Gift Wrapping Ideas!

Pin It
If you knew me you would know that I love making lists and organizing things. This holiday season, I am completely prepared for all of my gifting, diy-ing, and plans for Christmas. I'm so happy I got everything done early, so now I can just sit back and relax with a cup of tea. There is no better bliss!
But I absolutely LOVE wrapping presents! I feel that it's a way to express yourself and experiment with different ideas.
Here are how-to's on all of my gift wrappings this year! I got really creative, and yes, there are monograms of course!

For small gifts and baked goods: 

1) Decorative Take-Out Boxes: I got mine at The World Market {small: $0.69  large: $0.99}, but I'm sure other stores such as Walmart or the Dollar Tree have something similar!

I used these small ones for my girlfriend gifts. They fit perfectly! Learn how to make them here: 

These are the bigger ones I used to hold baked goods for my friends!

2) Gift Wrap: I used plain brown packaging paper to give my gift "theme" an earthy feel. Decorate with monograms, bows, and ribbons to recreate this look.

{This site has hundreds of easy printable customized monograms in so many colors. Go to the first one for the classic 3-letter script. Go to the second on for a single letter chevron. Feel free to browse for your favorites! }

Stay Classy
