As if you needed more...

...ideas from me on how to use brown kraft paper for gift wrapping. I know, I should just be quiet on this topic - you all know I love it and you all have your own wrapping of choice.

I did a mixture of wrapping this year and not as elaborate as last year! But, a few just jumped out at me as turning out really cute and I could not resist sharing, if you will indulge me!

Ok, I will now leave you alone about this at least until next December - hee hee!

Beautiful gift wrapping...I don't get tired of seeing your inspiration at all....in fact it inspires me greatly when I am lacking my own...

Ginger said...

Your wrapping is as much of a present as the present itself. I wonder how anyone (other than the littles) would want to open them?

Wendi said...

You wrap the cutest packages!

Jenny said...

Cute wrapping. I love to find cute gift boxes with lots of ribbon added on top.

Michele Norman said...

WONDERFUL, Monica! I did kraft wrapping this year too but just with a piece of torn fabric for the ribbon and a punched tag w/hemp like string...I was going for "rustic"! :-) I wasn't a reader of your blog last year! I would love to see what you did last year! I suppose it's in your archives? :)

From your inspiration, I now use brown kraft paper almost exclusively for holidays(other than Christmas). It is easily stamped or adorned with scraps of paper to suit the occasion. I will never tire of seeing your ideas. Just let us know the next time you see it on sale!

Being new to crafting my own things, I adore posts like these. Now where do I find Kraft paper? I've never even heard of it.

These turned out wonderful. Clarice

You inspired me last year. This year it's all brown paper I find at the Dollar Tree, it's 3M craft paper, and pretty fabric ribbons. A vintage looking tag and that's it. Very simple and clean looking and easy to pick out amongst the other gifts.

Oh, no, don't you dare leave us alone until next Christmas -- these are wonderful! Keep sharing your delightful homespun creations! I agree with a post above, your attention to detail is impressive! These warm and wonderful wrappings take me back to when I was a kid and my mom put special effort into wrapping our gifts with those thoughtful touches. I'm now in my 40's and I will always remember and cherish that - and so will your children! Monica, God has truly blessed your family with a wife and mom who surely would have pleased the writer of Proverbs 31! Blessings to you and yours! (I read your blog daily, even though I'm not a blogger or regular commenter.)

I love your wrapping ideas! I am sure we all enjoying seeing them. Sometimes I just draw a blank and need some inspiration. And you have great handwriting.
Thanks for sharing.

How creative and artistic! I'm sure if I tried it, my gifts would just look like gifts wrapped in a grocery bag! :) Very nice and please...keep sharing!

I love it! You don't need to apologize, I love seeing all your ideas using brown paper! I use it to wrap all of our gifts as well.
Blessings!

Very cute!!! Love it! I used brown paper to wrap gifts in last year! I haven't purchased any of it this year...so I may just be using regular paper this year! Have a great season celebrating Jesus' birth!
