Funny Father's Day Gift Wrap Tutorial

If you've clicked onto this post in hope of elevating your already gorgeously wrapped packages to new, sparkly heights, I'd better warn you that this is an idea for people like me, with no gift wrapping skills whatsoever. The expensive paper, the darn tape that sticks where it doesn't belong. I just don't see the point! You can find an example of my mad anti-wrapping skills here: Thrifty Cloche Decorating.

To my fellow anti-wrappers, I say that if you're going to embrace the anti-gift wrap lifestyle, you may as well go all out. My hatred of creating fancy packages has evolved over time into something downright fun. If you were Sexy Nerd, this is what you would wake to find on Christmas morning:

Oooh! Fancy, right?

 Ta da!

 Why, yes, that is an old tag from an old gift dangling from that old ribbon. Whyever do you ask?

And bubble wrap! Beautimous.

I've made a joke out of my trouble wrapping gifts. In addition to all the scrappy-looking presents I *try* to make look decent, I create 1 ridiculously, intentionally ugly gift, wrapped with just about everything. Tape random bits of scrap papers and tie it with an assortment of leftover, reused bows. If you have some Elmer's Glue, a sticky handprint would be right at home on this. You can even sprinkle glitter on it afterward, though I have to say that wouldn't be quite keeping with the anti-wrapping lifestyle. Too much effort.

Nothing says "Happy Father's Day" like a mismatched, mystery present. Just imagine the look on your dad's face when you surprise him with this!

  3. That is a great idea for wrapping dad's gift! My hubby's family wraps duct tape around and around the wrapping paper. Makes for interesting un-wrapping! (visiting from Tatertots and Jello)
