some extra inspiration? flickr photos show us the results of a pretty cool ‘lovely package swap‘. what a great idea!

i always try to use recycled, or otherwise landfill-bound goodies to wrap my gifts with (sorry everyone)- but by adding some fresh fabric scraps and some yarn or stickers- you can literally turn drab into fab!

do you have any ideas? share with us any tips or pics! hope to see you back here on monday! xo, bonnie

  • I come across doilies at the flea market all the time. What a clever idea to use them in your gift wrapping! Thanks for sharing!
