Let’s Wrap it up {holiday gift wrapping ideas}

Surprise Me!
It’s time to wrap those gifts!   If you are crazy about gift wrap, you are going to love these ideas found around the net!  If you need some easy and impressive ideas, you’ve come to the right place.
Heather Bullard shows how to recycle paper that might already be in your home.  Wrap a gift for a traveler in a map; use a sewing pattern for the seamstress on your list; and for a relative, embellish vintage wallpaper with old family photos!

Here’s an easy idea to make bows from recycled magazines from whole living
For a gorgeous package, Ambrosia Girl adds velvet ribbon and a little glitter!
A Little Hut has this super cute idea and tutorial using popsicle sticks instead of a gift tag.
Oh, my gosh!  Wait ’til you see this confetti embellishment shared by tokketok!  Just place a little 2-sided tape on your wrapped gift and dip away!  Love it!
….and I love baking cups so had to share one more!

How easy is this?  Family Chic has such a fun alternative to a bow!  These would be great in holiday colors.
