In the last years, internet, craft and DIY blogging and Pinterest have lifted gift wrapping to a kind of art and craft. And, one of the things I really enjoy when I have some time to relax during Christmas preparations and other obligations, it’s to scroll down pinterest and find new gift wrapping ideas, playful and extraordinary.
This year I chose kraft paper to wrap the gifts for my nephews and nieces. Kraft paper can wrap beautifully boxes and packages with odd shapes, like these I’ve chosen for our kids. And, with extraordinary trimmings and gift tags, their look became awesome. I’ve used gift tags from recycled cardboard, colorful ribbons, string, dried plant’s parts and small paper stars that I glued on them. In one package, I cut the paper in many Christmas trees of different sizes and I glued them on it with a small star on their top.
Thus, wrapping Christmas gifts can become a lovely tradition that all the family can participate – I had my little helper to this – and put, even more, heart, joy, and creativity on the gifts for our beloved ones!!!
