3 Ways to Make a Wrapping Statement

Each year the dreaded WRAPPING creeps up on me. I hide the presents in the back of the closet for weeks (or i'm late christmas shopping and don't even have to hide them) and then all of the sudden... 
I have to WRAP!

I always have the high hopes of using my creative side to make the gifts seem like little pieces of art each year. I like them to look and feel special. 
Even though they will only get ripped to shreds. 
It's the momma's thought that counts right?!

So here are a few ways a fun blog called Three Little Crowns came up 
with to dress your presents the right way!
