Everyone, That’s a Wrap!

I love presents! I love getting them, but more than anything, I enjoy giving them. Mostly, because I love wrapping paper, ribbons & bows. I think Maria von Trapp would be singing a different tune these days. “Brown paper packages tied up with string?” Ugh. Only if the brown paper was of a crisp fine quality & the string was a beautiful pink or baby blue ribbon. I have been known to spend exorbitant amounts of cash on wrapping paper. I love Carolyne Roehm’s products:
French Blue & White Carolyne Roehm
Louis XVI Carolyne Roehm
And my favorites:
Bright Wrap1 Carolyne Roehm
Bright Wrap2 Carolyne Roehm
These are lovely & romantic. But, if you want something with a little more flavor try the fantastic Whimsy Press:
SoMa-Whimsy Press
Alpha Bubbles-Whimsy Press
Pirates-Whimsy Press
And my favorite, Gritty in Pink:
Gritty in Pink-Whimsy Press
Not only does their wrapping paper have fantastic names, but their site is lovely and easy to use. They have the perfect balance of cute & subversive in their products that I find very appealing.
I also found a ton of great wrapping paper at Kate’s Paperie:
Vintage Games-Kate’s Paperie
Spring Yuzen-Kate’s Paperie
Eieio-Kate’s Paperie
You might think this post is showing excessive amounts of gift wrap, but someday I will post pictures of my wrapping accessories cupboard & you’ll see that this is nothing. What can I say? It’s my secret shame. Although, now that I told everyone, not so secret anymore. And now that I think about it, not so shameful. So, it’s my perfectly healthy & normal obsession. That’s it for this wrap session. Ciao!
