Crossword Puzzle Wrapping Paper Works for Any Occasion

Crossword Puzzle Wrapping Paper Works for Any Occasion: [ Filed under More or in the Industrial Design category ]

The number one problem with wrapping papers: they are typically suited for only one season, holiday or other highly-particular occasion. Compounding the issue: each sheet and roll remains the same from one year to the next. Here is a two-fold solution, so to speak.

From Fabio | Milito comes this ever-so-clever and extremely simple idea: a subject-free, fill-in-the-blank, all-season wrapper that is versatile but minimalist, fit for friends, family and acquaintances.

A cheat sheet is included for those who wish to find a short-cut for a last-minute gift – options include birthdays, congratulations, miss you, love you, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Easter, and the ever-popular: it is not a tie.

But part of the fun is (or could be) filling in those blanks – figuring out where the words you want to select are hidden within the puzzle, highlighting or circling them, and making sure they appear where you want them to on the finish-wrapped present in question. Genius, interactive yet modest.
