Gift Wrap Inspiration!

I plan to start wrapping some gifts over the weekend but it is snowing and it is cold and I do NOT want to spend money on wrapping I am thinking I am going to go green this year and use the newspaper ...or paper from the breakable items I bought at Pier One today...they wrapped up my items with TONS of paper!

Here is some inspiration I found....I think we all need to try to make this newspaper flower at least once!!....
I think I have rafia somewhere.....and I KNOW I have some yarn and peacock feathers....
...and I'm pretty sure I have some scrapbook paper....
Off to set up my wrapping station.....(after going out for a fancy dinner....just got a offer I can't refuse!) .....I bet I have black and white ribbon too!!
Happy Wrapping!


  1. how clever...and so beautiful! bravo!

  2. Good for you! That sounds like a great idea and can be lots of fun, too. I'm a little jealous that it's snowing where you are - can you send me some? Have a great weekend. :) Theresa

  3. This is just perfect! I love using recycled material - who knew newspaper could be so lovely!

  4. Can you email me your email address....

  5. Great ideas! I have just been dancing to Katy Perry and am now so hot and sweaty I'm going for a swim! Hard to imagine snow when it's SO hot here!

  6. ~l♥ve it...i have put an end to buying wrapping paper...we have an over abundance of paper products that come and go so i try to be clever and do just the same...hope your fancy dinner with most delicious!! warm wishes and brightest blessings~
