The alternative title for today’s post could be, “if you’re type A and you know it clap your hands.”
Let’s just call a spade a spade—I’m really particular when it comes to wrapping gifts. I love how cohesive it looks under the tree when presents are wrapped in the same paper, and I especially love kraft paper. Of course, it is fun to have some variation so I generally stick to the same paper but spruce them up with different accessories and gift tags—four of which I am going to highlight today.
While I opt for plain kraft paper most of the year, around Christmas last year, I discovered this beautiful red polka dotted kraft paper in the dollar spot, and literally drove to three different Targets in the area to stock up. This year, Target offered a similar line of paper in the dollar spot that featured green and red polka dots, and I love how festive, yet classy, this look is.
ONE // the very berry method—I bought several different colors of faux berries at Hobby Lobby this fall when Monica and I were in Dallas. They came with three branches per stem, so using wire cutters, I cut them into individual trimmings and hot glued them onto packages. Easy and stunning (ly simple). I put a gold gift tag on the bottom to identify the recipient, and me as the giver.
TWO // the monogram method—Perhaps the easiest way to jazz up a present: find big gold letters to spell out someone’s initial or monogram. This one with an “m” is for my Mom, but for my sisters, I included all three letters of their monogram.
THREE // the jingle bell method—This method was so easy, and would be really fun for little kids. I took simple red and white twine and wrapped it around the box like I usually would. On the last loop around before I tied it off, I strung on some jingle bells.
FOUR // the all gold everything method—I am a sucker for all things gold, so when I saw gold glitter gift tags in Hobby Lobby on that same trip, I knew these were coming home with me. Wrap the twine around the package, and tie the gift tag on at the end. Instant holiday bling!
