Gift Wrapping Fun


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.
