Birthday Present Wrapping

I just had a lot of fun wrapping presents for my boyfriend's birthday.  I picked up some fun papers at Paper Place: "heroes and villans," sneakers, and sushi.

I also got some solid red and black wrap from waste not paper.  It's nice, heavy, and smooth, great for gift wrapping.

Since the boxes were fairly large, I couldn't use the decorative paper for the full box.  I ended up cutting it into strips, then experimenting with washi tape and black ribbon.  I used a lot of black, red, and grey tapes, and a hint of the thin green striped tape.

Here is the final result!  


  1. Love it and can't wait to go to Paper Place!

  2. My son started to become into heros and he can definitely recognize most of these hero figures. It's really cute wrapping paper! Oh I haven't heard the word Zakka for a while. I enjoy browsing zakka-ya in Japan. So fun to see interesting products. I'm going to check out your other posts now. :-)
