Gift Wrapping Inspiration

The holidays are a perfect time to express your inner creativity. Now that the tree is trimmed and the stockings hung, it's time for the gifts! With the holiday decor looking perfect, why not accessorize with beautifully wrapped gifts? Red, white and kraft. The natural look is an easy and lovely way to go. Use some gardening or bakers twine to tie up crisply wrapped packages adding a few berries or a bit of pine.

Colorful and girly. Mix, match, and layer patterned paper adding a few layers of a simple ribbon. Accessorize a few gifts with some colorful buttons or playful flowers.

Use a deep purple base and add some gold ribbon and sparkling berries for a bit of glamour. Add purple to your natural packaging with some pretty flowers. Tie them up with twine to give them that organic look.

Go completely neutral and simple with kraft and white. Add some lace to a simply wrapped package for that vintage feel.

Add some sparkle to blue and white gift wrapping with a bit of silver tinsel or use a few paper doilies to give your gifts some more texture.
