Decorate presents with magazine pages
I was inspired by this post where they printed off fonts then cut them out and used them for lettering on a package:
As something this fancy would have looked awkward under our "Charley Brown" tree, I decided to use an old magazine and make letters from the pages or cut out letters to decorate the presents after I used magazine pages to wrap them. This works great for VHS, DVDs and video games or smaller.
Here are some samples of the finished product:
The only materials you need are:
- An old magazine (I used an old "Interview" magazine as the pages are larger and they have more "artsy" images, but any magazine would do)".
- A glue stick (to glue the letters or images to packaging and to seal the packaging - you could also use tape if you would prefer).
- Scissors (to cut up words and images from the magazine).
This is a larger package where several pages of a magazine were glued together, then drew the letters freehand from a colorful magazine page and cut out the leters of the name and then glued a part of a page that had guitars on it from an old music catalog and glued it over the front as my son into guitars.
This a page from the old music catalog and it was used to wrap the present.
I then then drew the letters freehand from a colorful magazine page for the letters of the name then glued them to a white part of a magazine page, outlined the letter of the name and the edges of the white piece in pink highlighter then glued it ot the package.
