The ABCs of Christmas Gift Wrapping

I love seeing pretty packages under the tree.  My grandmother Oliver always wrapped her presents with nice paper and pretty handmade bows. She would find a sharp pair of heavy scissors and a big bunch of curling ribbon and make the longest curling ribbons to put on packages.  To this day I love to see curling ribbons on packages!

I'm going to share with you my ABCs of Christmas Gift Wrapping!  This makes wrapping presents a lot of fun.  Here we go!

Using pretty paper, wrap your package using invisible tape. 

Christmas Gift Wrapping using washi tape


Tie ribbons, string, washi tape or even decorated duct tape to accent the top of the package.

Tie on a label that says "to" and "from" or make this darling initial to place on your package! Using wire cutters, bend a paper clip into the first initial of the person who the gift is for!

It is all about creativity here!  Look for coordinating colors and textures but don't be afraid to venture out on your own!
