Wreck This Journal: Wrap something with this page.

Standard

Eeeeeeee, presents!!!!!!!!!

This page puzzled me for a while…

Wrap something with this page.

Wrap something with this page.

I thought about it until my head hurt, and then decided to just go for it.  I ripped out the page, and started colouring it.  I wanted to make it a bit fancy, so I used glitter crayons to colour stripes.  I have included a couple of extra pictures below to show the effect of the glitter crayons – the give a very nice shiny effect, and they have actual glitter in – GENIUS!!!!!

Anyway, once my page was coloured, I started looking for something to wrap.  This involved me wandering around the house and literally looking for something small that I wouldn’t miss.  I’m one of these annoying people who throws things out if I don’t need/want them, so this was a difficult task!

Eventually I decided on the thing to wrap.  It was a keyring that I had bought for a friend that I no longer speak to.  It wasn’t appropriate to give as a gift, but I didn’t want to throw it away, so I’d kept it in a drawer.  I don’t know why, because like I said above, I normally am pretty good at thowing out unneccessary junk!

So, I wrapped the keyring in tissue paper to bulk it out a bit and make it easier to wrap, and then wrapped it in the page, adding some curly-wurly ribbon for that final touch!

I wanted to be able to put this page back into my WTJ, so I used coloured paper to create a new ‘page’.  I have done this for all instructions which require me to remove a page, so that I can put everything back in where it belongs.  Because I’m like that 🙂

So, in this case, I stuck the present on to this bright yellow page, wrote on the instruction and added some present stickers.

My WTJ is pretty bulky now – there’s no chance of carrying it everywhere with me anymore, my handbag just isn’t big enough!!
