Gift Wrapping 3 Ways

It is no secret that I love wrapping presents.  I especially love the simplicity of using brown wrapping paper or kraft boxes combined with pretty ribbon or doilies.

Here are 3 simple and cute ways to gift wrap that you are welcome to steal:

Gift Wrapping Idea


Etsy Order packaging


Lace ribbon gift wrapping

1.  I used a Martha Stewart tag punch to make the tag.  The paper is actually vintage wallpaper.  The little box is from Michael’s. The doily is from Wal-Mart but you can get them anywhere really.

2.  I wrapped this up for an Etsy customer recently using brown wrapping paper.  The ribbon/bow is actually a piece of a vintage sheet that I cut up.  I love the raw messy edges of it.

3.  On this package, I used brown wrapping paper and the tag is actually a piece of craft paper.  The lace is Chantilly lace that I found on clearance at Paper Source.  This present was a bachelorette party gift (aka lingerie), so I thought the pretty lace was perfect for it.  I also thought the tag seemed symbolic of the innocence of the bride to be.  I probably think about things too much really.
