Wrapping Ideas

 I hope that you are all having the most wonderful week. 
We had all of our family over for a Christmas celebration and it was so much fun.
We started the day out sledding at an absolutely enormous hill and then came back to celebrate.
So many great memories were made.

I thought I would share some thrifty wrapping ideas with you.




I love to wrap with things that I have on hand...brown paper packages being one of my favorites.
I usually buy the paper at the local Dollar Store in the mailing department. 

Fabric ribbon is so inexpensive, and paired with a little holly it really makes a nice statement.
Just cut strips from your favorite {or scrap} fabrics and leave the edges unfinished. 


The last few years I have enjoyed using newspaper.
After all, we all have it laying around, and what better way to use it up!
All of my ribbon came from Walmart and was under $2 a roll. I love the chartreuse satin and grosgrain is one of my all-time staples. 


Natural elements are cheap and a wonderful accent. 
The little tags can be printed HERE. 
Aren't they sweet?
I also make these tags on my printer... 


The images are from The Graphics Fairy.



My sister Charity is hosting a wonderful party on wrapping ideas. 
You can find more fun ideas and visit her HERE. 


Happy Holidays!

I just found your blog via Pinterest, and I love it! I am especially interested in your Homemade Christmas Post. I have hundreds of shipping tags and di not know that could be printed on (Graphics Fairy images). Can you explain how you did this? I'll be looking at your blog from now on. I'm hooked! Thanks!
