I liked the castle quite a bit myself.
And I thought the bow, with the coordinated center was not too shabby. :-P I actually learned how to make that from my brother. MY BROTHER. HAHA. He made one out of paper and stapled it to a Gap bag one year for my birthday present. :-P
I think there is a charm to having print/words all over. Of course, there is charm to Trader Joe's circular so it might not work with all newspapers or circulars. I was surprised how well it turned out, and thought I'd share! The castle definitely helped. :]
Do you use unconventional wrapping materials or have unique methods to your present wrappery?
