Wrapping Your Books

If you follow me on instagram (Carmel_ourfifthhouse) then you know I scored a couple of super cute rolls of wrapping paper at Target.  I couldn't just store them away with all of my gift wrapping supplies.  I had to use them.

I wrapped some old books to give my lanterns a little more height.

This herringbone pattern is just too much fun.  I want to wrap everything in it!  I wrapped each book in a different direction just to add a little extra interest.

From a distance, at first glance, they look like decorative boxes.  I love simple inexpensive updates.  It took all of maybe 10 minutes to wrap 4 books.  Wrapping paper has got it going on right now.  I can't wait to show how I used the other print I scored!

Have any pretty papers jumped into your shopping cart lately?

  4. Cute! I thought about wrapping my books (all of them) last night when I had my kraft paper out but the process seemed too daunting. But I could just start with a few, right? :)
