Several years ago, I started choosing somewhat of a theme for my Christmas gift wrapping.
One year I used all silver paper and purple ribbon for all the gifts.
One year I had really cute, sparkly-colored, polka-dot paper and striped paper and chevron paper that coordinated.
Another year I did a deep red polka-dot paper with ribbons and button embellishments. You can see some of those packages over here ~
I also often use real ribbon on the gifts instead of the curly paper ribbon. I love real ribbon! That reminds me. I saw the neatest ornaments created out of ribbon in a magazine. I tore out the page and since I have a WHOLE YEAR, I think they would be a lot of fun to make for next year. We shall see.
Back to gift wrap.
This year I bought several rolls of paper at Ikea that I liked together. Then I found a roll of Kraft paper with gold dots at Hobby Lobby and added it to the mix.
I made paper flowers and used gold and silver bells and buttons for the center and I’m using them on the gifts this year. I loved how it all came together!
Hop over here for a DIY for the paper flowers!
I so enjoy having a gift wrap theme. It makes the gifts look so pretty all piled together.
