Are you a wrapping paper ripper, or one of those people who delicately, tenderly removes each bit of tape and folds the paper to save for another day? If you're of the latter persuasion, the beautiful designs at Paper Source, including our fave new print, Lotus Flower Wrapping Paper ($2-8) will be your new obsessions. Candy-pink lotuses bloom on a pale blue background with swirling vines, making it a great option for wrapping birthday or "just because" gifts. And, for a fun DIY project, purchase several different funky wrapping papers along with some small vintage frames. Spray paint the frames different colors, then put paper in instead of pictures and group them together for a shabby chic pop art installation for your wall.
