Wrapping for Presents

Recently a new friend gave me a beautiful present wrapped in some funky wallpaper.
Here it is:

At the time I thought what a great idea on so many levels. 
The paper was cool and unique, it could have been left over wallpaper that you recycled for wrapping paper who knows!.
Several weeks later I was at a school fair and at the white Elephant stall I stumbled across several boxes of funky wallpaper. 
My eyes lighted up and I asked the seller "How much?"
I think the seller thought I was going to make his day, he wanted me to take the whole lot (about 30 rolls) for $15.00. I could just see Mr O's face when I turned up at home with 30 rolls of vintage wallpaper.
In the end I settled on just two.
A lady next to me was also buying some to line her shelves (she was going for the calmer colours).

This week is a week of presents a friend has had a little baby girl, another friend is celebrating a birthday and its Mothers Day on the weekend. 
So today I wrapped up all the presents in my new wrapping paper.

I was really pleased with the end result.
