Gift wrap can be so much more than polka dots and stripes. One brand, Cavallini, has patterns so nice you won't want to cut into them! Their papers include vintage iillustrations of cats and desserts, classic alphabet rhymes, and historic images of bicycles and chairs, all interesting (and attractive!) enough to display.
To display these lovely prints, pop them into a frame, glue them onto canvas, or even set them in large embroidery hoops. It's so easy, it's practically not DIY.
