Brown paper packages tied up with string……these are a few of our favorite things!
Kraft paper wrapping has been a favorite forever. Newspapers or brown paper bags also give the same feel. We have quite a selection of rustic wrapping supplies here at the store! Burlap ribbon and bags….lace and muslin ribbons, burlap bags in all sizes, kraft wrapping paper, and jute twine…..even a few rusty bells…..find the rest in your yard and you are set!
Pine cones and cedar sprigs instantly transform your wrapping into woodsy wonders.Burlap, which is really all the rage this year, now comes in nice ribbon rolls, so it’s very easy to use. However, if you find it is difficult to tie or glue on a package, try stapling the burlap ribbon right on the box or the paper bag!To tie it everything together, use strings of all sorts: baker’s twine, raffia, jute or hemp twines, wool and pompoms – anything with a natural feel! Whether it is by adding a piece of lace, doily, or ribbon, a touch of white mixes beautifully with the natural earth tones of Kraft paper.
Try hand stamped names, floral picks, or find a variety of adhesive decorations on the scrapbooking isle!Decorate with wood twigs (have fun picking them up with the kids on your next outing!), fir branches (real or fake!), dried leaves, pinecones and berries…
