wrap it up

{ 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 }
This year I wanted to showcase my gifts in wrappings that had a homey, "made with love" aesthetic... kraft paper, twine, & mixed-&-matched washi/fabric tape made my wrapping dreams come true. 
Usually, I find the gift tag options lacking, but I loved all of the free printable gift tag options that I found on Pinterest this year { many rounded up here }, and chose 3 that fit with my wrapping style.
Even though the cashier at CVS said that my kraft paper was "hipster wrapping paper", I love this clean, under appreciated medium. I am obsessed with dressing up brown paper with some fun glitter ribbon & girlie pom-poms or luxe velvet ribbon & sparkling pipe cleaners (maybe next year!).

Are your presents wrapped and ready to go?
How did you clothe your gifts this year?

  3. Love your gift wrapping idea!  I always match the color scheme of my wrapping, with our Christmas tree.  It can be difficult at times to find coordinating colors, but I'm always up for the challenge.  Great job!

  10. I do kraft paper almost every year - I love how you can change it up and personalize it. And who doesn't love brown paper packages?! Next year definitely considering washi tape embellishments - yours look great!
