wrap it up pretty

I am such a sucker for pretty packaging! I seriously will purchase almost anything that comes in a stylish wrapped up bundle. You can roll up a rock in some pretty paper and  top it with a sparkly bow and I will seriously be ear to ear grinning with excitement to open it. Cute packaging just makes getting the gift even more thrilling and knowing someone took the time to put together each gift shows a lot of thoughtfulness (and patience).  I am however guilty of not spreading the gift wrap love to everyone I exchange presents with. I am the worlds worst wrapper and get so overwhelmed by the amount that needs to look good that I usually bail on my creative ideas and succumb to the easy breezy gift bag. If I didn't my gifts would look like a hot mess, I never can seem to cut the appropriate size of paper for the box or fold the edges properly for a flat top or bottom. Tape winds up everywhere and the papers jagged edges always get exposed - it's a total disaster every time and I will spare my family and friends receiving a gift so poorly put together.  I keep telling myself that one day when I have more time and space I will wrap all my gifts up pretty like the beautiful images below and splurge on all the bells and whistles required to giving the perfectly presented present!
