gifts with sparkle are my fave

Just a few ideas for how to add sparkle to your gifts so they stand out underneath the tree. Guaranteed a gift wrapped with something shiny will make the recipient convinced they like the gift more than they actually do. Heck, you could wrap a used band-aid in a box adorned with sequins and it would be a hit.

Hint: used glittered card stock found in the scrap booking section instead of messing with loose glitter and glue to create some of these looks.

    I don’t believe I have commented before but I so enjoy the eye candy you present here!!
    I was inspired by your jar toppers and came up with a boy version for my kids to give away: http://www.jessicalynette.com/holidays/gifts-in-a-jar-a-boy-twist/

    Thanks for the fabulousness!

    Do I love that accordion bow made out of glitter paper? Yes. Yes, I do.

    Gifts with sparkle are certainly my fav too! I’m wrapping in a more ‘traditional’ style this year (brown paper packaging tied up with string) but next year I’m thinking I’ll have to throw some glitter into it.

    Ooo great idea! If I can get the bow to look like that giant one on the left, I’m giving myself a pat on the back (and a drink). :)

    I may just have to try wrapping a band-aid up with glittery paper-sounds like a Jimmy Kimmel segment!

    Gahh I love these! I love the silver glitter polka dots. Too bad I know I’ll wind up at Wal-Mart tomorrow to buy wrapping paper… oh well, there’s always next year!
