It's not always easy wrapping a grad gift or a dad gift. Masculine wrappings often leave much to be desired. Usually it comes down to a gift bag festooned with fishing tackle or striped wrapping paper. The options are normally pretty limited.
Have I got a solution for you! Enter your new best friend... old maps.
You can simply wrap a box with a map which would be perfectly acceptable, or you can kick it up a notch by creating your very own customized gift bag.
All you need is:
- a blank bag
- a map
- a strip of cardstock in a complimentary colour
- 2 brads to fasten the pinwheel centres
I used this template for the pinwheels.
Cut on the lines. Punch holes on the dots. Fold the dots to the middle & fasten with a brad.
How great are these pinwheels? They add a little fun touch to what could be a stuffy-looking gift.
They may not, however, be for everyone. Totally cool. Just leave them off & do the strips of map paper on the sides of the bag.
My work here is done. ;)
