When you get a parcel or a present i'm so one of them people that just loooooves the packaging. Even if the item inside doesn't rock my world if its been beautifully wrapped i'm all in love with it before i even open it!
There's something strangely satisfying as well about beautifully wrapping a present, i take a great deal of joy from it (is that normal) i just love making gifts look pretty!
Obviously the best time of year for wrapping is Christmas. Many people dread Christmas wrapping but really its the best, seeing all the gifts you have bought perfectly co-ordinatedly wrapped sitting under your tree. Ok ok i'm really not normal i know!
Last year was the year of brown paper wrapping for us! I used East of India christmas paper tape instead of ribbon with a lovely white East of India tag. Jade used brown kraft paper too and wrapped around cute red and white bakers twine or East of India ribbon and added a little jingle bell! Shockingly neither of us have a picture of our wrapping!! Epic fail on our parts we are photoholics haha!
But here are some christmas wrapping pics i'm in love with to get you excited and inspire you about your wrapping this year!
I loooove the photo idea but for me it looks a little boring by itself so i think this year im going to buy plain white paper with some lovely red ribbons and print a Black and White picture of the person who's gift it is and cut it into a tag shape and attach.
As you can see from the pictures brown paper is sooo easy to make look from drab to fab! And it will be way cheaper then buying lots of wrapping paper too! I know your thinking pipe down about Christmas already its only September but if you get your wrapping essentials sorted now then its one less job nearer the time as you can wrap as you buy as you will already have the stuff and its not such a mammoth task then!
Let us know what your wrapping plans are cause we are weird like that and really will get excited about it!
P.S i found these super cute free printable tags on the Chic Type blog! Go gram them i love them!!
