Gift Wrap Ideas

Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner?  Wowza!  ;-)
 
I'm not really a fan of regular ol' gift wrap.  I prefer the wrap be functional or at least hand made.  I really like using fabric, towels, blankets or even sheets.

Bandanas are great for lots of things, especially books!

  4. Some great ideas here, Marci. Many I remember, but some I haven't seen. I always loved the way you 'wrapped' the tutu. I have to check out those envelopes. They look great. Love you to add these to the Gift Wrapping linky at TMW, too.
