This Valentines I felt like doing something a little different. I always give my mum a bunch of flowers, I think it’s good for my sons to see that Valentines should be about appreciating everyone you love not only your spouse/partner (or secret love!).
So when the people at Wrap.me got in touch about their brilliant wrapping paper I couldn’t wait to try it out. The process was super easy, I logged into their website, and clicked on the button linking to my instagram account (or if you prefer you can upload images from your computer).
I chose all of my #natureinthehome images. A mix of floral and nature inspired photos, knowing that my Mum and Dan love these too. The whole process was super easy, clicking to add each image (up to a total of 30 images), and I could preview my roll as I went along too, adding and removing images to get it just right.
The roll arrived speedily, and today I set to wrapping their gifts. I bought Dan a lovely old book about carpentry. Being a wood working geek, he will love this old find. The front cover is so cool, I think it might appear in many a photo in the coming months!
The wrapping paper is thick, great quality with a luxurious feel. The squares make cutting very easily and allows a very neat edge. I wrapped Dan’s book simply with some natural twine and added a sprig of eucalyptus for flourish.
For my Mum, I bought a mix of deep magenta anenomes, paper whites, wax flowers and eucalyptus from my local florist. The smell is divine, and so much prettier than the usual red roses. I used the wrapping paper, by curling it up into a cone shape and popping the posy inside. Finally I tied a strip of Liberty tana lawn fabric around as a ribbon.
I love this wrapping paper – I can use it for so many projects. Not just wrapping gifts, but perhaps covering books, lining draws and making my own envelopes. What would you make with it?
