    Thank you for sharing these inspiring wrapping ideas and enjoy the holidays!

    This year I will use some vintage tin cans I found at a fleamarket in Frankfurt for wrapping all presents.

    I have been using embellished (drawn on) craft paper for years. My favorite trick is to buy a bunch of store price tags and use them for gift tags.

    Holly – such a great name for this time of year!! Enjoy your break from blogging – I will miss you!

    I am totally into wrapping with found objects this year… the main theme being maps of places I’ve traveled to (often free from tourist offices etc.)… i also use newsprint that I test my prints all over… this gets really layered and interesting. I once had someone frame the wrapping paper (which I would have typically tossed!) true recycling!

    Thank you for sharing these cute ideas! I turned our Co-op shopping bags inside out and used those for wrapping this year. They’re crinkled, but give a nice “brown paper packages” look :). Merry Christmas!

    Wonderful ideas, so amazing! I made some gift wrap too, but not such a nice one! And I saw that you were using Masking tape. It’s so amazing, isn’t it? You can do everything you want with masking tape. I’m a big fan of it like I am a big fan of your website!

    best wishes,

    Nice one! I’m all about the washi tape and twine! I love the little bunting though :)

    I used wool this year – it was a cool cheap substitute for ribbon.
