Almost all wrapped up

Vote for one of these 12 entries that made the finals of the 2011 Going Out Guide/Weekend Holiday Wrapping Paper Contest. (Composite by Anne Kenderdine)

This entry, titled “Welcome Home (Uncle Rock),” was created by 7-year-old Luke Castro and is part of our “adorable mention” photo gallery.
What do you do when you receive more than 600 wrapping paper entries for a kids contest and you can pick only 12 finalists?

You put together a gallery of adorable mentions!

After we finished picking the glitter out of our hair (some kids really love glitter) we choose 14 others that reflected creativity, originality or simply made us smile.

And don’t forget to vote for your favorite finalist before Dec. 11 at 11:59 p.m. The winner will appear on the cover of the Dec. 23 Weekend section.
