Wrapping gifts were an Olympic sport, I’m pretty sure I’d be selected to represent my country. I went on a wrapping bonanza this weekend and taped up, tied, and adorned packages for hours. Every year I pick a color palette so my gifts have a ‘theme’ and this year I decided to pick some classic colors — lots of reds and whites, with touches of kraft paper and Christmas greens. I got great papers at Target (the fair isle print is from the dollar-bin, and chevron is from the regular wrapping section!), and added in some accent papers from Paper Source (the wood grain) and TJ Maxx (the plaid — that I’m in love with!). And I mixed up the ribbons with a combination of bakers twines and leftover silk ribbons from years past. I’m so happy how they all look together!
Gorgeous. You are WAY more committed to this process than me. By Christmas, I’m run down and DONE. Sticky bows and I are friends. It’s true – I’ll admit it. 😉
Those are all for me, right!?
That fair isle paper is to die for! So perfect and cute! And from the dollar bin?! Perfection.
Love the classic theme Kate! They all look
So classically festive!
