Wrapping and ribbons and bows, oh my!

17 Dec

Confession: I LOVE wrapping gifts. Even though it will be ripped to shreds in a few seconds, I like spending time to make each package look pretty. This year I’m going the more traditional route with Kraft paper, but there is still a lot you can do to make each gift unique.

Here are a few wrapping ideas:

-Seasonal Foliage-

Berry Present  | www.the-wild-child.com

I had some fake berries left over from my Halloween costume that I added to a few packages. Pine cones or an evergreen bough tied with ribbon would also look nice.

-Puffy Paint-

Need I say more? Doesn’t puffy paint make any craft project better? Just be careful to apply lightly so it doesn’t soak through the paper. You could also use a metallic marker.


Stickers Present  | www.the-wild-child.com

I own an unreasonable amount of stickers for a 26-year-old, but I just can’t help it. I bought these adorable ones from Rifle Paper Co. last year, and I still love them.

You can always keep it simple by adding a nice ribbon. Sometimes simple is best.

Happy wrapping!
