By the time we're done with our holiday shopping, it's understandable that we're tempted to slap some wrapping paper around the presents, stick on a bow and tag and call it done, but, really, the wrapping part is a great time to let our creative side run amok. To help us think outside of the box (pun intended), here are some darling and easy gift-wrapping ideas that'll make our gifts stand out from the crowd.
A simple string of pom-pom trim makes this gift.
Skip the bow and make this 3D Christmas tree. HGTV tells us how. (Image #10 in the slideshow.)
Washi tape for ribbon? Absolutely.
There's a lot of coordination going on here, but the element that caught my eye was the layering of the ribbon and string.
A bit of twine, ribbon, yarn, seasonal sprigs and the morning paper and w'ere all set. (Hooray for recycling.)
Another white paper option, but this time tarted up with stickers.
I like finding new ways to make my stamps and paper-shaping machine do double duty. If you're the same, then you'll love this idea using a brown paper bag and jute bow.
