Opening a gift should be an experience within itself. I think that every "giving" occasion can be enhanced by a little extra effort!!
I learned from a dear friend, Shanna, how to wrap gifts using hot glue instead of tape. Some of my recipients don't really appreciate the immaculate wrapping because a jackhammer is sometimes needed to actually get to the gift.

Mailing a wrapped gift poses the problem of how to keep the gift looking great during shipping.
|This wrap matched the recipients' fun spirit. I got the paper flower topper at Michael's in a $1 bin.|
|I found this take out lid and covered the flower with it. Rubber bands held it in place.|
I then wrapped the whole thing tightly in white tissue and
taped it up securely so that the flower couldn't escape.
To be continued.
