I don’t know about you, but I am up to my ears in wrapping paper and holiday gifts. Each night, I devote about thirty minutes to an hour to wrapping gifts for friends and family so that each gift is ready for its respective gathering. I know this may sound strange, but I actually enjoy wrapping gifts. I find it somewhat relaxing and like to find creative ways to make each gift look extra festive and special. This year, my new wrapping obsession is craft paper. It is so versatile and wallet friendly. I like the natural look of the craft paper and how I can dress it up with basically any embellishment. I also am enjoying wrapping my holiday gifts in a more subtle and chic way this holiday season. Below are some ideas that inspired my gift-wrapping making for some fabulous DIY holiday creations:
Wrapping presents doesn’t need to be a chore. I try to look at it as a fun arts and crafts project and a small creative outlet. While the ideas here may seem a little muted or low key, I like to think of them as my fashion-forward way of wrapping holiday presents this year. I am also so excited that I discovered craft paper! I bought three rolls and now I am stocked up for all occasions for 2013; all I need are the embellishments.
