B. Inspired: Low Cost Gift Wrap

If you love gift wrap or just love to be smart with money, Bryce has a handy trick. Just head to your local Home Depot or any hardware store and buy masking paper. 

For just $2.97, Bryce bought masking paper that was 12" wide and 180' long. That's 180 feet. It'll last you forever and act as a perfect palette for your creative endeavors...whether it's with paint, crayons, magazine cutouts or stickers, you can personalize your gift any way your heart desires...

One way Bryce added some charm to his presents was with colored raffia or twine. Then he used his set of alphabet stamps to personalize each one. (some great options here, Amy Butler's modern version here.) If you like to be a little crafty, you'll reuse these letters over and over for years to come, trust me...

Bryce added a homemade gift tag from scrap wood in his shop. The possibilities are endless, without any extra cost. Homemade is always better and this project proves a great way to reinvent a new life for some of your old things lying around your house. Thanks Bryce...
