Monday’s Make-it … { Wallpaper giftwrap }

Happy Monday! I was in the dr ofc this morn and heard a visiting patient say how she ‘hates Monday’s since she has to work’. I felt a bit sad for her and confused …. bec I feel every day is a GIFT, how we spend it (smiling, laughing, grumpy, sad) is up to us.  Sometimes I want to shake people and yell focus on gratitude, but then .. that wouldn’t be to zen-like of me hahaha! Instead, I send them heartwarming thoughts.  You can turn lemons into lemon-aids … or turn WALLPAPER into GIFTWRAP PAPER (ok,ok, … that’s a looong stretch, but you get the picture, right!). Today’s post shows/REMINDS us to think outside of the box when gifting … focusing on the care + love placed into the gifting.

To wrap a book I was gifting to one of my assistants, I used left over wallpaper from this project (did you see my short hair then?!).


I choose a red ribbon for a POP of color CONTRAST, and this color red always reminds me of looooove: 


Around and around:


No ‘ordinary’ giftwrap paper here or standard ribbon design (I created stripes with the red ribbon): 


Do you like when you received gifts ‘unconventionally’ wrapped? Once in a while I choose the “bag + tissue” gift method, but most of the times I do aim to go out of my way to make the packaging as caring as the gift:
