The prettiest of paper wrapped presents
all stacked together under the tree makes a beautiful display
and choosing those papers wisely can make them part of the decoration.
Since it is mad dash shopping and wrapping time as Christmas is just over a week away
I thought I would share some of my favorites
for making all those presents pretty for gift giving
and while they are under the tree.
#1. Red & White
Red & white stripes wrapped with a soft pale pink bow-
sigh... it's simply love.
This paper is pretty enough to leave just as it is but add
a reindeer ornament as a package topper
and it is perfection.
#2 Shoot for the Stars
Simple gold with white stars- seriously another favorite paper this year.
I love the simplicity and yet glam feeling this one has.
Gold and silver papers are always a dazzling hit- and they don't have to be shiny.
Subtle matte metallics are perfect for an understated elegance
Tie with a grosgrain ribbon and a sprig of cedar.
Oh this Santa paper- seriously adorable.
Brown paper printed with a muted pattern is so sweet and charming
for a whimsical feeling under the tree. I love the simplicity of the paper
and the pattern that lets the charm of the rustic Santa scene come through.
#4. Gilded Hearts
This is actually not a traditional wrapping paper- I found it at the craft store
and it was just a printed art paper.
But who says wrapping paper has to be wrapping paper?
I thought it would be perfect for a few gifts
for the photos in Romantic Lifestyle Magazine
when there was no holiday wrapping paper to be found yet.
#5. Brown Paper Packages
Tied up with strings... or a satin ribbon :)
Brown painters paper is perfect for a rustic chic look under your tree.
It is economical as you can buy a huge amount in a roll at Lowe's and use it on
a ton of packages. For a little shabby elegance- tie with a satin ribbon and top with a dried rose.
#6. Simple Whites
Another easy one and you can mix and mingle patterns like subtle stripes
and embossing. Keep your ribbons a similar color- but vary the sizes
and add a pop of color like the red berries to white packages for an extra special touch.
#7. Scandinavian Christmas
Mr. Reindeer again, because I love him on this one too.
The soft Scandinavian pattern on this paper is so pretty
and mixing the red stripes with this one creates a charming display.
