One of our favorite parts of holiday gift-giving is making each package really special. We've gathered some of our best tips to inspire you as we start the wrapping...
Look for glittered chipboard letters at the craft store...with the addition of a few glue dots, they become super-sparkly gift tags worth keeping!
Giftwrap in a snap! Fold down the top of a goodie-filled treat bag, punch two holes, one inch apart, in the center of the fold and slip a candy cane through the holes...super simple!
Make gift wrapping sweet & simple...tuck cookbooks into tea towels and tie with kitchen string.
For any pampering gift, tuck your goodies into a handmade bath mitten! Fold a washcloth in half; sew 2 sides closed, leaving the last side open. Sew on a loop and place the gift inside...perfect for homemade soaps, scrubs or lotions!
Look for vintage buckles and brooches at tag sales and give a special present some sparkle! Just wrap in coordinating paper and thread wide ribbon through...so pretty!
Kids will love finding little surprises tucked into old-fashioned crackers. Just fill a cardboard tube with an assortment of candies, trinkets and confetti. Wrap it all up in colorful paper and tie the ends up with ribbon!
Giving a special spice mix, tea or cocoa? Slip it inside this easy-to-make fabric envelope! Lay a square dinner napkin flat, fold three corners to the center and handstitch together, forming an envelope. Once filled, fold the fourth corner down to close. Add a button and a twist of ribbon to secure!
Stock up on plain or solid-color paper gift bags and dress them up yourself! Add a vintage postcard, a little rick-rack or ribbon...add some stamped tissue and the wrapping will make any gift memorable.
Top off any gift with a bright ribbon flower. Cut 5 strips of 6-inch long ribbon, then cut each end into a "V" shape. Stack the ribbons together and tie in the middle with a small wire. Thread floss through a button and tie to the center over the wire. Twist and spread the ribbons apart to make a round flower.
Make a snowman bag! Just fold down the top of a white lunch sack and round the edges with scissors. Add eyes and a mouth using a black pen. Glue on a nose cut from orange craft foam and top him off with an baby's winter hat!
