While browsing Lowes last month, I came across a shelf near the paint aisle with rolls of this:

It’s called “General Purpose Masking Paper” and it comes in a variety of lengths. I chose a roll that was 18″  long and it was less than $5. There were  shorter and longer rolls for less and more money. I decided to use this roll of paper as wrapping paper- look at some of the simple gift wrap ideas I came up with…

I originally thought about using Washi Tape for this project, but I wanted to see what this green Frog Tape looked like, and I really love it!

Idea #3

    Love the simple yet elegant way these look! I have a lot of different boxes, buckets and cans I am trying to use up this year. Great ideas that I can use on those too!
