Of course we all know that a beautifully wrapped gift makes a world of difference and adds that special elevating dimension to the entire activity of sharing.
The catch I figured is to be on the look out for interesting pieces that would work as embellishments on a gift and then execute it neatly.....there is still time before the bells begin to jingle...so happy wrapping!
This post stems from a personal experience of last minute gift wrapping and how self-defeated one feels walking in to a friend's home with a gift that could've had happier packaging. Last year at this time we had devoted double digit number of pages to a feature on Ideas for Gift Wrapping. This year again, perhaps because this is the time when gifting hits its crescendo, that wrapping ideas take center stage.
A few trawled out ideas that could be an inspiration:
|Button down a pin wheel on small individual ones|
|The Bold monochromatic|
|Collect interesting ribbons wherever you might find them|
|For Oversized Drama|
|Papers with pom poms can make it easier|
|Touch of elegance|
|From school books to gifts, just the labels are different|
|French Knots that work as knobs for drawer boxes|
|For home made cookies|
|A Neat pile|
|Lil Goodie Sacks|
|Options within a Dimension|
|Organic all the Way|
|Many ways of Combining with Brown|
|Lite n Lemoni|
|Many ways with wool and chord|
