I LOVE wrapping papers. I think they are underrated. They could do wonders if you know exactly what to do with them besides wrapping gifts. Salute to the designers. Below are some of the pieces I did using 80cents wrapping papers & 20cents envelopes. If you do it yourself, these paper bags costs you almost next to nothing.

Whenever I go on a 'gift-hunt', I do not necessarily pick ones that are new or look good. I found these ceramic 'bekas telur' on a dusty shelf in a gloomy looking shop. They were not much to look at but I instantly knew with a little work they would turn out looking lovely. Click on below image for larger view.

after a couple of hours and multiple injuries to the fingers, cleaned and ready for next step

finally, matching ribbons to finish it off.
