We don’t really do Valentines around here. But when the chance arose to try out this lovely customisable wrapping paper by Wrap.me, I said yes please, and promptly started the search for something to package up! I love the idea of wrapping gifts with personal memories of happy times, and with lots of birthdays and occasions on the horizon I can see me becoming an addict to making these pretty sheets, it’s such fun finding images in similar hues and themes.So as February the 14th is just around the corner, I went on a vintage rummaging mission in the lovely town of Rye to find some pre loved things I knew he would appreciate.For my wrap design I chose lots of Instagram pictures from all of our favourite coastal trips these last few months, which made a paper that was beautiful aqua, blue and grey hues with lots of sea birds thrown in! You can also upload images from your computer or Facebook, I think it makes such lovely personalised wrapping paper, each sheet you create has a secret story to tell between you and whoever you are giving something to. To add a finishing touch, I gathered together some of the treasure we have found on the beaches here in Hastings and Pett Level. Decorated shells, seaweed etc, that have been floating around the rooms in our home since our coastal themed festivities in December. Have you used Wrap.me to make your own beautiful gift wrap before?For more styling and wrapping ideas from some of my lovely blogging friends pop over to our shared Pinterest board!
