While I’ve shown you some of my personal tricks of the trade when it comes to gift wrapping, it’s been a while since I did a round-up on the packaging that inspires me. So many beautiful and creative ways people and wrapping gifts!
Enjoy the eye candy (and the tips I’ve included)!
Wrapping with a color theme in mind is a great way to keep the overall look cohesive but interesting.
Always keep a lookout for paper, fabric and ribbon flowers at the craft stores. They are a great way to add pizzaz to simple wrap. P.S. check the hair accessory area in store for inexpensive flowers on pin and clips too!
I love this combination of bold, graphic wrapping paper with solid colored satin ribbons. Easy elements to keep on hand for a quick gift wrap job!
Create paper buckles from decorative scrapbook paper, add ribbon and wrap! So chic for the holidays!
Creating pretty packaging has a lot to do with thinking outside the box. Here, a strip of candy buttons was used to create a bow for a gift bag and pretzels were added along with yarn to dress up a plain gift bag.
Just about anything can be used to create a beautifully wrapped gift. Keep your eyes open for bargain utensils, buttons and round containers while you’re out thrifting.
p.s. love the embellishment created from cupcake wrappers (top photo)!
Pom Poms on a stick…so adorable! A great fall wrapping idea!
For some reason I have a slew of old stamps and just have never put them to use. This great package above gives me inspiration for a unique way to seal gift wrap.
Scott Antique Market, which I attend each month has a slew of plastic vintage buckles for $1.00 or less. I love the idea of putting these to use with pretty ribbon.
Adore this wrap. Sheet music and vintage baubles which can be found at yard sales and flea markets for a song!
Another color coordinated look with solid paper and varied embellishments. The details are what count!
A truly fabulous was to turn a plain white box into a stunning package! Add buttons and ribbon!
I’ve stacked up on paper dollies (which are very inexpensive) and adore this vintage inspired gift wrap they help to create above and below!
If you’re into beautiful gift wrap like me, you’ll want to be sure and check out one of my favorite on-line paper sources, Paper Mojo. I just ordered a slew of new papers and can’t wait to get them in my hands.
I have a few gifts I’m in the process of wrapping and will share the finished looks with you on Saturday. It involves buckles, pins and clips.
Now, go wrap something beautiful!
