I can't believe i didn't post this!
This could go in many categories - stenciling, reconstruction . . . but it fits nice here I think. These were all hand painted & stenciled on regular old meat wrapping paper. I also cut up some old Christmas cards and glued them all too. It is SUCH a nice end result, but, talk about TIME CONSUMING!!!! The year before this I had also bought white ceramic figurines and tied them with ribbon on the presents for the kids. Enjoy! Comments welcome!

And my precious baby sitting in the middle of them

That's so weird... I was just getting on craftster to get Christmas gift ideas!!! lol

Very neat, though. I definitely want to do something like these for my "big gifts" that I give this year. I'll probably be heartbroken though-- I'm always sad when people ruin the bows to open their presents.  Cheesy

Oh, and your baby is ADORABLE!!!!

I don't have sewing skills-- I glue paper to paper!

I love this! This is how I wrap my Xmas gifts too.  Usually I'll buy a small ornament specific to the person giving the gift, ie. a carpenter Santa for my uncle who is an amazing woodworker.  It is so time consuming but everyone really appreciates it, and everyone asks me to wrap their gifts for them. Great job!
