I love to get creative with gift-wrapping
no matter what the occasion.
This holiday market season, I stuck with neutral colors for my market displays
and chose some papers that reflected this palette.
I mixed some of my products and some natural and recycled materials as well.
This striped paper and patterned paper are both from HomeSense and cost $4.99 per roll.
Some natural twine, some eucalyptus
and a stamped silver spoon
add some nice texture and shine to the box.
This 'Je T'aime' spoon is tied to the gift with
a scrap of leather.
Look around your home to find some
different materials to recycle;
maybe some denim, velvet or wool.
These two gifts are adorned with vintage chandelier crystals of different shapes. So pretty!
The sparkles and tiny letters in the above photo; and the sheet music paper and
LOVE letters are from Brick & Mortar Living
in New Westminster.
Want in on a secret?
This kraft paper is actually from a large roll of
Builder's Paper made from 100% recycled paper
available at Home Depot.
A 36" roll of 167 feet is $18.47 and is sure to last a long time! My kids love to make large murals with this paper
and I like to use it for gift-wrapping
or to protect the table when painting.
We are on our third year of using the same roll.
The paper is adorned with an one of our vintage hand-crocheted ornaments. These were made from a vintage blanket and are adorned with Swarovski crystals.
Hope this inspired you to get creative, save some money and add some interesting materials to your gift-wrapping.
