Currently Crafting: Origami Dino Giftwrap
I found these Dymo labels for .99cents at Goodwill. I knew they were some type of tape for a label maker but the package doesn't give a lot of info. After a quick Internet search, I think they are 3D embossing tapes. They are really thick and vibrant.
Their thickness is perfect for easily cutting triangles and they are adhesive so - bam! Easy gift wrap in seconds.
I think I've found my new go-to male gift wrap. Or female gift wrap, for that matter. You could cover half a gift in triangles - that would look awesome! I might do that... [half an hour later]...
Okay, I did it. I put the post on hold to add more triangles. And what did I get? An origami dinosaur.
Now who wouldn't want an origami dinosaur on their present? That's what I thought. :) See, this is how crafting works. You start with a smidgen of an idea and let it run free. I mean, you can start with a full idea and that is fun, too. But it is so relaxing to just let the creativity come. What kind of crafting do you prefer? Planned or spontaneous?
