Creative Gift Wrapping by Geninne

I love gift wrapping because it's a creative endeavor that anyone can enjoy. It's infinitely customizable to your own tastes and the tastes of the person you are giving the gift to. For an example of how beautifully gift wrapping can reflect a person's style, see these beautiful images from Geninne of Geninne's Art Blog.

Just gorgeous! She scanned a small painting she made, then repeated the image a few times in Photoshop. The result is a design large enough to use for creative gift wrapping, not to mention gift wrap that exudes her signature nature imagery and love of life. It just makes me happy to look at it.

For more of Geninne's lovely work, see her blog and Etsy shop.

  1. How adorable. I love how the personality comes out. I really want to get creative in my wrapping, but I'm admitting that I am already behind on my xmas shopping. It seems like some years it comes so easily and others it's quite overwhelming.

  2. I am particularly fond of this wrapping. My husband and I have a LARGE salt water aquarium in our living room. I would love to wrap some of his Christmas Presents in this wrapping paper. CUTE!

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by The Bella Life blog and leaving a message this week. I would love to highlight your blog next week because you have some lovely gift wrapping ideas. Would that be okay with you?


  3. I love the design of her paper! Makes me want to experiment with hand-drawn/painted designs more. Reminds me of the fabric design challenge on Project Runway. Very cool.

  4. @Kelly - I feel you, girl. The reason I'm not posting my own Christmas gift wrapping is because I need to get the gifts first! I have a list and am collecting requests, but agree it can be overwhelming.

    @The Bella Life - Didn't Geninne do a lovely job? Not all of us can paint our own gift wrap designs, but I just had to share this for the joy it exudes.

    You are always welcome to write about The Gifted Blog, no permission needed! I just ask that you link back to me when you do. Thanks in advance!

    @Betsy - Isn't it cool? This is just one of those "wow" ideas. And nice comparison w/ Project Runway - there's actually a gift wrapping contest sponsored by Scotch (of Scotch tape) that reminds me of a gift wrapper's version of PR...but they haven't asked anyone to design their own gift wrap yet! Maybe in 2011. : )
