With Christmas only a few days away, I figured I should get around to finally posting something holiday related! Last month I was super inspired by Amanda’s post about DIY wrapping paper over on her blog, Wit & Whistle, and subsequently I invested in the BIGGEST roll of kraft paper I’ve ever seen. Seriously, Amanda said it was big, but damn. I needed help hauling it inside and it’s gonna last me about 5 years longer than I expected!
I was really excited about the idea of customizing each gift individually. Using classic red and white baker’s twine, ribbon, handlettered names on cardstock tags, a white marker, and washi tape, each box was decorated with love. A huge perk to this project was the ecofriendliness of it all, and I was able to amp it up by combining the recyclable kraft paper with homemade felt bows (made using this tutorial). I’ve got nothing against store-bought wrapping paper, but when you got red and green stripes with blue snowmen and rainbow ribbons, you have to admit, coordinating gifts just look SO much better.
Haha, I told you it was massive! 😉 I love how your gifts turned out. Especially those felt bows—so awesome!
shoot, you weren’t kidding! thank you! 🙂
[…] Something to lay under your work area for easy clean up – newspapers would work great. I used some of the kraft paper I ordered for this project. […]
