Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With String
I love pretty packages, and I especially love receiving them! For two years I went all out in the Christmas wrapping department going so far as to make every gift under the tree coordinate, much to Josh’s annoyance. I bought elaborate gift wrap online, headed to Michael’s for bags full of ribbon, and even adorned some of them with faux flowers and birds. Then I started receiving my orders from Purl Soho in simply wrapped brown paper packages. I fell deeply, deeply in love with the simplicity of those packages and then when I finally was ready to open them ( I needed a few days to just admire my stack of treasures) I peeled back the paper to reveal a second layer of wrapping that was hot pink tissue paper held together with a perfectly coordinated label. The whole unwrapping experience filled me with such joy and delight that I quickly abandoned my fancy shmancy wrapping techniques and adopted Purl Soho’s simple is classy philosophy.
Now that I had all my baby gifts finished for my new nephew I was ready to package everything up with just as much care and attention to detail as I had put into the making of the gift. I headed to Michaels once again to pick up tissue paper, string, and craft paper. Before I began wrapping though, I had to create the perfect labels and gift tags so I went to Avery and started designing my little heart out.
I can not tell you how much I love the look of all these packages stacked up together, there’s just something about it that soothes my aesthetic soul!
I found a white whicker basket stored in one of my closets and knew it would be perfect for piling all the gifts in. Once everything is unwrapped and put away the basket can be used for toys, bath products or diapering supplies.
So now the gift is complete and ready to ship…I kinda need someone else I know to have a baby so I can keep crafting all this adorable stuff. I’m on a roll here, so yeah, ladies, get on that!
