Hope you had a Merry Christmas!! I wanted to have one more post on creative wrapping to show off what I received (and maybe have you show off what you received)!

If you missed the other posts, here’s a picture of all of them:

 

 

For Christmas, my sister Amy gave me a present with a DIY snowflake on it that she made out of toilet paper rolls!! I LOVED it! The original tutorial can be found on Muffin Tin Mom.

 

Since I didn’t get a picture of the present she gave me, I decided to wrap a box in newspaper and use her snowflake as the accessory:

 

 

You should check out her original post to see the cute snowflake ornament she made!

I’ve been finding so many creative ideas for wrapping presents on Pinterest!! Like last week, in this post I’ll show you the inspiration I found on Pinterest, followed by my creative version!

Wrapping paper duo

I have so many ideas to share today!! I’ve been a little bit busier wrapping this week, but I still have almost half of my presents yet to buy and wrap!

So far, I’ve shown how you can make a flower from a Target bag, and how to make confetti dipped presents using only tissue paper.

This week, I’m going to show you what I’ve found on Pinterest and then my version of it.

Half ‘n Half

If you have two different kinds of wrapping paper, why not use both?

I like the look of 'candy' that it has!

I’m so excited to share with you all the ideas on wrapping I’ve come across!! I plan to have this blog hop live by noon each Wednesday in December. However, this morning I had some unforeseen circumstance pop up before I had the chance to write the post.

Fun with tissue paper!

I got inspired by this dipping confetti wrapping I found through Tip Junkie! It looked so fun and easy!
