That’s a Wrap!
A few years ago, I was asked to wrap a few empty boxes for a Christmas photo shoot for a local magazine. Reading the published article made me realize how special it truly is to receive not only a well-thought out gift, but to have it beautifully presented as well. Perhaps, taking the time to painstakingly wrap each gift will reward you with a bit of that lost gratification.
This blog post is to show how easy it is to make packages beautiful by using a variety of papers (some hand-made and some store purchased), ribbons and accessories found around the home. I love using a variety of papers and making each package different.
Christmas gift wrap doesn’t have to be themed or traditional Christmas colors. I use papers I collect all year around and add festive embellishments.
Play some holiday music to keep you in the Christmas mood (iheartradio has a station called North Pole Radio — it offers a great variety of old and new songs that will definitely have you singing along)! This is especially helpful for when you lose your tape or wrap a present and forget who it is for, and have to unwrap and re-wrap!
Be creative and have fun!!!!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to each and every one of you!
