I love wrapping gifts. I wish I had unlimited time and money to lavishly wrap every gift I give, but that's just not the case. In the past, I've done wrapping themes but now I've amassed such a collection of papers and ribbon that I mix it up quite a bit.
Paper Source, which is one of those really fun places to get into a lot of trouble with your credit card (and I've never walked into the store, only shopped online) had a holiday craft contest this year that included a wrapping competition. The rules were that you had to use Paper Source papers (not a problem for me since I've bought my paper from there for the last two years), but that you could put on any ribbon or embellishments you wanted.
I came up with three entries.
I wish I had straightened the bow before I took the picture of my first entry. The ideas was that the bow fell right under the owl's neck. This is the papaya solid paper with their Christmas owls paper wrapped around. The ribbon is Paper Source's satin ribbon in peacock.
There are some great entries in the contest so if you're looking for a little wrapping inspiration, check them out on the contest page.
What's your wrapping situation? Do you do something special or are gift bags your thing? And are you finished wrapping yet? I am definitely not. In fact you are looking at the sum total of all the gifts I have wrapped so far. In fact, it's hard to wrap gifts you don't have yet, and there are a few of those to deal with too.
