Creative Gift Wrapping Day #3

Today I have two creative gift wrapping ideas that have a more natural feel. Perfect for the eco-conscious recipient in your life!

Rosemary Gift with Bells


Brown paper bag or wrapping paper
Fresh cut rosemary
Red ribbon (fat)
Smaller ribbon
Jingle Bells
Hot glue gun
Deckle scissors
Letter stickers
Plain gift box

Cut a band of brown paper for around the middle of your gift box. Cut the edges of the band with deckle scissors. Secure the band around the package with tape.

 Arrange some springs of rosemary on top of the package.

Tie the sprigs together with red ribbon.

Attach a few jingle bells with smaller ribbon. Then secure the ribbon, rosemary, and jingle bells to the package with hot glue.

 Add some decorative letters to the bottom of your gift.

“It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas!”
 Rosemary Gift with Beverage Napkin


Brown paper bag or wrapping paper
Fresh cut rosemary
Red ribbon
Decorative beverage napkin or doiley
Button or embellishment
Hot glue gun
Letter stickers
Plain gift box

 Wrap your gift in brown paper. Take out one beverage napkin.

 Cut around edges of napkin.
 Open napkin and glue to the package with a small amount of hot glue.
 Tie a red ribbon around the gift.

Tuck some rosemary into the bow and hot glue a button on the center of the bow.

 And who says you have to use brand new brown paper? I like the texture of this re-used brown paper. Now that is what you call eco-chic!
“Brown paper packages tied up with string. These are a few of my favorite things.”

  2. Oh, you do have that artist's eye for seeing what could be. These are truly lovely. Ever think of doing a book on wrapping? Then, I could buy it and NOT forget any of these great ideas. Online publishing, self-publishing, Etsy pdf???

    Thanks for sharing, as always:-}
