it's a wrap [gift wrapping ideas]

Sunday, November 28, 2010

i love wrapping presents and especially for the holiday season there are tons of creative ways to adorn the simplest precious gift to make the gift wrapper just as unforgettable as the gift itself. i am especially partial to using leftover craft materials that are stored in your house. you'll be surprised that buttons, extra tinsel, doilies, old ornaments and recycled old christmas cards are perfect little hanging accessories for your gifts!

tie gift tags with baker's twine, scrap fabric and extra ribbons for an added special touch. wrap your gifts with kraft paper, old newspaper, decorative tapes, glassine and colored craft paper for a more original one-of-a-kind gift wrapping!
