What materials did you use? I save all of my worked crossword puzzles, and they make interesting wrapping paper. For this box (also recycled), I had to do a fair amount of folding and taping, but it worked just fine. The ribbon had been given to us, and the dried plants came from our own farm. The little feathers came from our (dear departed) chicken Little Cluck.

What are you most proud of? That it is unique, for one thing. And that a strange conglomeration of items came together in the end!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just walk around the house with your eyes wide openamazing what turns out to be useful for making a beautiful wrapped package!

My, does that take me back in time! I remember many packages wrapped in newspapers. It was more important to save those extra pennies for other purposes than it was to wrap the gift in pretty paper.

Indeed (and so good to remember those days now!). And with Alton's guidance, newspaper, paper bags, maybe even plastic bags (!) can be beautiful, too!

This is a great idea. I'd be tempted to leave a puzzle half done - who could resist finishing it?
