I’ll always be a fan of handmade paper. It could be because of its inconsistencies and unique features that make it one of a kind — and one of a kind is always good to gift. It could be because both sides of the paper are usable and therefore, wonderful to help coordinate stacked gifts without letting on that you used the same sheet. Let’s just say that handmade paper is a win-win. To recreate this look, here’s what you need:
Handmade vintage style wrapping paper, double-sided
Antique bronze washi tape
Silk ribbon (I used 1/4″ champagne)
Round cork tag
Mini square gold foil card
Mini square glassine envelope
First, wrap the larger gift with the wrapping paper, using the more patterned side. Wrap the smaller gift with the opposite side. This helps keep the gifts coordinated with the same color scheme, but adds some depth. Secure the flaps with double-sided tape and place washi tape over the seams.
Stack the gifts and tie down with silk ribbon. I chose to do four loops for a tad bit more extravagance. Secure the cork tag. Lastly, slip your mini card into the envelope, seal with washi tape, and slide under the silk ribbon. Done!
PS: come back on Thursday to see what was inside this wrapped gift!
It’s all about creating the fall mood these days…

You just might find this series of wrapped gifts familiar. Yup, that’s because I’ve been slowing blogging them over the last couple months. You can find links to each separate one below.
Wrapping gifts is such a thrill for me, but I’m also a fan of coordinating. This set of wrapped packages was for a friend’s baby shower and you’ll find elements that each gift shares: confetti and color scheme. The confetti was either on the wrapping paper, in the form of sequins, or cut from tissue paper.
Are you a fan of coordinating your stack of gifts? I do it every time. Seriously.

When you don’t have an incredible amount of time to wrap up a gift, but you still want that statement, all you need to do is add one flashy piece. Today’s gift wrap idea is just that. Here’s the breakdown of what you need:
Pastel polka dot paper in two different colors (found both these versions at Home Goods)
Gold glitter string
Small wooden gift tag
Start by applying ModPodge glue to one side of the wooden gift tag. Cover with glitter, shake off any excess, and let dry. Meanwhile, begin wrapping your gift with one of the wrapping papers you choose, securing with double-sided tape. Next, cut a skinny strip of paper from your second roll of wrapping paper, just enough to wrap around the middle once. Secure that with the tape as well. Next, wrap your box several times with the glitter string and tie with a knot on the backside. Once your glitter tag is dry, tie that onto the gift with more glitter string. Done!
This card was custom created to give to a father on Father’s Day. The card is a family portrait in paper form, cut from 13 pieces of paper. Just adorable.
