Wrapping paper isn't just for wrapping gift boxes. Here's some more ideas to inspire you whether you are decorating for the holidays, planning a party or wedding.
1. Frame it. Use wrapping paper like a piece of art. The smaller shadow box frame in the photo above was used to display a holiday napkin in colours that matched our Holly Jolly wrapping paper in the larger frame.
2. Add a band of wrapping paper to our battery operated candles. I used burlap and ribbon on these candles as well. The ribbon keeps the wrapping paper and burlap in place so you don't need to use glue or tape on the candles.
3. Cover books with wrapping paper. It's easy to make book jackets and it will give your bookcase a whole new look for the holidays - or year round! Use solid colours or pick a pattern that suits your decor.
4. Set the table with a wrapping paper table runner. I used a decorative edge punch along the two ends to give this black wrapping paper a festive touch. I've shown you how to use this punch on paper bags before.
One of my favourite tools for gift wrapping is our wrapping paper cutter. Once you've used one of these you will never want to cut wrapping paper with scissors again.
