When I was putting together a post for Laura Ashley with five super cute ways to use offcuts of wallpaper, wrapping and gift boxes seem to be an obvious but really useful choice. In fact, having wallpaper samples littered across various rooms of my house has saved me from many a lack-of-wrapping-paper crisis over the past few months (not really a crisis ... that's quite dramatic ... more of an 'argh, we need to leave for the birthday party right now and I've got nothing to wrap the present in' moment - Top tip: Marvel wallpaper is cheaper than wrapping paper in the long run and you can do so, so many other things with it).

If you read my recent bathroom makeover post, you might remember that I've been working on a little project with Laura Ashley all to do with wallpaper. Today, the post is live on their blog and you can pop on over and see what I've been up to. Hint: it's not papering walls. I tried that and it ended in complete and utter disaster (luckily, I have an expert popping round next week to put right what I completely messed up - I'll share some photos when it's all finished and looking lovely).
