It’s that time of the year. We’re all going to be giving as well as receiving gifts for one holiday or another, and hey! some people have birthdays and weddings and so on at this time of year, too. So gift giving is sort of an thing on most of our minds right now.
I have to admit, I’m rarely as creative about presentation as I am about the actual gifts. I figure if I get paper and a ribbon on it, I’m doing pretty good. But then I see ideas that make me wonder if I couldn’t do better. You know, things like the adorable packaging above crafted from tissue paper, silhouettes from a clip-art book, and a couple stickers. This and eleven other simple but effective and fun ideas can be found in this slide show at Country Living. I may well be adapting a couple of these concepts to my own fell purposes!
I found this cute idea for gift boxes covered in butterflies or bows at Adelle, along with a couple other fun thoughts to make gifts festive.
If you have a few burned out Christmas lights, you can try making this fun lightbulb snowflake to brighten up a holiday package. Head over to Good Housekeeping for instructions and more fun ideas.
Giving gifts is fun… and with a little imagination, wrapping them can be, too!
