It's a Wrap

Let me just start by giving a great, big HOORAY! I feel that I can officially sit back and enjoy the season because my Christmas shopping is done and most all the presents are wrapped!

I wanted to share how I decided to wrap this year. Last week I shared this photo that was my main inspiration. It caught my eye mainly because of the lovely layered effect. And secondly, I adore the addition of natural elements to packages {no surprise there} -I’ll take it all: twine, jute rope, burlap, muslin…

I also am of the mindset that presents are special and their packaging should be too! So last weekend I set out for some things to put my own “natural” flair on gifts this year. Between what I already had on hand, some goods I found on sale at Joann’s, a few pieces my mom contributed {thanks Mom!} and a hot glue gun, this was my end result…

I tried my hardest to get some natural light in these photos, but you know how it goes with getting dark at 4pm these days:(

Wow! Kate those are gorgeous! It's too late this year for my gifts, especially since most of my gifts have to get crumpled in shipping boxes or in my suitcase before they get delivered. But these are absolutely beautiful! It makes me want to make the effort even on birthday gifts and mothers day gifts. I just love the layers and the natural looks too! You're so right, presents are special and their packaging should reflect that too. Love this post, so inspirational :)
