HoLIDAY WRAPPING 101

Christmas is in one week! Can you believe that!? It sure did sneak up on me but I am so excited & not to mention...broke. This year I discovered I have an addiction to ribbon. I collect many different styles, sizes & patterns. I seem to have accumulated more christmas ribbon this year, than I ever have. I also discovered that wrapping gifts can get more & more elaborate because I keep finding more & more things to add on.

I take a lot of time wrapping my gifts, mainly for the creative aspect, but also for the look on peoples faces when they receive a gift from me. Some don't even want to open it because they love the wrapping so much. I love making their gift that much more special.

First things first, I use brown kraft paper to wrap gifts. This gives me free range to add on whatever I want. You can easily use just kraft paper & the perfect ribbon, but I like to step it up a bit by adding paper doilies, seasonal stamps, bells & ornaments.

I love the white doilies because they resemble snow flakes & add a feminine touch to the wrapping. This year I have been swooning over plaids, deers & earthy themed anything. So it seemed suiting to add that in to my wrapping, with a touch of glitter.

These looks so perfect under the Christmas tree. I hope this post inspires you to get creative with your gifts. One week of shopping left for all those last minuters! Get going!!
