{holiday inspiration: gift wrapping}

. . . although this year it's all heavy kraft paper and endless lengths of velvet smokey lavender ribbon, also adore the idea of white on white opalescence and starfish, and shiny satin ribbons embellished with vintage and glittery rhinestone pins . . .

{p.s.} more gift wrapping inspiration: diamonds & stars

I'm all about the gift wrapping too! Love beautiful wrapping & stationary. As a Flight Attendant I always ask the flight deck crew for all routing maps & I use that for wrapping gifts!
