A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Unique Gift Wrapping...

Over the weekend we went to a 50th birthday party.  
Gag gifts were encouraged.  
(Don't worry - we got a nice gift too.)  Our gag gift had 
to do with an old dot matrix printer that the birthday boy 
still uses.  So... we wrapped it in some of the printer 
generated paper.  Then I went to my 'stash' drawers...
 A bit of wide ric rac, a little hammer doo dad, some jute 
(actually a lantern wick)...
...and a homemade tag.  I keep lots of doo dads on hand.
They make great gift ornaments.  Took all of 2 minutes.

Fun! I've recently discovered the laughs with 50th birthday parties...although I may not have my own party for awhile. LOL!

That is so fun!! I love the little hammer. I can't believe that he still uses that kind of printer!! I guess if it works for you don't change it. :)
