Peppermint Themed Christmas Gift Wrap

Those who know me know that I never do things simply. It's just not who I am. I like to to go over-the-top in just about everything I do. It's a way to exercise and express my creativity... especially when it comes to gift wrap. Some may think it wasteful and excessive, but who doesn't like to receive a pretty package?!

This year I went with a peppermint, red and white theme (Christmas tree included). Candy canes, peppermint swirls, red and white stripes... these elements were prevalent throughout my gifts. Oh, and lots of red glitter (tee hee hee). In past years, I've ordered specialty papers from Paper Source and Kate's Paperie, but this year almost all of my wrap, ribbons, and embellishments came from Michaels or JoAnns.
