Enter to win!! Personalized/Custom #Pet Wrapping Paper from Giftskins!

Tis the season to begin wrapping...fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-UGH!!! The paper bag and tissue industry experiences a boom every year when I get gifts ready for the holidays, or for any occasion that requires a gift...UNTIL NOW...enter...Giftskins!

Click here to visit their website!!


I was intrigued when I was contacted by an incredibly delightful and helpful representative of Giftskins who asked if I would be interested in featuring their personalized wrapping paper on Cody's blog.  She "had me" when she steered me towards their Personalized Pet Wrapping Paper page!
I was like a kid in a candy store! What pet parent/owner DOESN'T want to see their pet featured on wrapping paper?

The design choices are adorable, which made it difficult to choose just one, but I FINALLY chose the Paw Print Stripes Gift Wrap, because I wanted wrapping paper that would be good for ALL occasions, not just for the holidays! Here is the style that I chose BEFORE it was customized with Cody's photo:


From Giftskins.com: "Have everyone howling with your own greeting and up to 4 unique photos. Measures 19.75 x 76.75in. One roll will wrap three medium size gifts."

The customization process of this paper could NOT have been easier! I picked out the style that I wanted, chose the photo that I wanted to include, followed the super easy instructions for  adding a photo, and I was off to the races! I was shocked and pleased by how quickly a  proof was sent to me for my approval, the ENTIRE process was a breeze!

Here it is!

The photo does NOT do this paper justice (mostly due to photographing it with my iPhone). I haven't wrapped my gifts yet that I will be using this paper for, but wanted to give you an idea of just how CATABULOUS this wrapping paper is!

When the full size roll of gift wrap arrived at my home, (which was also fast!), I was delighted with the quality. This paper is NOT flimsy, it will not tear with the slightest movement, as many inferior wrapping paper products do. The wrapping paper  is a substantial, sturdy weight that held up well with the many contortions that I go through when wrapping a gift! While it is NOT flimsy, it also is easy to work with. On the opposite side of the paper is a grid that makes cutting the paper into a straight line (for smaller packages) easy peasy! Even for me! No more jagged cutting! I can cut it into a straight line!

Who WOULDN'T want to open a gift featuring the adorable Cody? While the gift wrap is FABULOUS for ALL gift-giving occasions, I was also thinking about how cool this would be as a background in a photo frame! You could trim the paper to fit a large frame and then put various small photos all around it and frame it! You could cover books with it, use it for scrapbooking, etc!

Thanks to Giftskins I am now going to kiss my dull gift bags and tissue paper good-bye. "They had me at hello..."

YOU will LOVE them TOO! WHY? Because my incredibly kind and helpful representative at Giftskins is offering a GIVE-AWAY!  ONE of my readers who lives in the U.S. will win their OWN full-size roll of customized wrapping paper! (Wrapping paper prices begin at $14.95)

THE GIVE-AWAY IS OPEN TO THOSE LIVING IN THE U.S. that are 18 and over. The give-away is open now and will end on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10th AT 5PM. The lucky winner will be chosen by www.random.org and will be announced on WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 11th.

In Full Disclosure: I was not compensated for this review/give-away, I was given a roll of wrapping paper in exchange for my honest review.
