My girls and I saw some fun ideas for gift wrapping and tags over at Style Me Pretty awhile back. We wanted to use what we had to wrap this year, so this inspired us to get creative! We gathered up scraps of fabric, twine, ribbon, fringe, fuzzy pom poms, brown grocery sacks and other things we found stashed here and there at home.
My oldest daughter cut tags out of thin cardboard and she drew a free hand reindeer (inspired by a photo she found) on the tag as a silhouette.
We used all sorts of trims, fringe, burlap, and ribbons from previous projects to create ribbons and bows.
For the paper itself, we used festive brown paper Trader Joes bags, as well as heavy duty white printer paper for the white wrap.
Doilies we picked up at HomeGoods, assorted jingle bells, buttons and decorative brads found their way on to our packages.
We didn’t have to spend a dime, but each package looked special and unique!
