STEP 1-

Begin by selecting & tearing out pages from your magazines- make it personal by choosing unique pages/photographs/artwork/anything that relate to the interests of or remind you of the receiver of this gift.IMG_9942

STEP 2-

Tape the edges of the magazine pages together from the back/inside of the paper. Make one giant sheet of wrapping paper by taping several pages together.IMG_9953

STEP 3-

Make sure you position the box on the paper so that you have your desired look on the front of the box & have plenty of room on either side to wrap neatly.IMG_9956
