I recently was offered a gift wrap sample book. The sample book was from the 1996/1997 collection and the idea was that the sample book was to serve as an inspiration for art projects. It certainly inspired me, and in more than one way. For this project, I turned small pieces of the gift wrap into a greeting card, but most importantly, I realized that sample books can be a great money saver for crafters.
