Not so many days ago, someone asked me if I had any hobbies. I had to think for a minute before I sheepishly explained that my most favorite thing to do is wrap gifts. It sounds so strange. I should have probably lied and carried on about how I construct tiny ships inside tiny bottles or how I knit all my own clothes. Explaining my relationship with paper is not an easy thing to do. I just really, really love paper. (Oh...AND, nicely sharpened pencils...but that's a whole other blog.)
Found these great catalogue pictures for gift wrapping some cosmetics...
Couldn't resist this graphic... The gift?
A book: How They Died and Where They're Buried.
For my nephew's gift of Big Bang Theory DVDs...
Found these notecards on the $1 aisle at Michael's.
Trimmed them and made package toppers.
You guessed it! It was a cookbook!
Tributes to my love of paper medallions.
I found these great butterflies at Michael's on the $1 aisle!
What's not to love?!
And then, there's ribbon. Beautiful, beautiful ribbon.
I've been scouting all of the after Christmas sales for 90% off ornaments. I've stockpiled some great toppers for next year's gifts!
Nothing fancy. Nothing professional. Nothing particularly "pin-worthy." I just love the creative process!
When's your birthday!? I'll wrap up a box for you! The box may be empty, but it will be fun to open!
