Creative Gift Wrapping

Hello peepsOctober is a busy time for me with lots of birthdays to celebrate.  

I was getting ready to mail a package that included a birthday present.  Like all things paper, I just love some of the paper napkins that are available.  

This is the second time that I've used a paper napkin for wrapping.  Underneath the gift is the package of napkins.  I find them at Tuesday Morning, a discount store in Santa Fe.  I think they are all over the United States but am not sure. 
In the next photo you can see the beautiful pattern when the napkin is unfolded.
I have another idea for these napkins.  I just don't know if I have enough of them.  It will be an interesting experiment, to say the least!

What about you?  Do you have a special way of wrapping?  I know some people attach a little charm to the bow -- I LOVE this idea.

Peace,
Kay

Wow, Kay, this made beautiful wrapping paper. Would never have guessed it was napkins. (We have Tues Morning here too). There's a technique using napkins fused to cardstock that you can find on Youtube, if you don't know about it. You did a great job with your pretty packages, and can't wait to see what your next idea is! Hope all is going well. Thinking of you. TFS, Hugs & happy Sunday evening.

Hello Kay that looks so pretty. I am going to 'borrow' the idea. I don't have one special way of wrapping it all depends on who it's for, what I have to use (or remember I have :-))I do like wrapping presents though and making them look good. Anne x

Great idea! Makes for a very pretty package! I'll have to borrow this idea too. :) Now what are you up to with the rest of the napkins, hmm?

What a wonderful idea of using napkins to wrap a gift. We used to have a Tuesday Morning here in our small town but lost it several years ago when the economy took a down turn. I really miss that store!

Super pretty!! I don't hesitate to use scrapbook paper to wrap little gifts, but I've never though to use napkins. Fab idea.

Kay, hello!!! So good to see you again - I've been so busy I haven't been visiting my blogger friends for ages. I always love seeing your creative projects - so gorgeous. I LOVE napkins to and they sure make for a terrific gift wrap. Brilliant idea!! Big hug to you ♥

What a beautiful napkin and such a fabulous idea! My wrapping is always rubbish - I might use your napkin idea if that is ok? I have some napkins I have been meaning to use on canvasses and cards when I get round to it! xx

I love the idea of using the napkin as wrapping paper, Kay! Your suggestion is timely. I visited a friend in Colorado in September and she had beautiful large designer napkins as hand towels in one of her guest baths and I used one to make her a thank you card. It turned out so pretty. I'm not sure if you saw that card / post. Anyway, while there I visited a store that had a lot of them on sale so I bought a dozen packs ~ way more than I could use on cards, so I appreciate your idea as another way to use them!! Hugs, Darnell

This is a lovely touch. My friend wrapped my present in a page from a calendar
