Fall in love...

     
... with wrapping paper!

I'm not a fan of wrapping paper. In fact, I probably haven't purchased any in about five years. (and for more about over-priced crap, click here) It just so happens, I have in my possession, a never-ending roll of white craft paper. I've had this paper for, not-coincidentally, about five years. It's super versatile, and I can decorate it any way I choose, depending on the occasion. I also like to use innovative gift wrapping ideas, for example, putting a gift card into a mason jar full of candy. 

However, while perusing a blog tonight, I happened to stumble upon this website, Paper Source. I instantly fell in love with some of their wrapping papers, which led me to conduct a search for other cool paper.

Check it out..

Flora & Fauna Marine Fish & Irish Algae Wrapping Paper 
a throw-back to 18th-century etchings, these fabulous fish are part of the PS Green choices line and are printed on "Eco-White, 100% recycled, 30% post-consumer waste, paper." You can find it here.
 
Butterfly Migration Wrapping Paper
These colorful butterflies originally started life on a calender but are now offered as wrapping paper. Also from the PS Green choices line, these beauties flutter on printed "Eco-White, 100% recycled, 30% post-consumer waste, paper." You can find them here.

Robots Wrapping Paper
How cool are these guys? What little boy wouldn't love getting a gift wrapped in these? Also part of the PS Green choices line, these robots are printed on "Eco-White, 100% recycled, 30% post-consumer waste, paper." You can find them here.


Goldfish Wrapping Paper 
These goldfish remind me of Japanese art with the swirling blue background. They'd be a perfect way to brighten anyone's day! This paper is part of the PS Green choices line and is printed on "Eco-White, 100% recycled, 30% post-consumer waste, paper." You can find it here.

 
Halloween Witches Curry Wrapping Paper 
Typically, I don't like anything "holiday themed" but this paper is so bewitching (sorry, I couldn't help it). This paper is part of the PS Green choices line and is printed on "Eco-White, 100% recycled, 30% post-consumer waste, paper." You can find it here.

Salsify & Wasp Paper 
For some reason, this wrapping paper reminds me of my Great-Aunt Glady, who lived in Florida for many years. Something about the garishness of this paper is kind of attractive. You can find it here.

Paisley Chartreuse Paper 
I'm so in love with this print and would enjoy seeing it as window treatments. The detailing and the colors are just exquisite. You can find it here.

 
Oh My Deer
Now this is holiday paper! This cheerful wrapping would look good under anyone's tree. This gift wrap is 100% recycled. You can find it here.

Birdy Birdy

These chicks are crazy cute! What a great way to welcome a brand new baby girl to the world or brighten up your grandmother's birthday! This gift wrap is 100% recycled. You can find it here.

UPDATE: Upon further consideration of this topic, I've decided that I totally want to design wrapping paper! When I grow up, of course.

I like the goldfish! and the paisley! They told me at Syracuse U before that I would be great designing fabrics (patterns and whatnot). Something about the way I painted and my designs. I wasn't sure what to think about that back then. It did seem kind of appealing, but I was so lost at that point. I think about that occasionally now. It would be something fun! I guess designing fabric would be akin to designing wrapping paper.
