My Christmas Gift Wrap–It’s All In The Details

Christmas Gift Wrap Inspiration

Can we talk Christmas gift wrap for a minute?  

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while you all know that I am a bit of a snob when it comes to gift wrap and ribbon.  I don’t have anything against gift bags but when it comes to wrapping gifts, I whole-heartedly believe that the presentation of a gift adds to the entire gift giving experience.

When it came time to come up with a gift wrap plan for Christmas, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Paper Mart.  Paper Mart is a proud sponsor of the 2016 Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour and they had everything I needed to make my gift wrap dreams come true.

Last year I created this mobile gift wrap cart to hold my holiday paper and ribbons.  I pulled it out again this year and stocked it with all my supplies.  You can read all about how I created the cart here.

There are lots of things I love about Paper Mart  including their vast range of wrapping paper, ribbon, embellishments, boxes and tissue paper.  They have wrapping paper for every gift occasion and a great offering of  party supplies.

The foundation of my gift wrap plan was this beautiful Pinecones & Poinsettia gift wrap.  There are lots of colors in this paper so I knew I could mix and match it with other wrapping paper and ribbons.

I’m a fan of two-sided ribbon and used the red and gold satin ribbon above to create a layered bow.  I tucked my favorite holly leaf embellishments under each corner of the bow.

For this box, I layered the poinsettia paper over a small black and white plaid paper.

I used this gold metallic ribbon around a few solid colored boxes that I had.  The gold has a shimmer to it and is pretty when tied in a multi loop bow.

The pretty package embellishment is a vintage brooch I pulled out of my jewelry stash.

I paired the poinsettia paper with a black and white striped paper and love this look.  The embellishments on top are honeycomb tissue paper balls that I taped to the top of the belly band.  Belly band is a fancy name for a piece of paper that wraps around something. #ribbonlingo

This natural holly leaf ribbon is so pretty and you can see the beautiful bows you can make with it.  I added some small gold ornaments in the center for a little sparkle.

I shared my Christmas tree in part 1 of the Merry & Bright Home Tour and matched some of the colors on the tree with the colors in the poinsettia paper. And I used the black and white plaid ribbon on the tree and for my Christmas gift wrap.

  1. Beautiful gift wrapping! You have inspired me to ditch the gift bags (a few) and wrap some gifts. I can’t wait to order my products from Paper Mart.

    • Thanks Marsha. I’ll show you how to make your own gift bags the next time I come for a visit.
