Handmade has always been a part of the holidays for me. As a child I liked to make my own wrapping paper. Sometimes it was drawn and other times it was recycled news paper. Once I even used aluminum foil. I must say that it was not the most beautiful of wrapping jobs. I have changed tremendously since the days of foil wrapping. Although few things have not, that is my love of making things myself and using recycled material. The tube that will eventually hold a treat is from a Prima flower package and the pattern paper is a left over from one of Keri Lee Sereikas projects. ( http://www.pinklemonade.typepad.com/ ) I also used her Spellbinders Nestabilities. It is wondrful having friends who craft too. I hope you can take the time to make a gift for someone.
