Gift wrapping is just not my thing. I always love receiving a beautifully wrapped gift, not to mention they look so much better under the tree! This year I wanted to make mine look pretty but still simple and in keeping with my style. I love the look of the brown paper packaging tied up with string. I just so happen to have a few holly bushes by the patio so that was the perfect thing to give the gifts a little color and keep it natural.
Here is also another use of the birch rounds I used for the Merry Christmas garland. I just used one of my husbands drill bits to make the hole and then used the same twine I used for the gifts to give it something to hang by.
I used a fine point sharpie to write out what I wanted. I tried to stamp it but the ink didn't take to these rounds as well and there just wasn't enough room to do it the same was I did the garland.
I used simple brown tags that I picked up at Hobby Lobby and then used my snowflake stamp with brown ink that I already had.
I love the holly. That is definitely my favorite part.
I did all my gifts this way. I like them to all match. Is that weird?
I hope you are enjoying this exciting time leading up the Christmas day. I know I am trying to make time slow down and enjoy every second. My oldest little girl is having so much fun with everything which makes this time of year soo much better!!!
