holiday wrapping

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is wrapping the packages.  I know I’m a little crazy because it seems like a lot of work just for someone to rip it open and throw those ribbons and paper in the trash.  However, I think the presentation is just as important as the actual present.  When you receive a beautifully wrapped box, you know something even more special is inside.

Here are a few ideas I’m using for holiday wrapping this year…

I love the saying on this paper, and the black striped ribbon with wood chalkboard tags is a nice contrast.

The JOY tag with the peppermint candy is just what this brown kraft paper needs for some fun whimsy.

This black striped gold polka dot paper adds some elegance under the tree.  I added some more gold dots to the gift tag with washi tape.

Ho ho ho…what about these Santa suit tags created from soda can tabs and some black ribbon!

For a vintage look, I added a white distressed key to the red ribbons and brown kraft paper.

So simple and elegant…red, green, and gold with a fun initial on the gift tag.

My personal favorite…red polka dots with a Rudolph tag (yes, it’s made from a peanut shell)!

So get the tape, bows, and wrapping paper ready…it will be time to get those presents wrapped and under the tree soon!
