Gift wrapping has to be one of my favorite activities. If I could, I’d have a room designated just for wrapping. It would be stocked with heaps of ribbons, bows, boxes, glitter, and any other item that you could possibly use when it comes to packaging! Today I have a collection of gift wrapping ideas for inspiration. Something to bookmark for your next wrapping session. Above: Fabric Petals from from Pretty Petals. See them after the jump!
Yarn-Embellished Gift Wrap Give holiday gifts unexpected panache by using leftover yarn in place of ribbon. Wind cotton or wool yarn around presents (solid-color paper looks best) a few times for thin stripes or several times more for thick ones. Use a fuzzy yarn to give packages a cozy texture. Combine different yarns for colorful striations. Knot strands tightly on the bottom of each box. If desired, tie a bow on top.
