a wrapping wednesday

this might make me sound like a lame-o, but one of my favorite things to do is wrap gifts.
when i was younger, i used to play "gift wrap store" and my dad would "place orders" for me to wrap gifts for him for family members, friends, co-workers.
i even had a cash register y'all...

i love the final presentation.
the way a gift is wrapped and presented just says a lot about the amount of time and thought that went into it.
what can i say, i just love pretty packages tied up with string! :)
 
yes please. black kraft paper and white chalk marker. sign me up.
 
personalized washi gift tape, genius.
perfect alternative to a gift tag: to you from me.
loving it.
 
patterned paper isn't just for scrapbookers! :)
i love how the paper ribbons are so simlar but just enough different.

ever wonder what to do with your paper grocery bags?
wrap with some cute twine, or stamp with a pretty holiday image, or use washi tape to attach a card or note.
you're golden and green!
 
i also love adding "extras" to the package, like this super fun bracelet! it's just one extra place to add a little something extra for the person you're giving to!

  1. Love all of these! I wish I could gift wrap! I can do it, but just the basic gift wrap with premade bow on top!

  2. Wrapping gifts does not make you a lame-o, I too love it! I used to beg my mom to wrap for her as a little kid. Now my skills & style have improved. Kraft paper is a must in my house, it is so easy to dress up when wrapping. Love the black paper with chalkboard markers. I will have to keep an eye out for that!

  5. I LOVE to wrap presents! Down with gift bags!! In fact, at Christmas and my girls' birthdays, I get seriously sad when I know it's the last gift to wrap. I even volunteer to wrap my own gifts (nobody can make a gift look like I can). Glad to know there's someone else who shares this madness!! :) m.
