Creative Gift Wrapping

My older brother is a little hard to shop for, but I know he loves book stores so I used some of my MyPoints points and got him a Borders gift card. He also collects Snoopy items, so I paired a cute little Snoopy with the gift card. Wrapping something like this is a pain, which is why I thought I would get a little creative:DSCN4585

That’s right…Snoopy in a can! All you need is a hot cocoa canister (empty and gently wiped out with a wet cloth), the item to be wrapped, festive wrapping paper and Mod Podge.

Cut your wrapping paper to the size of the canister and the lid.DSCN4576

Spread a thin coat of Mod Podge on the lid and canister and spread the wrapping paper over it, smoothing out and wrinkles and air bubbles. Let dry.DSCN4577

Stick your gift inside…close the lid with an ornament hanging out…and you’ve got a pretty cute little gift that no one will be able to guess.DSCN4587

Have one of the cutest nephews in the world present it at Christmas time :). This would also be perfect for goodie containers to be given to friends and family.
