What a wonderful idea! LOVE personalized wrapping paper - my aunt used to buy this white stiff paper and come with arms full of markers and glue and ribbon and sparkles and let me loose decorating all her presents. thanks for sharing this wonderful idea!

These are really fun!

I love the wrapping paper. Now, for holidays it's great way to customize gift even more.
I have my own experience with that type of wrapping- when I was leaving my last job (which I miss a lot) I was given gift by my coworkers (and miss them too..). The gift was wrapped in paper with their photos on it! i love it so much, that I keep it in easily accessible place and take a peak at them on days when I miss them more.

Liv said...

Hilarious, have you seen the teabags with famous soccer players and designers, they look like they were having a soak in the teacup, funny.

Cat said...

Super sweet! Now, the problem with this would be the guilt from tearing the wrapping paper (what if you tore your great grandma and grandpa apart...quite literally ?). Love the nostalgia. Best, Cat

Bronwyn said...

That's so pretty! I can see Cat's dilemma, too...
Also, I really really love the blue box in the first shot.
