One of my absolute weaknesses when it comes to giving gifts is gift wrap! Of course I care what’s underneath the packaging, yada yada, but for whatever reason, I am obsessed with wrapping paper. It must be because I’m dying to create my own collection or something because I just can’t get enough…
We all know just how close Valentine’s Day is getting, so it feels like a pretty good time to DIY a little something for your V-Day pressies anyway. And it only takes 5 minutes, so you pretty much HAVE to do it. Right? Right!
There’s really nothing to this one (just press stickers onto pastel papers and you’re good to go), which is why I don’t have any step by step shots. But I do have the source list for where I bought my stickers, if you want to create a similar pattern…
The holographic circles are from Amazon. The peachy pink dots are also from Amazon ($9 for a box of 1,000 stickers!). And surprise…the silver stars can also be bought on Amazon OR pretty much any office supply store, where the sticky tabs and yard sale stickers are. You can find them SUPER easily and they’re probably my favorite of all.
Once you stick them on your paper in a haphazard (or organized) pattern, wrap your gifts as usual and you’re good to go. I added some pastel painted wood hearts (which are from here) and colorful string to finish things off, but I think they look great on their own too.

i agree with you! i LOVE wrapping paper.
to this day i beat myself up for not buying that flamingo paper at marshalls a couple of months ago.
i just wished other people could love it as much.
last year for our office xmas exchange, i picked my gift solely because of the wrapping paper.Les
i opened it sooo carefully and i kept it.
heck, i loved that more than the actual gift…i dont even remember what i got. lol
