What You’ll Need:
The deal queen strikes again: I got my holiday twine from Michael’s for less than $3.50 (what’s up 70% off?!) and I snagged the little holiday trinkets from PCCR for literally next to nothing.
I can’t explain when and why I developed a hatred for tacky Christmas wrapping paper, but for the past three years I have wrapped all of my Christmas gifts in a simple, plain Kraft paper and styled it up with some ribbon and trinkets. I guess I’m just really drawn to the “brown paper packages tied up with string” vibe. Where my Sound of Music fans at?!
This year, I of course stuck with my Kraft paper tradition but got a little more creative with some personalization. I ditched the name tags and added a little sentimental touch with polaroid prints. You can get polaroid style prints from a hundred different sites, but these guys came from Inkifi. I was super happy with the quality, price, and experience. They were delivered in less than a week! For a truly sentimental approach, you could also use real polaroids or old photos. Dig out those photos albums!
This look turned out super cute for all of my boxed gifts and was pretty simple. Here's the rundown:
1. Wrap your gift/gift box in Kraft paper
2. Tie up the box with twine or ribbon
3. Clip a clothes pin onto the twin/ribbon
4. Clip in the polaroid photo
5. Add any extra trinkets
I’m also gifting a couple bottles of wine. For those, I threw on a ribbon and one of my homemade cork Christmas tree ornaments. What are your gift wrapping tricks, trips, and ideas? Drop them in a comment below!
