I like wrapping presents. Ok, that is a huge underestimating. I looooooooove wrapping presents. 😀 That is more interesting to me sometimes than the actual present hahahaha…
I love making something that is not – wrapping presents so from the outside they appear to be something that they are not. My bf knows the joy of that very well. :mr green: Two years ago for his b-day I have made/bought him a custom-made t-shirt and put it in cookie package and put everything so they seem to be not opened. The funny thing is, he was actually happy with getting cookies, but could not understand why I insisted that he opens them RIGHT NOW. 😀 This year, I’ve bought him a wallet and wanted to do the big box – small box thing, when you open big box and then small and smaller… I had a lot of luck and he accidentally left his old wallet at my place and I packed everything, the big box, the paper and decoration paper inside, smaller box and inside his old wallet. He was unwrapping the thing for 15 minutes (he likes to sloooooooowly unwrap, I’m more of a cut it all person 😀 )… The look on his face when he saw his old wallet after all the trouble and laughing was priceless. I said, ok, you don’t want that one and gave him the new wallet.
So, he is quite familiar with my little scams muahahaha 😛
Anyway back to the “do it myself” part featured in this post. This was a chocolate box I wanted to turn into my master piece. 😉 I knew what I wanted on it (japanese spring flower) and found a picture. Then I sketched the outlines and painted the whole thing as I wanted. For the box I knew tempera will be a difficult choice because the material is too smooth for it. But! I wanted that kind of uneven look, somewhere more white, somewhere more black. I always tend to take on challenges… When it starts to look difficult, I go in “bring it on” mode.
Ok, and for the bow/ribbon part I found easy tutorial and it came out good. It would be even better if the material of the ribbon was softer.
This was a present I packed for my friend, I call her Princess so the little box says “Princeza”. 😉 The box is btw from a dairy spread haha 😀
Anyway this is my little joy and I have fun with it… What about you, do you like it or hate it? Tell me ☺
