brown paper packages

I love wrapping gifts- creating something that looks so pretty, so enticing, it's almost a shame to open. (oh but you do!) I also have an affinity for wrapping with craft paper. It's the mix of ordinary and special that appeals to me. 

Here are some of my favorite ideas to give you a little inspiration as you finish wrapping up all those holiday gifts.
