That's a Wrap!

Here in Arkansas, we are smack in the middle of a Winter Storm today.  It's a good thing quite a bit of my Christmas shopping is done.  I thought I'd spend the day wrapping gifts. 
I'm not really a fan of regular ol' gift wrap.  I prefer the wrap be functional or at least hand made.  Here are some things that have worked for me.  Maybe you'll like them, too?
Zebra Box  For this fun option, I used a plain box and dressed it up with some duct tape.

DIY Envelopes  Are you giving gift cards?  I made these envelopes with paper scraps!
Got Tu Tus?  This is my solution for rumple free wrapping.

How 'bout a silly recycled container?  Gobblin' Gus techniques could be used for young (or goofy) gift recipients!  ;-)  There's more than one "GOOFY" on my list!  'Just saying.  ;-)

 This Quick Zebra Pouch was big hit wrapping nail polish for a chic teenager!  She used it as a coin purse for a very long time!


If you read my blog much at all, you know how I love Hand Stamped Brown Paper Bags!  They always make me smile!

Bandanas are great for  lots of things, especially books!
So, there you have it!  These are some things I'll be doing today while we ride out our winter storm.  How do you wrap gifts for the people you love?

  4. Looks like a good way to spend an icy day to me! Aren't you about to get round 2 now?

  5. I love these ideas! I can see my tween girls LOVING nail polish wrapped up like that little coin purse!

  6. What a great collection of gift wrap ideas. I especially like the bandannas and the colors you chose really pop. Great idea.
    God bless you,

  7. The bandanas are really cool!
    I'm going to be giving some gifts in attractive reusable grocery bags. The recipients can keep the bags and use them for groceries once the gifts are opened.

  8. oohhhh ahhhhh! I would love the packaging even more than the gift :) Thanks for linking to Snickerdoodle Sunday!
