wrap it up! [2012]

With only one day left to Christmas shop, I figured a little wrapping inspiration might help get you through the heaps of goodies to wrap up and get under the tree. Wrapping presents up is always one of my favorite parts of the season.

[amazing porcelain initial tags that will become ornaments from Anthrologie's collection this year]

[ornaments made for miniature trees make a great addition to little presents] 

[vintage ornament attachments for those you know are bound to appreciate them]

[I love these kraft paper boxes with wood print and polka dots that I scored from Target's dollar section this year!]

[tie it all together with holiday yarn, candy canes, a kraft paper tag and a jingle bell]

all it takes is:
scissors and tape...of course
some solid wrapping paper, some craft paper, & some classic (usually for the kiddos)
boxes if better suited
bakers' twine and/or holiday inspired yarn
a variety of tags & a pen
candy canes, vintage ornaments, bells, etc. etc. to personalize things a bit

a peak into my gift wrap from last year

I love the old fashioned look of brown paper. This year I mostly used plain kraft paper and shipping tags I found at OfficeMax. :) Dressing them up with ribbons and trims is the perfect thing to fill up a winter night.

Love the idea of adding candy canes to the packaging. I added sprigs from my christmas tree to my packaging this year which added a nice touch. Hope you had a very merry christmas!
