Giftwrapping from recycled cards and recycled Christmas baubles

I don't know about you, but I was still wrapping gifts yesterday, and I thought to write this post to help you to give your gifts that extra bit of oompf .
All you need is some old Christmas cards and some leftover Christmas baubles .Together, they can make your presents really special.
Here below are some examples which hope will inspire you.(You will need a glue gun ).
Here is an example .
Start with a relatively neutral paper.I bought this 10 meter roll of green Christmas paper for £ 1,- .in a charity shop.
Wrap your present.

Add some baubles.

Add a card you like and that you think goes well with the baubles....

Add a ribbon that goes well with the card and the baubles.
Add some more ribbon if you like and a gift tag.

and you're done!

Here is another example..
Wrap your present...

Add a card that you like...

add some baubles..
..and some Christmas ornaments that echo the scene on the card...

Some more ribbons and you're done !

And one more :

Add some fake berries..

Add a Christmas decoration...

Add some more fake flowers and baubles..

and add a gift tag and you're done!

Happy wrapping!

Dearest Bea,

Whomever is on the receiving end of your GIFTS within a GIFT, are lucky! You are such a natural artist, everything comes out of your hands looking special.
Merry Christmas friend and have a lovely time with your loved ones, two- and four-legged.
