What a great way to share old photographs. Copying them is so easy these days.
Love how the black satin ribbon looks with the green and the stamped gift tag. The splash of cedar finishes the job.
The name of the recipient becomes the major design element in this wrapping idea.
Cutting snowflakes from different coloured paper and adding them to the plain paper works to add a spalsh of colour. Simple butcher twine manages to look elegant with this pairing.
I love this one with red yarn and kraft sticks with holes drilled in them. Of course it is the repetition that makes the design.
Love this look with red raffia ribbon and strips of black and white printed paper. What you add between the raffia is up to one's imagination.
Coloured tape and a button on a string. How colourful and simple?
To get this effect I would use scraps of tulle or netting and then over tie it with twine.
Wondering what to do with that left over burlap? Wonder no more. I made burlap bags years ago to package driftwood Santa's I hand painted. When you ravel out the tops and include a colourful yarn for tying , it looks very festive. Burlap will also take a simple stencil using paint.
Over wrapping newsprint with burlap and adding a lovely gift tag and pine cones looks very finished and inviting.
