...and for the gift of loving.
Mainly because of the 'Lovely Package Exchange' I got really inspired
by beautiful packaging.
I've loved beautiful gift wrapping since I was very young
but I keep loving it more and more.
(You can find the tutorial for the above packaging here.)
Danni from oh, hello friend inspires me endlessly,
with her amazing packaging.
Lots of whites, pastels, doilies and cuteness!
Of course, receiving packages is always lovely,
but giving beautifully wrapped gifts to a loved one is even better!
Just to see the face of the one you're giving a beautiful gift to,
is priceless. Don't you think?
(The flowered wrapping paper on the right,
I have to know where it's from!)
The most lovely thing about a pretty package,
is to make it very personal.
Beautiful tags with a name on it for example...
The possibilities are endless!
Take a look at Etsy for beautiful wrapping paper,
thread, lace and of course pretty Japanese tapes!
Just have fun with it and use your creativity...
Are you also joining the Lovely Package Exchange?
And did you participate last year?
I'd love to hear your stories about last year's Lovely Package Exchange!
What was the packaging like? What did you receive? What did you gave your partner?
I can't wait for it to start!
(Oh, and there are lots of free, pretty printables available too!)
