wrapping up the week

I had a few small gifts for my friend visiting from Kenya.  Because I love a theme, I decided to wrap the gifts with animal print and some glittery animals.  I used my favorite brown wrapping and painted on zebra stripes and leopard spots with some craft paint.
Next, I took some plastic animals I had laying around and glittered!  An easy way to glitter items is to mix the glitter into glue or modge podge.  When you first paint it on it doesnt look like there is much glitter, but the final product is definitely sparkle filled. 
To complete my gift, I tied the glittery creatures into the bows. 
Have you painted any gift wrap lately?  Glittered any plastic animals?!
