Wrapping it up



At work each year we do a “Secret Santa” where we are each tasked with buying one other person in the company a gift.  The company pays, but we have to go and get it.

This year one of the girls wanted a voucher from Kalahari.net – great idea, but boring to unwrap.  So I decided to get a bit creative.

Once I got over my reluctance to cut up a book, here is what I did:

1.       Found a book in my cupboard that I was NEVER going to read. Thankfully it had a beautiful red hard cover under the paper sleeve.

 

2.       Used my craft knife and metal ruler to cut holes in about ¾ the pages.

 

 

3.       Made a “card” out of one of the pieces of paper that I had cut out.

4.       Put the voucher in the hole in the book, and tied it up with a bit of string.

 

 

I am really happy with the way it turned out and think it is a pretty  way to wrap up a voucher for books.
