A Few Ideas...

The countdown is on! Only a few more days until Christmas! Are you as excited as I? Just in case you're in gift wrapping mode, and perhaps are in need of some fresh inspiration, here are a few ideas for you...

* A few cuts with an x-acto knife and with the addition of some sweet ribbon, you have a customized gift box! Use a black or a funky color cord to create a masculine looking version.
* While you're enjoying some Christmas movies, fold some simple, thick white wrapping paper into folds for a feminine and fancy, pleated look.
* Re-purpose little ornament bags or gather soft pieces of tulle for a delicate envelope for cookies, earrings, or even a gift card. They dress up a gift in such a simple way. Tie with a little glam ribbon.

Don't you just love that quote? I couldn't agree more...Sometimes I find that the more pressure I feel, the more inspired I get to get creative with my gift wrapping. Do you have any fun gift wrapping ideas that you have tried this year?

  1. Love these photos, they must be Victoria Mag, am I right? That white linen chair is just beautiful! I am on a burlap kick at the moment and my choc sauce is wrapped with a bit of burlap and a sprig of rosemary from my garden (photos tomorrow at tys!) Hope you are having a good christmas Sarah!

  2. Oh, sounds lovely, Mary Jo! I cannot wait to see what you have created :)

  3. I love using ribbon with wire so I can shape it into a beautiful bow. If the bow gets smashed, I can just reshape it!
