Pretty Packages #prettypackaging



Pretty papers Pretty ribbons Pretty packages. The prettiest of paper wrapped presents all stacked together under the tree makes a beautiful display and choosing those papers wisely can make them part of the decoration. Since it is mad dash shopping and wrapping time as Christmas is just over a week away I thought I would share some of my favorites for making all those presents pretty for gift giving and while they are under the tree. #1. Red & White Red & white stripes wrapped with a soft pale pink bow- sigh... it's simply love. This paper is pretty enough to leave just as it is but add a reindeer ornament as a package topper and it is perfection. #2 Shoot for the Stars Simple gold with white stars- seriously another favorite paper this year. I love the simplicity and yet glam feeling this one has. Gold and silver papers are always a dazzling hit- and they don't have to be shiny. Subtle matte metallics are perfect for an understated elegance Tie with a grosgrain ribbon and a sprig of cedar. #3. Whimsy Oh this Santa paper- seriously adorable. Brown paper printed with a muted pattern is so sweet and charming for a whimsical feeling under the tree. I love the simplicity of the paper and the pattern that lets the charm of the rustic Santa scene come through. #4. Gilded Hearts This is actually not a traditional wrapping paper- I found it at the craft store and it was just a printed art paper. But who says wrapping paper has to be wrapping paper? I thought it would be perfect for a few gifts for the photos in Romantic Lifestyle Magazine when there was no holiday wrapping paper to be found yet. #5. Brown Paper Packages Tied up with strings... or a satin ribbon :) Brown painters paper is perfect for a rustic chic look under your tree. It is economical as you can buy a huge amount in a roll at Lowe's and use it on a ton of packages. For a little shabby elegance- tie with a satin ribbon and top with a dried rose. #6. Simple Whites Another easy one and you can mix and mingle patterns like subtle stripes and embossing. Keep your ribbons a similar color- but vary the sizes and add a pop of color like the red berries to white packages for an extra special touch. #7. Scandinavian Christmas Mr. Reindeer again, because I love him on this one too. The soft Scandinavian pattern on this paper is so pretty and mixing the red stripes with this one creates a charming display.
