Hi, Everyone! So, a couple of days ago I shared my Handmade Paper Bow Tutorial with you, and I promised I would be back with some cute and creative gift wrap ideas! I had a couple of presents that I needed to wrap up, and even though I have a whole drawer full of pretty wrapping paper and ribbon, I decided to recycle some different materials and come up with fun ways to wrap the presents up! Here is what I came up with, I hope it gives you some good ideas…!
I love wrapping gifts, I always have, so this was a lot of fun for me! I hope I’ve given you some good ideas for the next time you’re wrapping a gift for someone! There’s nothing more fun than receiving a present that’s as pretty on the outside as it is once it’s unwrapped! Have a great weekend, Everybody! Happy Crafting!
I would be happy to be given any gifts by you…actually, I would be just as happy to look at gifts you are giving. My favorite is the crinkled tissue paper, gift bag handle ribbon gift.
Oohh thanks, Amy! These were so fun to wrap!
I really liked the crinkled tissue paper.. but loved all the ideas.
Your packages are GORGEOUS and your photos are just stunning! I love gift wrapping, too. <3 Christina
These are so lovely! I love the buttons and burlap! I would love for you to link this up to my “I Made This” party at Grits & Giggles! http://www.gritsandgiggles.blogspot.com/2012/04/i-made-this-2.html
Thanks for the invite, I linked up!
Oh, I love these!! Now I wish I had presents to give out just so I could wrap them.
Also, these remind me of a certain Sound of Music song. “Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens…”
“Brown paper packages tied up with string…” Glad you liked these!!!
Beautiful ideas! I love the brown with the blue. The Burlap makes a lovely trim.
Buttons! That’s brilliant. I’m pinning this post. My sister in law always has such pretty packages for birthdays. I’ve got to start learning the art. I would love if you would come share this with my readers at the new linky party I co-host. http://rhapsodyofcacophony.blogspot.ca/2012/04/pin-ed-it-made-it-party-0427.html
Love, love, love this!! Found you on Chic on a shoestring Decorating!
