I love the clean, homey look of brown kraft paper tied up with cotton string, so this year, all my gifts got this simple treatment. I added a yarn pom pom to each package (yes, I know I am obsessed), and I think this little touch adds a bit of warmth and coziness, don’t you? I also designed gift tags using a birch tree design I hand-sketched, then printed with gray ink on gray paper. I finished off the tags with a narrow strip of woodgrain textured paper (hard to see in the photos, I know), and a simple to/from written in blank ink. For several of the gifts, I used small to-go boxes that were leftover from a project this summer. Nothing better than re-purposing unused stuff, right? I’ll admit I am a tad bit smitten with the gift-wrapping theme this year… sweet and simple!
