5 Quick Gift-Wrapping Ideas.

Just popped in to say hello!
I thought I'd show a few simple and creative ideas to wrap up your presents in seconds, if you haven't yet.
1. Newspaper, Burlap and Twine:

Wrap up the present in newspaper, burlap ribbon and twine, hot glue pinecones down, add a simple coordinated tag, and you're done!
Check my article "Wrapped Up in the News" in the upcoming issue of Somerset Life for more ideas to gift-wrap using newspaper.

2. Fabric and Scrap Wreaths:

Use fabric instead of paper, and top with a little wreath made with wool and fabric leftovers.

3. Sheet Music (or ledger or book paper) and Ribbon Roses:

Cover a box entirely or wrap- up your gift in old paper. Then top with a gorgeous ribbon rose (my free tutorial here). Make a Christmas tag instead of the Paris-inspired one shown above.

4. Vintage Pattern Paper, Doily and Glittered Birdie:

As easy as A, B, C! Use Divine Twine in a color of your choice and add a rusty, old key and a glittered bird. A fresh fir tree twig would be a great, and divinely scented, addition.

5. Pattern Paper, Doily and Wish Ticket:

Add greenery or/and a bell for a Christmas-sy touch.
