(more than) 75 Gift Wrap Ideas

Last year in October was the 31 Ways to Wrap Your Crap series which nearly killed me. 
Pooped me out and yet kept me up at night. 
Made me a grumpy wife and mother, and therefore? Not happening again. So.

My compromise = a month's worth of ideas into one post.



Since I'm already breaking rule #1 by not posting every day,
I might as well disregard rule #2 and talk about the same thing.
There are too many FANTABULOUS packaging ideas out there that must be shared.

It's still September {blast...there goes rule #3}, but the holidays are coming.
And although there is NO SHAME in a plain ol' box and sharpie marker-ed on name,
for those of us that see gift wrapping as a(nother) creative outlet ,
this smorgasbord of ideas is for you.

A Wrap-Up Round-Up, if you will.

Whether your style is simple or elegant, thrown together or elaborate,
there's no wrong way to make someone feel special.

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my post. I think we were in the same place when we were both SAHMs and now we're in the same place again as WOHMs. Bet we're both underpaid and in need of a maid too!
