How To Holidays: Simple Giftwrap

Posted by Laura

Lauren wrote a few weeks ago about fun and simple gift wrap. I wanted to piggy back that with a post about my first wrapped Christmas gift this year. It seems like I always have similar tones to the gifts I wrap each year. Last year was brown gift wrap with green & white ribbon. This year, I think it's going to look a little something like this since I am loving the pop of color with the strip of paper added...


Start with a white box...




...add some craft paper...




...and a strip of festive paper (from GHTR's Celebrate Magazine) secured with double sided tape...




...and finish off with twine and white raffia tied in a bow.



Here's another variation of a gift that I wrapped about a month ago for A&A. It's still sitting in my office since I haven't had a chance to see them since they tied the knot.



I just have to throw one more atcha. Here's a gift in a brown box with red raffia and brown twine holding it together. The square in the middle is a CD, wrapped with plain computer paper with a reindeer outline printed on it. The trick is to think outside the box (har har har).


I think I'll stop here because in the words of the great, late Steve Jobs, "I could talk about this stuff for hours"...
