DIY: Snowflake Wrapping Paper With a Pine Branch, a Winner and Another Giveaway


DIY-Snowflake-wrapping-paper-title

Up until yesterday, I think I was the only person on the planet who hadn’t seen the movie “Frozen.”

As a matter of fact, one mom told me (as she was handing me the DVD with a smile on her face) that I had no business being a kindergarten teacher without having seen it. So, not wanting to be behind the times, I grabbed some popcorn and a soda, popped the movie into my DVD player and quickly watched it. I now see why it is a phenomenon for both boys and girls — definitely a delightful movie.

So this holiday season, in keeping with a “Frozen” theme, you and your family can make some cool snowflake wrapping paper together that even Olaf would love.

Click here for the tutorial.

Thank you so much for pinning and commenting on last week’s Flannel and Fringe Scarf Tutorial.

    I love the concept of refashioning from what we already have! I love the flannel fringed scarf and found a piece of flannel in my stash this morning that would be just perfect! Winning a copy of your book would sure make me happy… Thanks for the opportunity and for all your inspiring and creative ideas!
    Warm regards,

    Let it go…..let it go……I’m glad you liked the movie!🙂

  16. DIY WRAPPING PAPER! is top on our list this year as well. We have decided to use fabric scraps lol. (mostly because we forgot to buy paper and don’t want to brave the crowds these next few days, if we can avoid it) Love the blue and white and also love the new skirt!❤

  17. Oh and to the whole Frozen thing: I will be so glad to see the back of it! I think it is suffering from over exposure! lol

  18. Sharon says:

    I am so going to make this. I made pajamas for my Granddaughter from Frozen flannel fabric, what a perfect way to wrap them! I am so glad I stumble upon your site, love seeing what is next! Keep up the good work.
