You may have seen the post that Emily wrote a few weeks back showing you DIY gift wrap ideas using everyday materials. Well. . . she inspired me. Last night I sat on my living room floor and pulled together all kinds of inspiration I had been collecting to wrap my holiday gifts. First of all, I have this thing about my holiday gifts and tree coordinating with my decor. Yes, I am one of those. This last year my living space morphed into a yellow and gray color palette, with a few greens and teals mixed in. I like non-traditional holidays, so yellow and gray holiday wrap fits my taste perfectly! I started by wrapping all my gifts with a roll of craft painter paper I had picked up at Home Depot. Ahhh, brown paper packages. . . I then printed on two sides of standard printer paper a few patterns, illustrations and solid colors to coordinate with my look. Armed with scissors, scotch tape, a tag punch, my sewing machine and leftover ribbon and twine I got to work. This is what I came up with:
Stay tuned for my all-paper (plus lights) holiday tree decorations! I am having too much fun. Cheers! Lia
