Wrapping # 2....

OK, we left yesterday's blog with ideas on craft organizing.  Some people have craft rooms, and some have craft closets, down to under the bed storage.  It's all good, as long as we know where everything is when we are ready to use it.  Now many of us do the usual wrapping at the holidays like this....

#Christmas *wants this wrapping paper!*
This is probably what my wrapping looks like, although I use the colorful paper for the children's gifts, and I try and put a really nice bow on the adult gifts.

This lady's wrapping matches her tree!  She said she likes to be coordinated with her wrapping and decorations.  This is a different color for the holidays, but very pretty!

Oh my goodness, this looks like a very merry Lilly Pulitzer Holiday!!  The perfect pink and green.

These gifts are wrapped with some imagination.  I love this idea of wrapping gifts this way.  It brings a little nature and texture inside.

This gift is lovely.  Simple yet very elegant.

Very pretty!

This is very economical.  Love the brown wrapping with the greens attached.

This is another brown paper wrapping, only used with stencils.  It looks like they even used bags to do this. 
Everyone has some bags hanging around, very cool wrapping!

Who wouldn't know this is by Martha!  It looks very perfect. Very merry Martha.

This is so natural and Merry!  So Christmas.

Here is another natural gift wrapping.  I love the gift tags.  That would be easy to do.  I like this idea.

These gifts are so beautiful.  I love the idea of using all white colors.  It looks like it may be a little time consuming to wrap these gifts.  I would love receiving one of these.  It would feel so special, knowing that someone took the time to wrap my gift like this.

Gift tags with imagination.  They are so pretty.  Of course http://www.marthastewart.com/ .  I think I better start making them now so that they would be ready to go once the holidays roll around.

And last but not least, these are simply beautiful!  I would love something like this under my tree, or any other time of year for that matter!

I found so many ideas for wrapping gifts.  All of these pictures are from Pinterest.  I hope you found them helpful as well.  Does it make you stop and think about wrapping your gifts with imagination?  I hope so, because it does make people feel special to receive a gift that is beautifully wrapped.
How do you wrap your gifts?  I would love to have a link up party, but I don't know how!
 Check out the pictures here. http://pinterest.com/susan_toto/

Have a wonderful day!
