Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with String

When it came to my gift wrapping this year I new I wanted to keep it simple and, as much as possible, use things I already had.  And I managed to do just that!  In fact, all I bought was an extra roll of paper, and haven't had to open it yet.

I wrapped everything in brown paper, wrapped a piece of wide, sheer, shiny ribbon around the middle, and then tied a piece of twine around that.  I just made it up as I went along, and I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but I really like the contrasts in dull and shiny, and simple and elegant.

When it came to the "tags" I knew they would need to be simple too.  Since there would be no repeats or confusion, I decided to just use letters. M for Mom, D for Dad, A for Amanda, and J for Jonathan.  I found some stencils and played around with different ways of filling them in, and landed on the simple outline.  No surprise there I guess!

 And thanks to Pinterest, I found a way to jazz up the addresses on my Christmas cards.  Just don't go stalking my friends!

  1. Aimee, you are so creative and fun. Looking forward to opening the "M" gifts, but more than the gifts I'm excited about being able to spend time with you at Christmas.
