Christmas Gift Wrap Inspiration

I've been looking for some Christmas wrapping inspiration to share with you and stumbled upon these lovely images below. I have sourced some gift embellishments that could be used to reproduce similarly wrapped presents. You can use simple brown/white paper, wrap with ribbons of your choice and glue your embellishment onto your present with a hot glue gun and voila!  

large sheets of white paper can be used to wrap presents which can be dressed up with varying embellishments from simple shells and hemp ribbon to silk roses and velvet ribbon. Little cost but big impact!

  1. What a great post, full of inspiring ideas! For a rustic look I usually use brown paper, but I think I'll switch to white paper now. It looks heavenly!

  2. Fabulous gift wrapping ideas! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Lee, I love the ideas you have shared. They are gorgeous. We used to have a huge roll of white paper at work and I now wonder what happened to it as it hadn't been used in years. I wonder if someone got the same idea as you, LOL Merry Christmas. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
