I love cute gift wrapping!

Don't you just love cute gift wrapping? I sure do. I love giving it and I love receiving it. If it's wrapped up pretty, I basically don't even care what's in the package. j/k, but really, I do love it.

I had a baby shower to go to last weekend and wanted to wrap it up all cutesie, but I hate spending $4 on a gift bag that will just get thrown in the trash. So I came up with a cute idea that is too good not to share, IMO:)

Hobby Lobby usually has their photo boxes on sale for 2 for $5.00. I knew I loved that store for a reason! So I picked up a cute, girly photo box to wrap the gift in {since the mommy is having a baby girl}, added some tissue paper and the gift, tied with a cute ribbon, and voila! Quick, cute gift wrap! Plus, she can use the photo box for all of the photos she takes when the baby arrives. The box comes with cardboard dividers, which I just left in underneath the tissue paper.

  6. Super cute! I never use gift bags. I hate them. I'd rather spend the time wrapping a gift and putting a bow on it. I'm with you... wrapping makes a difference!
