We're taking a break from the ColorFUN Classroom this week due to an upcoming event for us this weekend, so I thought I'd share a fun project I worked on a couple of weeks ago for one of my BFFs. It's actually one of my new favorite ways to decorate gifts so I hope this inspires a few of you out there to do the same!
Recently, one of my friends from college, Daniel, came to visit LA with his lovely new wife. The girls and I were bummed that we couldn't make their international weddings (yes, that's plural - they're so fancy!) so we wanted to make sure to buy them an awesome gift. I was put in charge of gift wrapping duties (UM, WHY? We know how awful I am) and while I was able to get the large gift packaged, I ran out of gift wrap when it came to the smaller gift. So what do you do in this situation? Paint it!
Want to do this yourself? Just grab some white butcher paper, wrap the gift, and then get your paint on!
I specifically used acrylic paint because I knew it wouldn't seep through the paper and ruin the gift.

Above is a quick time lapse of my work. I think it took 20-30 minutes in actual time, which in that time, I could have easily gone out to the store and bought more gift wrap, but where's the fun in that? LOLZ!
What gift wrap hacks do you use? Comment below!
