This year, I decided to use a boring brown paper and embellish it.
I love how it turned out.
Our natural environment is already beautiful.
Materials: Brown paper, velvet ribbon, cord, evergreen from my back garden.
Materials: Brown paper, decorative mesh, last year's deer wrapping paper.
Materials: Brown paper, cord, satin ribbon from a present last year (hence its wrinkled appearance).
I also punched some tags out of a box of KD... used double sided tape and some red paper to cover the printed side, leaving the brown side perfect for the name. Then, because I was missing a hole punch, used a needle and thread to attach the labels to the gifts.
It looks great, and it was very inexpensive too! Bonus.
Addition: Using architectural drawings for wrapping. I only remembered to take one photo. Oi. (Shakes head in dismay). I think I will wrap the partner gifts this way next year!
