and it's a wrap!

I am back with a quick post to share with you how I wrapped my gifts this year.  I was inspired by the gift wrapping I did here and decided that this year, I will be using kraft paper.  I love the look of red and kraft together.

So here is what I did this year....

I embellished my package to resemble the look of a parcel one would normally receive in the mail.  I used Papertrey’s Postmarks and 2010 Holiday Tag sets.

For the tag, I used the very adorable Tiny Treats: Christmas set (also from Papertrey).  I attempted some colouring using the few Copic markers I have on hand.  I also added a couple of bells to put some jingle on my gift.

Here are a few of them together...

Are you done with your holiday shopping and wrapping?  Which one do you enjoy more?  I finished mine last weekend.  And I must admit, wrapping makes the holidays so much more fun for me. 


  1. Love the wrapping. Looks too pretty to open. Grat tags too! I prefer to shop vs wrapping. My shopping is 95% done (just need to get stocking stuffers) Now I still have to wrap. Will do a little each day.

  2. I LOVE the wrappping, Irma, but then again I usually love everything you post up here. Where oh where do you find the time and all the energy.

  3. EEP!! This is so cute! I love wrapping in brown shipping paper too but I LOVE the idea of stamping them to look like they have really been sent.

  4. Such fun! Clever idea and you've executed it so well. I am a bit mad on postal themes too. Love it! I still need to get a bit more wrapping done, but thankfully only 2 more presents left. Phew!

  5. so cute! love your boxes and tags!
