I love the whole idea of 'REPURPOSING' items and for 2011 I plan to do a lot of it. So to start my quest, I went to The Goodwill and found this treasure.
A 1975 Atlas.
I was so excited and it was only $1 - yay!
My mind was racing with all the fun stuff I could do with the pages.
One of the first ideas I had for the paper was to wrap Christmas presents in it. And that's just what I did! I think it turned out so cute and it was a hit with all those who received a gift wrapped in it. Everyone was facinated by the "State" they got - it was cute.
The ribbon I received for free and I was able to wrap all my presents using only the atlas - so I only spent $1 on gift wrap! - so cool, I love it...
