Holiday Wrapping Inspiration

I am a big fan of kraft paper, always have been.  I’m all for the simple kraft look with twine & paired with a little green.  But why not spruce up your paper with a hand painted design?  It doesn’t need to be perfect and you definitely don’t need to be an artist.  In fact, I kind of like the  inconsistency….it gives it more character ;)  I decided to mix it up this year with a few different designs.

All you need is the kraft paper, a fine brush (or whatever size you prefer for your design), black paint, and a little water for mixing.  This isn’t just reserved for the holidays….you could create any design to fit your occasion!  I am sure most of you are done with your wrapping….but if you’re not, don’t forget you can download my holiday tags here! xx

I created this set of gift tags based on a few of my recent holiday greeting card designs.  I am offering them to you as a free printable as a thanks for following along, encouraging me, and in turn, inspiring me in so many ways!  I hope they can add a little something extra to your holiday packages this year!

Just print the file out onto cardstock, cut around the edges, punch a hole, and string with twine.  Happy wrapping!

These girls know how to throw a party!  Instead of throwing the traditional holiday soiree, they decided to go with an out-of-the-box party that was more fantasy than real life. And when it comes to fantasy, what’s better than unicorns?  I created a whimsical design for the invitation, and a larger than life unicorn poster for their game of “pin the horn on the unicorn” (a whole lot of fun after a few cocktails!).  Everything turned out so magical.

All of the photos and party details can be found over one Glitter Guide!
