Weekend DIY: Handmade Gift Packaging

While I like getting surprise gifts, I totally LOVE giving them. The excitement in the recipient's eyes cannot be compared to anything! I believe that 80% of the present is in its package, so I always approach the process of gift wrapping with the utmost care. 

Here are two sweet tutorials on how to make your own packaging and leave an unforgettable impression!
