Welcome Whimseybox part 2


Now, you ask, what did you make with the fun supplies I received in my Whimseybox?! Well, kind inquirer, I was rather inspired by the care Alicia put into the packaging Whimsey box. 'Tis the season for giving and gifting, and big portion of that fun comes in the wrapping. I chose to use the fabric paints to color the fabric, like a paint-by-numbers, and then use the fabric to wrap a gift. The fabric can be then reused by the recipient a million different ways, including wrapping another gift!

Tools and Materials:
Black and white fabric
Thin paint brush
DecoArt SoSoft fine glitter fabric paint
Water

Consider this the silent movie of DIYs. I'll let the photos do the talking.




Topped off with a glittery pompom from the Lion Brand/ Martha Stewart Crafts eyelash yarn. No Christmas tree here yet (late, I know!) so I'll have to put this present under a potted plant instead.

  1. Oh this looks like fun! Now I'm itching to go out and get some patterned black and white fabric to play with except I have too much fabric stocked up at the moment!

  5. So cute and no instructions needed- just gorgeous inspiration! My presents were wrapped in standard paper this year, though I was sure to at least gussy them up with a few ribbons and bows.
