Patterned Paper Wrapped Gifts with Michelle Philippi

I'm on this kick this year to wrap as few presents as possible with "real" wrapping paper.

I've used crafty bags and boxes, and today I've put my pretty patterned paper to use. Don't tell my daughter, but she's getting a couple of American Girl DVDs for Christmas. I thought some Beautiful Dreamer paper would work nicely for a girl gift because it's pink, and it's got that cool wintery feel to it.
Heck, the stripe one even has that candy cane feel to it!

I folded my paper around my DVDs and just marked the spot where I wanted to stamp my sentiment.
Then just wrapped it up after and the sentiment was right where I wanted it to be.

I added some coordinating pieces from the Beautiful Dreamer collection and sprinkled some chunky glitter on the edges. Tied it off with some pretty tulle and topped it with a giant rhinestone.

I tucked a Whatnot here behind the tulle and put my daughter's inital chipboard piece on the center of my bow. I have had that little k sitting on my desk for like a year - LOL!
