Gift Wrap Fun

November 18th, 2011

Howdy all!  I don’t know about you, but it has sure been a busy week for me.
I am definitely looking forward to heading to the farm for 4 days for Thanksgiving next week.  🙂

I thought I’d wrap up this week with some gift wrapping ideas.
When I came up with my topic idea,
maybe it was wishful thinking that I’d have all my gifts purchased.

Oops!  I have 1 gift, with a few more to get yet.  Which means nothing wrapped!
Oh well, you’ll get the idea.

A few years ago, I believe I got the idea from Martha Stewart
to wrap my gifts in brown or white paper,
and then finish it off with ribbon {which can be reused}
or other accessories/tags/doilies/etc.

Since I have made the change from regular wrapping paper to brown and white paper,
I have seen lots of fun ideas.

Your options are endless!

Ribbon, bakers twine, scrapbook paper, lace, doilies, decorative tape, balloons,
material scraps, rubber stamps, paint chips, buttons, paper bags, newspaper,
pages of old books, and whatever else you find that you like.

Of course you will need some tags.  So go back to Karen’s post and make some of your own!

Once you have your presents purchased, have some more fun wrapping up the gifts.

And there’s no need to stop at wrapping gifts like this for Christmas!
Think:  birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, new neighbors, baby showers, etc.

Be the one at the party where your gift makes a statement before they ever see your gift.  🙂

If would like some more inspiration, head over to my Make It Look Pretty board,
or just search Pinterest or the internet in general.

And a side note….if you are looking for a delicious coffee cake for Thanksgiving morning
or sometime over the weekend, head over to the Tasty Kitchen
and check out the Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze.


I jazzed mine up a bit by adding butterscotch chips and toffee pieces to the topping,
instead of walnuts, before I baked it.  {Not a fan of walnuts.}

And it is OH. SO. GOOD!
