Decorating with Wrapping Paper



Success with a decorating project! I wanted to frame two Audubon bird prints I found at an antique shop recently. I happened to have two metal Ikea frames with concert posters I was ready to retire, but the frames were way too large for the delicate little prints. Inspiration struck! Off to my favorite card and gift shop I went in search of some nice wrapping paper, and I was happy to find this antique-looking paper with shades of green that play well off the prints. After that, it was a cinch to cut the paper to fit the frame and tape the bird prints down in the center. Ta-da!

They look awesome but consider rematting them with acid free mats if you care about conserving them.

Great idea. I love it when great designs come out of everyday things that we wouldn't otherwise use. That's the mark of a truly creative person.
