artful wrapping and free gift tags

I'm in a wrapping frenzy! I started leaving wrapping to the last minute when my oldest was a toddler. It's just not worth re-wrapping everything that the little ones unwrap! Or maybe you're just a procrastinator (also like me). Here are a few simple wrapping ideas to make your packages really special this season.

Using plain white wrapping paper, I made these small gifts bright and cheery with little effort. Try adding a sprig of berries and a sparkly bow for a huge visual impact.

This polka-dot paper isn't necessarily just for Christmas, but I added a fancy satin ribbon to dress it up and make it seem a little more Christmas-y.

Add a jingle bell or simple ornament to a small gift to add some flair.

We took plain tins and dressed them up with just a piece of patterned paper (cut out and glued to the top) and some ribbon to give away these cute bottlecap magnets.

A cute tag can totally dress up simple packaging. Here are links to some of our favorite FREE gift tags on the Web. Just download and print! Don't forget to thank these amazing women for their generosity!
