'Tis the Season

When it comes to wrapping presents, I'm a firm believer in more is more. I love piles of bows, ribbon, sparkly things, and pretty paper. Behold these spectacular images of gift wrapping inspiration.

There are so many handmade and eco-friendly options out there. Oh yeah, and I am that crazy person who carefully removes wrapping paper and bows so that they can be reused over and over again. It'a a lot more fun to rip it open, I know, but I gotta do my part to be green.

I found a great tutorial on how to make recycled paper flowers (to use as bows) and another one on how to make a gift bag out of newspaper (both from How About Orange).

  1. Lovely ideas. All of them. I'm finding myself drawn to kraft paper these days. The simplicity of the paper really allows the decorations and adornments to stand out.
