I’m excited to announce this year’s 2013 Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest!  The 17th annual Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest will take place Friday, December 6 at Celsius at Bryant Park in New York City. All you have to do is submit a 3-minute video of your best gift wrap and gift wrapping tips before September 22 to be considered (Quick! That’s THIS Sunday!). Eight finalists will be chosen and flown to New York City for an all-expenses paid trip to compete for the $10,000 and the title of the 2013 Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper!!! The first 50 valid entries will automatically receive a prize pack of the new Scotch Expressions Tapes! Learn more about the contest {HERE}!

I was able to try out some of my own gift wrapping inspired by Scotch Expressions Tapes.  They are available in over 100 colors and patterns and four varieties—Magic Tape, masking tape, washi tape and shipping tape.

I decided to upcycle these used food boxes from my kitchen pantry (so now you know I eat generic whole wheat rotini and pop tarts!).

I started off by cutting off the top flaps.

Then, I covered the box with colorful paper to match my Scotch Expressions Tape.

I also used a hole punch to punch holes on each side of the boxes to insert a ribbon for a handle.

I chose some masking tape and some washi tape to embellish my upcycled gift bags, and tied on some ribbon. Tah-dah!
