Brown Paper Packages...

... albeit not tied up with string *laughs*


I wrapped most of my Christmas gifts at the weekend. I love having wrapped gifts by the tree, everything looks so much more Christmassy once that happens.

And to fit in with my slightly more rustic decorating theme this year, I decided to go for a brown paper wrapping look. I love it (and I hope the recipients do too!)

I found all sorts of perfect ribbons to go with everything, as string seemed a step too far *laughs* And you can't really see it above, but all the gifts have the recipient's name stamped onto them in copper or silver ink.


Don't they look cute by the tree? *smiles* Sorry for the overly cropped picture, I'm trying to show them off while hiding the resulting mess!

  2. I love brown paper - last year SIL wrapped hers in brown paper with proper luggage tags and christmas baubles/snowmen/stockings etc tied on with Merry Christmas ribbons - I kept the baubles and the ribbons and they are on our tree this year. It's lovely.

  6. I've seen quite a few knitting bloggers use brown paper to wrap up packages. I opted for regular Christmas wrapping paper since I have no use for brown paper. I do love the look, though! :D

  7. Brown paper is by far the most wonderful thing to wrap in, especially with cute ribbons like the one's you used : )

  8. I think it looks great! I'm more into COMPLETELY WILD AND OVER THE TOP WRAPPING, but there's something understated about brown paper that's very appealing.

  9. Those are such great personalized gifts! I will admit, I have used waste yarn to help wrap gifts on occasion...

  10. I sort of love wrapping gifts, and I haven't started on mine at all yet this year, yikes. I looove the look of brown paper, and yours look lovely! I especially love the idea of the recipient's names stamped on in metallic ink, too.

  11. I do love that idea. Very simple, and the ribbon dresses it up very nicely (though I'd like the string, too!).
