Make Personal Wrapping Paper with Tracing Paper Leaf Wrappings:

Use tracing paper (or sandwich wrapping paper in a pinch, I did!) to create your own. Grayson used a round, green leaf to make this turtle wrapping paper. I like the way he drew his own ribbon, too!

Tracing Paper + Leaves #1: 
1) Begin with package that has been wrapped in white wrapping paper. Place leaf or leaves into pattern on top of this white package. If necessary, glue pieces into place to keep from moving.

2) Fold the tracing paper over the leaf pattern — this is like a second layer of wrapping paper. You are just wrapping the leafson to the first layer. (If you don’t have tracing paper that is large enough, sandwich wrapping paper works in a pinch, I’ve used it many times.)

3) Once the package is fully wrapped, draw over the leaf! Use your imagination and have fun! A personal package is so much more special, don’t you agree?

3) Finish wrapping the tracing paper over the leaf layer; placing seam in the back.

Add a ribbon and gift tag. Adding this simple touch makes a very special package of the season.
