Happy birthday!

Cool wrapping paper

Today is Mark's birthday...happy birthday honey! I love finding cool wrapping paper for people I adore though what you see is actually not wrapping paper. These are pages from discarded atlases that I have saved. I love wrapping special presents with them. And now that we are all exploring more of the world through these photo blogs, I thought it was appropriate to post this. Another reason the paper makes me happy? It reminds me of all my DP buddies!

Looks like you just recycled the world! Happy Birthday to Mark!

Mark said...

Thanks honey. I love your creativity and your thoughtfulness. Let's see the world together!

This is a really thoughtful idea particularly when you consider how The World is changing so much. Whole countries have changed their names or new countries been created since I was at school.

Thanks for the comments everyone. And remember, I did get these from discarded atlases. :) No new atlases were destroyed to satisfy my creativity.

And Thien, this is brilliant wrapper! Give me new idea on gift-wrapping! Hope you have recovered from the cedar fever! Take care!

I have a penchant for creative gift wrapping myself. In fact I wanted to open a business for specialized gift wrapping.
