All Wrapped Up in Style

As Christmas shopping comes to a close, it's time to get all of those gifts wrapped! Instead of going the traditional route with decorative wrapping paper slapped with a store bought bow and curled ribbon, why not try something new this year? I've rounded up several great wrapping ideas that are "outside the box" and fairly easy to do. Click on the link below each image for details on how to achieve the look. Are you almost done with your shopping? Good luck getting everything finished and ready to go by the end of the week!
