentwood CA has nice striped bags...hmmm...can you think of any others?
I hope the rest of December includes some lovely moments for you all and that 2011 brings you joy. Thank you for taking time out of your days to visit me here. I appreciate each and every one of you.
Happy Holidays! xoxoleslie
