Gift wrapping has to be one of my favorite activities. If I could, I’d have a room designated just for wrapping. It would be stocked with heaps of ribbons, bows, boxes, glitter, and any other item that you could possibly use when it comes to packaging! Today I have a collection of gift wrapping ideas for inspiration. Something to bookmark for your next wrapping session. Above: Fabric Petals from from Pretty Petals. See them after the jump!
